Play Area Alessio Galgani

The Fun Beach for the Youngest in Follonica

The 'Alessio Galgani' play area was created in 2017, on the Levante beach in the Senzuno area.

It was strongly desired by Mayor Andrea Benini, in memory of Alessio Galgani, a child from Follonica who died prematurely following a serious illness in December 2016, and who had grown up and taken his first steps on that very beach. The beach serves as a perfect place for kids to have fun, and in the summer it is also equipped with football goals, an enclosed court and a volleyball net.

Charity beach soccer tournaments are often organised there, but it is accessible to anyone who wants to enter and enjoy the beach
This has made the play area even more of a meeting place for young people, giving them a dedicated space to have fun.

Once a year, generally in August, the play area also hosts the "Alessio Galgani" Memorial, a 2-day Beach Soccer tournament to remember Alessio, in the place where he grew up, in which hundreds of children and teens participate.
