Celebrative Sticker #94: THE GREAT TORINO – ROMEO MENTI!

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 #94 is dedicated to Romeo Menti.

Romeo Menti was born in Vicenza on 5 December 1919, he grew up in the club of the Venetian city like his older brothers Mario and Umberto. At Vicenza, Romeo played his first official match at the age of 16 and remained in the red and white for 3 seasons, collecting 79 appearances and 34 goals.

A very talented right winger, he moved to Fiorentina and in 1941 arrived at Turin where he won the first of five championships. The war distances him from Piedmont and in the bloodiest period of the conflict he is first at Milan and then at Stabia.

His return to Grande Torino is inevitable and awaited, with which he will score another 30 goals. 5 goals in his 7 appearances for the national team, the Vicenza stadium is named to him.

Romeo Menti died in Superga on 4 May 1949, but his legend had already begun before.

First edition in a numbered edition of 106 copies.
