Once upon a time it was not so rare for a footballer to spend his entire career in just one club, sometimes with the team in the city where he was born and would live until his last days. Even being a champion and with the possibility of playing anywhere, but beyond what your heart tells you, it’s easier when you play for Bologna in the 1920s and contribute significantly to the team’s triumphs and game.
The Celebrative Sticker #44 solidarity sticker is dedicated to Pietro Genovesi. Born in 1902, at just 17 he was already in the first team, strong with both feet, suitable both on the right and on the left, thanks to his position and his competitive spirit he became a symbol of Bologna which won its first Scudetto in 1925 and repeated in 1929.
Pietro Genovesi also played 10 matches for the national team, participated in the selection that would take part in the 1928 Amsterdam Olympics, winning the bronze medal. At that time the Olympics were the major world competition, for some directly linked to the Rimet Cup which will only begin in 1930. Uruguay is absolutely convinced of this, always sporting 4 stars above its coat of arms, thanks to the victories at the 1924 Olympics and 1928 by beating the Azzurri in the semifinals and subsequently the World Cup in 1930 and 1950.
Round number of appearances in Bologna, 250 with 35 goals. In addition to two championships, with Bologna he also won the 1932 Mitropa Cup and the 1927-1930 International Cup, tournaments that were then highly prestigious competitions.
When he realizes he can no longer play at his best, he decides to retire at the age of just 31, remaining in his Bologna for the rest of his life. He shared almost his entire career with another football monument like Angelo Schiavio, three years younger who was the first historical solidarity sticker Celebrative Sticker #1.
