Wushu: Modernity or tradition? Discussion about its state in Italy and abroad
The first meeting of Wushu enthusiasts, teachers and scholars has been held by the F.I.G.C. (Federazione Italiana Gioco Calcio) [Italian Federation Football Game] centre of Coverciano, Florence (Italy) on 26 September 2010 in the Museo del Calcio (Museum of Footbal).
The meeting has been a wonderful opportunity to share and deepen the knowledge of wushu as taught in Italy and its level as taught in China; its history and religious components.
Participants know there will be room for further meetings.
Speakers have delivered papers regarding its history; discussed on the definitions of traditional and modern wushu and looked at its rituals.
