Celebrative Sticker #102: THE GREAT TORINO – RENATO GANDOLFI!

Grande Torino forever!

In collaboration with the Museo del Grande Torino we are pleased to announce the release of 23 solidarity stickers dedicated to the “immortals” and to that unforgettable season of football, to the Legend of Grande Torino, including 18 players, 2 coaches, club staff, journalists and on-board staff lost their lives in the plane that crashed in Superga on 4 May 1949.

75 years from that day, through the solidarity Celebrative Stickers, the name, the myth, the legend, the history of Grande Torino will be retraced, the team that every Italian in his heart cannot help but love and respect. An unforgettable season of Italian football, the invincibles in the grenade shirt.

“The tragedy is not dying, but forgetting.. and we do not forget”, the Celebrative Sticker #102 is dedicated to Renato Gandolfi.

Renato Gandolfi was born in Turin on 17 November 1927. He grew up in the Turin youth team before moving on loan to Carrarese. In 1948/49 he returned to the Granata, as second goalkeeper behind Valerio Bacigalupo. He defends the goal on two occasions, contributing to the victory of Grande Torino’s last championship. Having escaped the Superga tragedy and remained at home due to a technical choice, he remained in the squad the following year too.

In the 1950s he played between Legnano, Piacenza and Genoa. Penalty-saving goalkeeper, in particular at Genoa he is remembered for saving a decisive one to save them against Verona in the 1957/58 season. After leaving the world of football he took up the role of water polo coach, his children followed their father’s passion for this sport. Renato played over 300 games in Serie A, Roberto won a championship with Bogliasco and participated in the World Cup, European Championships and the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics.

The Grande Torino disappeared in Superga on 4 May 1949, but its legend had already begun before that.

First edition in a numbered edition of 106 copies.
