European and Italian situation in sport leads to think over the professional and training importance of sport. A reflection on Italian sporting population will be made, analysing how it can be considered as an economic and working force, as stated by EC. The question: “Who cares about people that practise sports?” will be examined under both economic and educational aspects. Starting from these observations the importance of training in sport will be shown. Modern society wishes to fulfil all needs people have. The purpose of life is the possession of anything instead of the pursuit of truth and mutual benefit. Through a specific training, sport as educational way can give a pedagogic knowledge that allows to develop educational values of this primary human activity. Therefore, it is necessary to educate to liberty and well-being in sport, and this is possible only through a training for people who practise sport activities.
