KD in Italy: Day 2, Milan and Rome
Kevin Durant’s second day in Italy began in Milan at the secondary gym of the Lido di Milano, where the basketball star participated in a clinic with the premier Italian under 16 prospects assisted by coach Ettore Messina. Players had the chance to learn from Durant while asking questions afterwards.
Durant’s appreciation for elite sport continued as he visited the Formula One (F1) Grand Prix test in Monza, Italy. He received a personal tour of the Ferrari box, where the team prepared for the world-renowned race. There he got the chance to meet the Ferrari president, the team and the two drivers.
Later in the afternoon, Durant returned to Milan’s city center at the Space23 store, owned by former global football star Marco Materazzi. Greeted by many fans, Materazzi challenged KD to a game of 1-on-1.
Capping off the day, Durant traveled to Rome, to attend a special event with the Virtus Basket players at the Palazzetto dello Sport in front of hundreds of supporters thrilled by the chance to meet with Durant up close and personal.
