The Monash students were proudly sponsored by the Monash Prato Centre and TEAMMonash to encourage sporting activity and intercultural exchange among students.

This is what students said about their experience at Euromilano:

"The opportunity to meet students from other countries was invaluable and all the universities were super friendly and worlds of fun. I think there is not enough that can be said for the power of sport to bring people together, especially from different backgrounds, and of different native languages. Sport is common ground no matter the differences."

"I would do Euromilano again in a heartbeat. Looking back on the weekend it was a great way not only to bond with my fellow Prato peers but, also, to meet people from all over Europe."
