Renzo Trentin, a Venetian in the Hall of Fame, the ‘gotha’ of sport professionalism. Very few personalities have been bestowed this prestigious title and share their commitment to golf as players, events planners and sowers at very high level. ‘Hall of Fame’ or ‘Ark of Glory’, according to a more evocative image, the purpose of the ‘Hall of Fame’ established by the Italian PGA is that of giving the deserved recognition to those who have contributed to boast and spread this game in the world.
