The Cause

The art4sport nonprofit is an Italian organization that believes in sports as therapy for both physical and psychological recovery for children and young people with artificial limbs and prostheses.  

Its mission is to economically aid the families of children with prostheses and provide practical/organizational support so the children can play and have fun through sports in their everyday lives.

The art4sport association is inspired by the story of Bebe - Beatrice Vio, who at the age of 11, sadly lost all four of her limbs. Despite this, she returned to her former life within a year, motivated by the desire to practice fencing. Bebe’s family thus looked into sports prostheses and sports equipment for children with this type of disability and found a disconcerting lack of support from the Italian National Health Care System.

Out of this shortcoming came art4sport, an association that could act as a point of reference for her and other children with the same problems and the same wish to play sports.
