The G.R.S. – Gruppo Ricreativo Sportivo –
The G.R.S. – Gruppo Ricreativo Sportivo, is an association that was founded in 1974 by a number of individuals who, hearing the needs for social activities, took on the responsability to plan, motivate and give birth to the local, but lively, organisation.
There were many concrete achievements starting with the creation of a bocce field (the equivalent of the British lawn bowls) and a sports field which can’t be missed as you arrive in Pentema from Torriglia. The headquarters formation was of great importance in creating a central social gathering venue for all members of the association; following that, the creation of a BBQ and pic-nic area took place, as well as a straw-roof on the water trough, the reconstruction of an old house in the centre of the village and that of an old hay barn.
Today the GRS, recognised as a voluntary association (NPO), is the hearth of the village. The council is re-elected every two years by the members themselves; anf it is responsible for organizing and managing various social and cultural activities such as balls, culinary events, races and competitions, exhibitions, conferences, old photo projections, musical events/concerts, stand-up comedy and theatrical acts and last but definitely not least, the realisation of The Nativity.
