The structures and fields where the championship finals were played for five years in a row and where the regional committee operates
The Sicilian federal center of beach volleyball was destroyed in the afternoon by a fire that devastated the peripheral area of the city of Catania without sparing the Oasi del Simeto, a very large green lung and the axis of services, so much so as to force the Civil Protection to suspend flight operations at the nearby Fontanarossa airport. Some houses in the area were evacuated for safety, as the wind pushed the flames even in the neighborhoods near the Plaia waterfront area, at that time full of tourists and swimmers. A hell of a fire that kept entire teams of firefighters busy. It is not yet known what caused the fire
In the seaside resort of the Capannine, the customers fled to save themselves, at that time work was also underway to prepare the fields for the Sicilian federal tournament which would involve about thirty specialists over the weekend. All the structures have been destroyed, the damage is incalculable for now, but the bars, services and restaurants scattered throughout the plant have not been saved either. Le Capannine is the place known to all sportsmen who hosted the beach volleyball championship finals for five years in a row, also organized with the support of RCS. The best Italian and international specialists, including Lupo-Nicolai and Carambula-Russi and, among the women, Orsi Toth-Menegatti who are currently engaged in Tokyo in the Games competitions passed through the five fields set up in the structure.
