Celebration, sport and charitable giving combined in the 21 kilometres of the Cremona Half Marathon, held for the 16th time on Sunday 15 October, in which professional and amateur sportsmen and women run together along the city’s loveliest streets to support the Aida – Associazione Incontro Donne Antiviolenza charity which works to combat violence against women.


As usual in events where the love of sport and social purpose come together at Cremona, Oleificio Zucchi’s name was prominent amongst the sponsors of the event: the passion underlying the creation of a good, genuine only was included in the participants’ gift packs, which contained products of excellence including the flavoured extra virgin olive oils (orange, lemon, garlic and onion) or the exotic avocado seed oil for the most creative spirits.
