There are footballers who remain in the hearts of fans and fans even after years, it almost doesn’t matter whether you were lucky enough to see them play or not, their name is imprinted in the mind and in the colors of the team where they played. Among these names in the Olympus of football there is also Giacomo Bulgarelli, the solidarity Celebrative Sticker #74.
Giacomo Bulgarelli was born in Portonovo di Medicina (BO) on 24 October 1940. In 1955, at the age of 14, he joined Bologna, after being noticed by Istvan Mike while playing with friends in the backyard. He played for his entire career in his hometown team, leaving an indelible mark of pure class that made him the best Italian midfielder of his generation and the greatest rossoblù of the post-war period.
He boasts the highest number of appearances (486, with 56 goals) in the club’s history. He started as a right winger with a strong sense of goal, then was moved to midfield and became the soul of Fulvio Bernardini’s Bologna. The play-off in Rome against Inter was unforgettable and gave Bologna their seventh scudetto in the 1963/64 season. With Bulgarelli the club won two Italian Cups (1970 and 1974) and an Italian-English League Cup.
In the national team he made 29 appearances and scored 7 goals, European champion in 1968, and also played in two World Cups (Chile 1962 and England 1966). In 1975 he ended his career as an impeccable libero. Subsequently he also became appreciated as a television commentator, to the point that his unmistakable voice was used at the end of the 90s for the FIFA and PC Calcio video games.
Giacomo Bulgarelli, due to an illness, died in his native Bologna on 12 February 2009. The solemn funeral in San Pietro was impressive, testifying to the embrace of the city which will not forget one of its best sons. The curve of the Dall’Ara stadium where the Forever Ultras 1974 and the other organized groups of the rossoblù supporters reside is named after him.
The collaboration with the Bologna Football Club is renewed and strengthened, which collaborated in the creation of this solidarity sticker and authorized the use of the logo.
Thanks to the Bulgarelli family.
