Czech Celebrities

Czech Celebrities Alfonso Mucha Alfons Maria Mucha was born on July 24, 1860 in Ivančice, Moravia (a region of today's Czech Republic, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire). The son of a court usher, Ondřej Mucha (1825-1891), and his second wife Amálie Malá (1822- 1880), a woman of humble origin but of great intelligence, Alfons already very young revealed his artistic vocation, which manifested itself in his many drawings of reality around him: flowers, horses, monkeys were all subjects that captured his fervent attention, becoming in this way recurrent in his very first graphic production.A decisive impulse, in any case, was given to him by the religious formation he received on the initiative of his mother, a devout Catholic practitioner. The young Mucha, in fact, spent several years at the church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary of Ivančice, where he was acolyte and choir; it was his talent in singing that allowed him, at the age of eleven, to go to the choir of the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul, in the city of Brno, where he also completed secondary studies at the Slovanské gymnasium. In Brno, the young Alfons grew up in the patriotic environment that belonged to the Czech national revival movement, from which he drew his love for the Moravian civilization and its traditions; also the ecclesiastical environment left deep traces on his imagination, animated by the imposing mass of cathedrals, by the penetrating aroma of incense, by the sound of the bells and generally by impressions that accompanied him throughout his life and marked in a particularly intense way the artistic production. 24

Martina Navratilova She is the greatest single, double and mixed double player who has ever lived. He is the only person in the world to have won, in all existing specialties, all Grand Slam tournaments and WTA Championships, in addition to the Fed Cup [2]. Among his records he also holds that of Wimbledon wins in singles, with 9 successes, the highest number of matches played and won in singles and the highest number of titles won in singles and doubles. With Chris Evert, he generated one of the most famous rivalries in history: the two, in fact, have faced 80 times, including 14 in Slam finals, with the Czechoslovakian tennis player who won 43 of these matches. Zdenk Zeman Zdeněk Zeman was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia, in a residential area on the banks of the Vltava on May 12, 1947. His father Karel was a primary hospital while his mother, Květuše Vycpálková, was a housewife. [2] It will be his maternal uncle, Čestmír Vycpálek, former Juventus coach, to transmit his passion for sport. From 1966 to 1968, with his sister Jarmila, he left his uncle Čestmír in Palermo to visit him and spend the summer holidays together, but in this period the political uprising broke out, leading to the so-called Prague Spring. In the night between 20 and 21 August 1968 the USSR sends military units to restore order. This political instability leads him to move and remain permanently in Italy. Here he will obtain Italian citizenship in 1975, as well as his degree, at the ISEF in Palermo with a thesis on sports medicine, with honors. Pietro Ruvolo e Stefano Grossi 25
