March 27, 1983, a date that will remain in the history of Italian football, especially “that of the past”, with the players who wore the shirt from 1 to 11, the games all on Sunday afternoon, who was not at the stadium with the ear attached to the radio.
That day there was the derby della Mole, the Juventus of Platini and many Azzurri coming from the mundial victory in Espana82 and the Torino FC of another world champion, Beppe Dossena. A probable victory for the black and whites who seemed to be heading towards the Scudetto, but the derby is not a game like any other, the heart of the grenade continues to beat even when all seems lost.
After about 60 minutes, Juventus took the lead 2-0 thanks to goals from Paolo Rossi and Platini. Between the 71st and 74th minute, in the span of 124 seconds, the incredible happened, Torino, coached by Eugenio Bersellini, overturned everything with goals from Dossena, Bonesso and Torrisi.
Forty years after that incredible match, a trilogy of Celebrative Stickers to celebrate the memory and the three players who, together with the rest of the team, were the creators, rebelling against an adverse destiny that seemed already written, in a day that will never be forgotten:
Celebrative Sticker #39: Giuseppe Dossena
Celebrative Sticker #40: Alessandro Bonesso
Celebrative Sticker #41: Fortunato Torrisi
At the same time, the Celebrative Sticker #42 dedicated to Eugenio Bersellini, the unforgettable coach of Torino FC, Inter and Sampdoria.
Celebrative Sticker #41, 3-2!: Torino’s overtaking goal is scored by Fortunato Torrisi, the incredible comeback is completed. Torrisi, who grew up in the Siracusa youth team, played only one season at Toro, but that goal in March 1983 made him an eternal symbol. Other important experiences for him as a footballer for Lazio, Ascoli, Catania and Ternana.
