The Captain forever! Each team has its symbolic players, who become the protagonists of a certain sporting period of the club, loved by the fans and respected by their opponents. The shirt sewn on the chest and a number that no one else will ever have again. Number 6 forever. The Celebrative Sticker #34 solidarity sticker is dedicated to Gianluca Signorini.
Gianluca’s abnegation for the shirt worn has remained in Genoan hearts. Raised in Pisa, his city, “the captain” plays in various teams, Roma, Parma, Livorno, Ternana, to arrive in 1988 in the red and blue Genoa. Here he knows the most epic and important moments of his competitive career, the first year he conquers Serie A, in the following years the Grifone makes history and leaves his mark in Italy as in Europe, with the semi-final reached in the UEFA Cup in the 1991-92 season, with the memorable victory at Anfield Road at Liverpool.
Gianluca, a man with a pure heart, will leave Genoa in 1995 only to return to his native Pisa and help bring the Tuscan club back into the professional ranks after the bankruptcy of 2 years earlier.
Gianluca Signorini passed away at the age of only 42, on November 6, 2002, due to ALS; in reality he is still here with us, Genoans, Pisans, football lovers and the stories of sport and life that intertwine. Gianluca is present in the heart of football lovers, Signorini is forever.
The solidarity sticker Celebrative Sticker #34 was created in collaboration and in support of the Museum of the History of Genoa and follows the Celebrative Sticker #16 by Giovanni De Prà. 80 copies of the sticker will be donated to the Museum in order to support its important cultural activity and sports history.
We want to thank Benedetta Signorini for her willingness to approve our initiative which aims to keep alive the historical and sporting memory of a great champion, immortal for so many of us.
The presentation of the solidarity sticker will be in Genoa, on Saturday 28 January 2023, at 10.30, at the Museum of the History of Genoa. The event is open to the public.
