“The river is formed where the landscape allows the water to flow […]. Therefore, the river does not represent the landscape, but fits into it. It finds its course among the obstacles that are imposed not only by the landscape or by the logic of water, but always and necessity by the interaction of the two elements.
Martin Mordechai Buber, “Ich Und Du”.
On September 6, 2011 the ASD QUARTOTEMPO FIRENZE was born. In the meaning of the name QuartoTempo is enclosed the sense that we want to give to our Sports Association, composed of athletes, technicians, educators, managers, specialists in psychology and education and all those who want to be part of it: in many sports there is a first and a second time that mark the comparison at the sports level between two teams, there is also a third time where the comparison leaves room for sharing between those who were previously “adversaries”, well, we thought of the “fourth time” as a representation of time wider, which is born and feeds in the first three and expands accompanying the person in their daily lives. For us, sport is the tool for getting to know ourselves and others, for taking care of our bodies and our health, for playing and having fun, for feeling involved in the enrichment of a common project. Through sport and play we can establish increasingly significant relationships, sharing with other goals, joys, sorrows and enjoy the deep differences that there are between us all. Our team has been working together for more than 10 years and works with professionalism to accompany each person on their journey with the hope that the athletes, leaving the changing rooms after the shower and entering the “fourth half”, take away an increasing number of things and have the opportunity to give everything that happens to them a richer meaning through their unique legitimate perspective and interpretation.
