Basket at school: Giorgio Clerico

Alberto Bertolotti, Kevin Lu and Noah Williams

Basketball is one of the most popular sports in the world. In Italy, it is well known and practiced by most of the students at our school. Basketball is an exciting sport that pits two teams against each other in a race to see who can score the most points by shooting the ball into the opposing team's basket. One of the most famous leagues is the NBA, National Basketball Association in the United States, with the world's top players.

To represent the sport, we chose a student who attends this school and decided to interview him, asking him about his life as a basketball player. His name is Giorgio Clerico, he was born in Chieri, is in his first year of high school, and plays in Chieri at UBC. He has been playing since he was six years old and still does, at the highest level for his age. He hopes to become a professional player, either in Europe or the United States.


To achieve his dream, he trains for many hours every day. Although school is difficult and complicated and requires a great deal of commitment, he still finds time to train to achieve his dream.

At the age of 14, Giorgio's journey into the world of basketball began on the neighborhood courts, where his dribbling and shooting skills set him apart from other boys.

Recognizing his potential, Giorgio's family enrolled him in the prestigious Unione Basket Collinare (UBC) Chieri, a decision that would mark the trajectory of his career. Under the guidance of experienced coaches, Giorgio honed his skills and evolved into an accomplished player, renowned for his lightning-fast crossovers and impeccable three-point accuracy. With every dribble, Giorgio not only symbolizes the spirit of UBC Chieri, but also embodies the dreams of a small-town boy destined to make it big on the international basketball stage.

Let's all cheer for him!
