THE HISTORY OF SPORTS (Gazzetta dello Sport)


album: The history of sports (Gazzetta dello Sport)

stickers: 144 (1-144)

starter pack: album + 6 stickers (with Sport Week, 19/11/22)

24 outings on Saturday attached to Sport Week

Celebratory album of sport but also and, in some way, above all of the historic Italian pink sports newspaper. Through the front pages that have followed over the decades, from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present day. The stickers are found, six per issue, in the center of the Saturday magazine of the Gazzetta dello Sport. Avoiding unnecessary waste of plastic, the sheet of stickers is one with the staples of the magazine.

Interesting collection for those who want to remember the great moments of sport, which the Gazzetta retraces with a chronological but also in some ways mythological setting of the album.

The collection of stickers goes backwards, starting from the present day, the first stickers recall three important moments of 2022: the Milan championship, the exploits of Jacobs and the Azzurri at the Tokyo Olympics and the incredible European victory at Wembley. unfortunately interspersed with two even more historic failures to qualify for the World Cup of the national football team.

We take the opportunity to recall some events that find ample space in the pages, which the Gazzetta emphasizes with large nine-column titles. Impossible to mention them all:

Matteo Berettini, the first Italian to play in the Wimbledon final
Sofia Goggia, Gregorio Paltrinieri, Niccolò Campriani Olympic gold medalists

Mourinho’s Inter conquer the historic Triplete
Flavia Pennetta and Francesca Schiavone, respectively queens of the US Open and Roland Garros

The sky is blue above Berlin, Italy world champion for the fourth time
Filippo Magnini, Stefano Baldini, the Setterosa of the Olympic gold medals of water polo

“The Eternal City” dominates in football, Rome and the year before Lazio are champions of Italy
After 21 years, Michael Schumacher’s Ferrari wins the world title

Juri Chechi is the “Lord of the Rings” at the Olympics

We don’t know if wanted or not, but the years from 1959 to 1962 are not mentioned in the album

The Italian expedition reaches the summit of K2
In London 1948 Consolini is gold medal in disc

1938/1909 Italy of football is two world champions in 1934 and 1938
Primo Carnera (who is mentioned on the album as Pietro..) is world champion
Ondina Valla gold medal at the Berlin Olympics

The pink pages, instead, are tinged with blue to celebrate other sporting champions, always specifying the year but divided in a different way:

The first issue of the newspaper (April 3, 1896), the first edition of the Giro d’Italia, the moon landing, the massacre at the Munich Olympics, the attack on the Twin Towers, farewell to Pope Wojtyla

Tazio Nuvolari, Fausto Coppi, Gino Bartali, Nino Benvenuti, Pietro Mennea, Alberto Tomba, Valentina Vezzali, Federica Pellegrini, Valentino Rossi and other myths of Italian sport

Maradona, Merckx, Kobe Bryant, Muhamad Ali, Jesse Owens, Pele, Nadia Comaneci and other legends of world sport

Grande Torino, Facchetti, Rivera, Paolo Rossi, Roberto Baggio, Paolo Maldini, Giuseppe Meazza and other legends of Italian football

If you are a reader of the Gazzetta and of Sport Week, a pleasant and nice addition. If you are not, the low cost of the magazine (2.00 euros) allows everyone to easily complete the collection.
