Artistic gymnastics equipment
The origins of artistic gymnastics date back to ancient times; there is evidence of the discipline having been practised in China, Egypt and Greece.
The first modern forms of gymnastics (both floor exercise and with apparatus) were developed in nineteenth-century Europe.
Several gymnastics schools were established in Italy at the turn of the 1800s, and the Italian Gymnastics Federation was founded in Venice in 1869.
Practised by both men and women, this sport requires a great deal of effort, constant training, balance and muscular strength. In order for athletes to carry out the various exercises safely, gyms must be equipped with suitable, robust and durable artistic gymnastics equipment.
