Once again, the Italian Championship took place at the now well-established Acquardens center in Pescantina (VR).

As always, the Italian Championship is valid for qualification to the Aufguss-WM 2024, which will be held in the event sauna of Thermen Bussloo (Bloemenksweg 38, RN VOORST - The Netherlands) from September 8 to 15, 2024.

18 individuals and 6 teams registered for the championship.

A first selection phase for the Singles category only took place from April 12 to 14, 2024, and the best 12 individuals won access to the qualification for the final.

The qualifications on Friday, May 24 and Saturday, May 25 led to the selection of the 5 best individuals and teams who competed for the title in the final on Sunday, May 26.

For the pre-qualification, the jury was composed of national judges, while for the qualification and the final, as per the new AufgussWM rules, the two juries (singles and teams with inversion for the final) were each composed of 3 national WM-certified judges and 3 international foreign WM-certified judges.

These were intense days of bonding and emotions, also for the 10th anniversary of AISA!

A great family: passionate guests, jury, Meister/Meisterin competitors and Meister/Meisterin spectators, together in this long-awaited event, full of expectations and dreams.

Days full of professionalism and sharing, all united by a great passion that, through the meticulous care of every detail in the preparation of spaces, materials, carefully studied and re-studied choreographies, musical trilogies thought out and rethought, meticulously chosen, dosed and matched oils, gives well-being and envelops guests and the jury in a magic of sensations that can be "breathed in" even before the ritual and continues beyond the sauna door, ritual after ritual...

An Aufguss Championship is therefore never just a competition, but an opportunity to continue to remind ourselves that AISA is a large family of enthusiasts who believe in a wellness culture characterized by generosity and the daily commitment of all of us.
