The Federazione Italiana Sport del Ghiaccio (FISG), is the governing body for ice sports in Italy. It was founded in 1926 to promote the practice of winter sports on ice and to coordinate events. Giancarlo Bolognini, the former major of Bolzano, is the president of FISG (2006). The FISG is a member of a number of international sports organizations including the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) and the International Skating Union (ISU).


The first Italian Federation of Ice Sports was established in 1926 in Milan by the fusion of three pre-existing federations, those for bobsleding, ice skating and ice hockey. In 1933 the FISG combined with the Italian skiing federation to create the Federazione Italiana Sport Invernali (FISI) (Italian Federation for Winter Sports ), with its headquarters in Rome.

After World War II, when Italian sports organizations were being recreated, ice hockey and skiing were separate from ice skating. In 1952 ice hockey again joined with ice skating creating the new Federazione Italiana Sport del Ghiaccio.


The FISG has authority over the following sports:

  • Curling
  • Ice hockey
  • Speed skating
  • Figure skating
  • Short track speed skating
  • Ice stock sport
