The games of Proteus represent change. The possibility of achieving what we are. The return to where we belong.
We have designed an activity mainly based on motor games for people who want to return to an active, healthy and happy life. We want that people, who have been remained inactive for a long time, can perform physical activity in a safely, effectively and amusing way. The correct planning and progression of the games are the key, because in the change resides in the growth.
Homer tells in the Odyssey how Proteus helped the Greek heroes to return home. Proteus was the deity who possessed the gift of metamorphosis; he was the only one who can tell them the way back to his homeland. But in order to he reveals that secret, the heroes had to grab him and not let him go whatever happened, until, finally, he give up.
[…] he became a hairy lion, then a dragon, a panther, a great wild boar; He also became into impalpable water and a leafy tree, but we retained him with great courage […]
Only in that way, Proteus revealed the way back to the land that gave birth to them. Hence the protean, can be understood as the life that resurges and expands through the expression of new forms.
