With the support of Eugenio Alphandery, the year 2013 witnessed the birth of the sports group of Officina Profumo – Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella. Formed by most of the employees of the age-old Florentine firm, the team united with a rowing club that engages in the discipline of Dragon Boat Racing.
Dragon boating is a sport practised the world over and involves racing in a standard watercraft with a characteristic prow in the shape of a dragon’s head, propelled by twenty athletes with paddles who row to the rhythm of a drum.
The Santa Maria Novella team has enthusiastically embraced this regimen of training and competitions, demonstrating constant participation and obtaining podium results.
In this case, practising sports is not only a pleasure and leisure, it is also a tool to create and consolidate team spirit to attain shared results.
