100 of these years Genoa 1893! With a certain pride and emotion we are happy to announce the Celebrative Sticker #16 solidarity sticker dedicated to the great goalkeeper Giovanni De Prà, in the centenary of his debut in Genoa football club.
From that distant 1921 and for many more years, even winning two league titles, the goalkeeper would have defended the goal of the oldest club in Italian football. An incredible and indestructible bond with the colors of his city, so much so that he refused important offers from other clubs. A bond that continued throughout his life.
Giovanni De Prà was one of the greatest Italian goalkeepers of the twentieth century, perhaps less celebrated because he was part of an era where there were still no televisions or even mass stickers, but in Genoa they have not forgotten him and never will. His greatness also allowed the national team to achieve results and satisfactions, in particular third place at the 1928 Amsterdam Olympics, an event that is seen by many as the anticipation of the World Cup which will have its first edition only two years later.
We are equally proud to have established a collaboration with the Museum of the History of Genoa, an important cultural reality for our country; the oldest football club in Italy meets Figurine Forever and we could not have chosen a more iconographic footballer to sanction this union.
With this solidarity sticker it will be possible to support the “Adotta con la Figurina” project where Figurine Forever engages annually in different solidarity projects. 100 copies of the 193 printed copies will be donated to the Genoa History Museum to support their activities and their commitment to keeping the historical memory of this incredible team alive. The choice to print 193 copies and not 199 or 160 as is our tradition, is a clear tribute to the year of birth of the Ligurian club, 1893.
