Orsolina 28 came to life in 2016 by the enthusiasm and passion of its founder, Simony Monteiro. She chose an unconventional place, an eighteenth-century farmhouse that once accommodated the monastery of the Orsoline Sisters of Moncalvo. Built in 1794, next to a Romanesque parish surrounded by vineyards, O28 is located between Moncalvo and Penango, the heart of the Monferrato Astigiano region in Italy. The winding hills protect the land, while the Western Italian Alps and Mount Monviso observe from afar. Orsolina Art Foundation was born to promote and transform the future of the performing arts into a social culture. It is a place devoted to the universal language of the arts that transcends time. The spectacular colors and sensations of nature, seasonal gifts and surprises, and breathtaking harmony of the landscape all represent the generating forces and exquisite beauty of Orsolina 28. Orsolina Art Foundation supports the local community by promoting encounters with O28 guest artists and offering complimentary classes to primary schools, introducing students to movement and the world of dance. Their desire at Orsolina 28 is for every individual to experience dance as a powerful vehicle for discovery, freedom, courage, joy, and human connection. O28 offers a breathtaking atmosphere that welcome anyone who wishes to study, research, or explore dance as a means for personal growth. They also support the educational commitment by offering merit-based scholarships and guaranteeing eligible students access to preparatory courses. The Foundation also supports young choreographers through calls for grant-based choreographic residencies. Orsolina Art Foundation is always committed to developing activities of inclusion: motor-skills education for people with or without disabilities, children at risk of marginalization, and people with diseases, in cooperation with associations and foundations of social engagement. Over the years, many artists have shared the magical atmosphere of Orsolina 28, including those who taught, performed, or completed choreographic residencies. To each artist who has contributed to O28, they offer their deepest thanks for embracing our mission and vision.

At Fat Tire Tours, all of our tours have been designed with you, our guest, in mind. In 1999 Founder David Mebane created Bullfrog Bike Tours with a goal of bridging the gap between English-speaking travelers and Paris with a simple three-hour bicycle tour. On the first day of tours in 1999, Bullfrog Bike Tours didn’t welcome a single guest, but that changed very quickly. Though Paris boasted endless competing attractions and options for guests, David’s commitment to providing superior customer service with a focus on giving each customer the fantastic, private, and personal experience they sought quickly set him out from the crowd. As the tours grew in size and popularity, the company built a team obsessed with finding ways to grow and improve. That growth came in the way of several new brands and just as many new locations. Over the next 11 years, now operating as Fat Tire Bike Tours, the business grew to multiple European markets and four domestic locations. Fat Tire Bike Tours introduced three sister brands specializing in Segway Tours, walking tours, and skip-the-line tours. As the company grew in concept, it also grew in reach, eventually welcoming hundreds of thousands of guests globally on an annual basis. In 2015, all of the brands were consolidated into Fat Tire Tours. We are incredibly proud of the cities in which we operate, and feel strongly that they should be protected and preserved so that future generations may experience just as much enjoyment from them as we do. With this in mind, we always strive to offer the most environmentally friendly and sustainable tours possible. Today, with locations across Europe and the United States, the mission remains: to provide safe, fun, and unforgettable experiences through superior customer service that creates memories and smiles that last a lifetime.

AYSO - American Youth Soccer Organization is a nonprofit and the oldest national youth soccer program in the United States. Beginning with only nine teams by a handful of soccer enthusiasts, AYSO was established in 1964 out of a garage in Torrance, California, in an effort to ensure that American kids have the opportunity to be introduced to the beautiful game of soccer. More than 50 years later, AYSO now has thriving programs for kids and adults in nearly 900 communities all over the country – and internationally in the Virgin Islands and Trinidad and Tobago – over eight million AYSO alumni, and a name that’s recognized nationwide. AYSO runs on volunteer power This means registered volunteers run the local AYSO programs all over the country. Additionally, our National Board of Directors, National President, as well as every coach, referee, and Regional Commissioner – the list goes on – is a volunteer. Due to the thousands of volunteers throughout the U.S. donating their time every season, AYSO is as successful and far-reaching as it is today. AYSO’s Six Philosophies are principles that separate AYSO from other sports organizations. These tenets were created to provide a positive, fair and fun soccer experience for all our players. AYSO’s goal is for kids and adults to play soccer, so they mandate that every player on every team must play at least 50 percent of every game. Each year, they form new teams as evenly balanced as possible, providing a stronger learning experience for teams as they play teams comprised of similar ability. It also allows for each player to experience playing with a wide variety of teammates of different skill levels. If you want to play soccer, AYSO welcomes you and gives all youth and adults the opportunity to register and play. A coach can be one of the most influential people in a player’s life, so AYSO requires they create a positive experience for every player in AYSO. Additionally, encouraging player’s effort leads to greater enjoyment, improved skills and stronger motivation in players. They strive to create a positive environment based on mutual respect rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude, and their programs are designed to instill good sportsmanship in every facet of AYSO. All players should be able to develop their soccer skills and knowledge to the best of their abilities, both individually and as members of a team, to maximize their enjoyment of the game.

Manchester City Football Club is an English football club based in Manchester that competes in the Premier League, the top flight of English football. Founded in 1880 as St. Mark's (West Gorton), it became Ardwick Association Football Club in 1887 and Manchester City in 1894. The club's home ground is the Etihad Stadium in east Manchester, to which it moved in 2003, having played at Maine Road since 1923. The club adopted their sky blue home shirts in 1894 in the first season of the club's current iteration, that have been used ever since. They are currently ranked 6th in the all-time English top flight table since its creation in 1888, thus making it one of the country's most successful football clubs. Manchester City entered the Football League in 1892, and won their first major honour with the FA Cup in 1904. The club had its first major period of success in the late 1960s, winning the League, European Cup Winners Cup, FA Cup and League Cup under the management of Joe Mercer and Malcolm Allison. After losing the 1981 FA Cup Final, the club went through a period of decline, culminating in relegation to the third tier of English football for the only time in its history in 1998. They since regained promotion to the top tier in 2001–02 and have remained a fixture in the Premier League since 2002–03. The club received considerable financial investment in both playing staff and club facilities following the club's takeover by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan through the Abu Dhabi United Group in 2008. This started a new era of achievement, with the club winning the FA Cup in 2011 and the Premier League in 2012, both their first since the 1960s, followed by another League in 2014. Under the management of Pep Guardiola City won the Premier League in 2018, becoming the only Premier League team to attain 100 points in a single season. In 2019, they won four trophies, completing an unprecedented sweep of all domestic trophies in England and becoming the first English men's team to win the domestic treble. In addition to winning the third Premier League title in the Guardiola era, City reached their first European Cup final in 2021, where they lost to Chelsea.
Liverpool Football Club is a professional football club based in Liverpool, England, that competes in the Premier League, the top tier of English football.

Founded in 1892, the club joined the Football League the following year and has played at Anfield since its formation. Liverpool established itself as a major force in English and European football in the 1970s and 1980s, when Bill Shankly, Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan and Kenny Dalglish led the club to a combined eleven League titles and four European Cups. Liverpool won two further European Cups in 2005 and 2019 under the management of Rafael Benítez and Jürgen Klopp, respectively; the latter led Liverpool to a nineteenth League title in 2020, the club's first during the Premier League era. Liverpool is one of the most widely supported clubs in the world, as well as one of the most valuable. Liverpool has long-standing rivalries with Manchester United and Everton. In 1964 the team changed from red shirts and white shorts to an all-red home strip which has been used ever since. The club's anthem is "You'll Never Walk Alone".
