Special thanks also to Dr. Beniamino Gavio who did not fail to be close to the Armana Tournament, proving himself to be a great basketball fan and above all a person with a big heart. The demonstration is also the construction of the Cittadella dello Sport which will certainly become a real example of a recreational sports structure at a national level, in which we hope to be able to organize the 2025 Tournament. But returning to 2024, we would always like to remember that the Tournament Armana's primary objective is to donate its proceeds to charity, supporting, as it has for many years now, the Enrico Cucchi Association - volunteers for palliative pain care".

Thus Ferencz Bartocci, CEO of Derthona Basket and Sole Director of Gestion Cittadella: “The Armana Tournament represents one of the most important basketball events in the area. Thanks to Derthona Basket it is making itself known throughout Italy. At a national level it is a tournament which, year after year, is gaining greater acclaim thanks to the skill of the organizers and those who support them. As Cittadella dello Sport, the hope is that, in the future, it can be hosted in this new structure that is being built in Tortona, to unite basketball and the territory even more. The Armana Tournament is also a vehicle for promoting the territory also at a food and wine level, as sport is able to unite many components of the civil life of the territory. This is what the Citadel of Sport will also want to be. Good luck for the 2024 edition, hoping that in 2025 the Citadel can also be the stage for this very important tournament".

“The Armana Tournament has been a fixed summer event for Tortona basketball fans for twenty years now – declares Marco Picchi, president of Derthona Basket. Since the first editions, Derthona Basket has supported the tournament, its organizers and many of our members have competed on the fields to honor the memory of Mario Armana, an unforgettable coach in our history.

Furthermore, it also integrates the value of sport and socialization with an important social and charitable purpose and this gives a very good idea of ​​what and how much sport, such as basketball, can do for its fans and for its territory.
