As reported by the newspaper Il Corriere del Ticino, the children of Mendrisio educational institution will receive a beautiful gift from Roger Federer. The Roger Federer Foundation has launched a sort of competition that is giving away 40,000 francs for projects that aim to create recreational spaces inspired by nature and located in the immediate vicinity of an educational institution.
The Federer Foundation aims to create 100 new natural recreation areas throughout Switzerland by 2025. The pupils of the school of Mendrisio, through the Council of boys and girls have repeatedly expressed the desire to be able to spend the recesses in a less cemented context.

The Mendrisio project was chosen by the Foundation and will receive 40,000 francs for its construction.
On one condition, that the City invests as many. The director of the school Marco Lupi explained: "Obviously it will not be possible to create a lawn, because underneath there is the great hall, but I am sure that something interesting and beautiful can be created, involving all the users of that area, therefore also Scoiattolo and families.
The theme of concrete in Canavée has been on our table for years. Thanks to the Children's Council, it has gained momentum and we have seen a golden opportunity in the tender." The project must be participatory. The spaces that will be created will therefore have to be conceived together by pupils, teachers, the Municipality.
Social and gender policies, Education and Construction are involved in the project. Mendrisio has two years to complete everything. We recall the Swiss Maestro retired from tennis in September 2022, played his last match in doubls at the Laver Cup, alongside his friend and rival Rafael Nadal.
Last week, Roger was the co-host of the Met Gala 2023: in that event he dressed a beautiful Gucci suit and a new amazing Rolex.
