FOR THE ASSOCIATION, FOR THE FUTURE

(5th edition scheduled for January 16th 2021, Bologna, Italy)

Given the new indications of the Government this evening, we anticipate the communications of the individual organizers and we will not be present in Turin on 25 October or other upcoming dates.

As things currently stand, we hope to be able to organize our meeting on January 16th. We take time until the end of November to make a final decision, for now the event is and remains on the calendar.

For other appointments we invite you to contact the individual organizers; we will use this period to definitively reorganize the stock of stickers linked to the STICKER RAISING FOR MADAGASCAR project. There are still several thousand stickers and cards to be cataloged.

Our headquarters at Edicola Birra Fumetteria will always be active but, in order to safeguard the future of the Association and not being able to count on the help of the various publishers (except in very rare cases), we will limit exponentially the collectors with the swap of double stickers. We cannot do otherwise.

At the same time, the release of new stickers/cards of our production is to be considered suspended, except for:
. FumettoForever Card # 2 (announced mid-November, out late 2020)
. FumettoForever Card # 3 (Nathan Never, out late 2020)
It is possible the release of a Celebrative for our gathering in january 2021, all the others are postponed to after March, if not beyond. Unfortunately, no other FanForever Cards are scheduled until the battered world of concerts is able to restart.

The most important news is that all future stickers/cards as well as being limited (almost all to 150 copies) will also be numbered. The numbering will start from the two FumettoForever cards # 2 and # 3. Pre order for our members and subsequent sale to outsiders.

From the end of October, the Figurine Forever membership campaign for the year 2021 will start, the cost will remain unchanged at 20.00 euros. We are preparing a big surprise for our members: the 2021 gift, in addition to the usual annual magnet, will be a numbered card distributed to members only. The copies will correspond to the members, no others will be printed.

The other fundamental advantages for members will be the pre-order on our productions (in some cases, may be sold out before the external sale) and the possibility of purchasing merchandising material made “on demand” only for members (t-shirts, sweatshirts, binders, box for stickers or albums, etc.), another novelty for next year.

Then, hopefully, the times will come back to meet again at Fairs and concerts and to be able to reorganize even moments of swap stickers.

Unfortunately, it will be very difficult to reach the goal of 11 long distance adoptions in Madagascar for 2020, at the moment we are halfway through the funds for the eighth adoption; without fairs and concerts, it is difficult to raise over € 1,000 between now and the end of the year. Whatever happens, the campaign will continue into 2021 and beyond as planned. Support for other organizations such as the Wildlife Protection Center of Monte Adone, S’Apre Onlus, Maestri di Strada Onlus, Casa delle Donne, is also affected by this unfortunate period we are experiencing. We are happy to have at least managed to deliver the 150 Celebrative of Gigi Meroni to the Grande Torino Museum, we are already working with them for other initiatives in 2021, as well as a collaboration with the Genoa Museum should also start and we hope with other cultural realities in Italy.

In this extremely complicated period we believe in the great heart of collectors and on those who have learned to know us in these 12 months (the Association was born in September 2019) and who will want to continue to support us for next year, as well as new members who want to become part of this great Family. The support of the members allows that fundamental economic basis for the life of the Association, from 31 October 2020 it will be possible to renew the card, from the end of November the new membership card, magnet and the “Only for us” card will be ready.

A big hug to everybody

GIGI MERONI FOREVER!

(from left to right: Giampaolo Muliari, Emiliano Nanni and Domenico Beccaria)

On Thursday 15 October, we were guests of the Museo del Grande Torino e della Leggenda Granata (http://www.museodeltoro.it/). The occasion was the delivery of the 150 Gigi Meroni Celebrative Stickers, donated by our Association to be able to sell at the Museum as contribution to their activities (https://figurineforever.com/en/2020/07/06/celebrative-sticker-7-meroni-2/)

We were received by Giampaolo Muliari, Director and Domenico Beccaria, President. We were overwhelmed by their passion for the history of this incredible club, but also (above all) their great stubbornness and professionalism in carrying on the Museum, a symbol of culture and sport.

History of our country far beyond the Granata colors and just football. Incredible if we think that the Museum is entirely managed by volunteers and an Association, without the help of major sponsors and, even more unheard of, without the support of the Torino FC. Probably the strength of this museum lies precisely in this particular, the mere gain at the expense of quality, which often distinguishes several museums managed directly by clubs.

The visit to the Museum was an unforgettable experience, with many exhibits covering over 100 years of history. Great emphasis on the period of the Grande Torino who disappeared in Superga (it couldn’t be otherwise), but a lot of pre-war material, from the 1960s in the memory of Gigi Meroni, from the last championship in 1976 to the present day. There are also references to the brotherhood teams and museums, Fiorentina and in particular River Plate and Benfica.

A visit to the Museum is a once in a lifetime experience. It doesn’t matter if you are a Torino fan or not, it doesn’t matter if you are interested in football or not. Treat yourself to a couple of hours of legend!

F as FARE (let’s do it!)

F like Figurine, F like Forever, F like Fairs, F like Faenza and Ferrara! Over the last two weekends we have been among the exhibitors of the first indoor fairs in the era of Covid, organized by MEI (Independent Label Meeting) for Faenza and Expo Fiere / Kolosseo for Ferrara.

F as FARE (do it), we found the (big) desire to meet, to visit, to browse, to exchange an opinion with new faces but who share your same passions, we have also seen a lot of seriousness and awareness in people.

Few, very few, practically no one walked without a mask WORN (no chin or elbow, it doesn’t work like this ..), great professionalism of the organization in knowing how to manage spaces and in the courage to get involved and start over. It confirms that the solution is not to stop entire sectors by killing the already weak economy, but to ask everyone for an uncommon commitment to achieve the goal.

The same thing that could very well be done with theaters, cinemas and concert halls, if only the opportunity were given.

We have just read that at the last second the ban on organizing fairs and congresses was canceled by the new DPCM (government decree), if this was made possible it is also thanks to the results obtained in Faenza, Ferrara and in other places where, with great difficulty, decided to leave.

We are there! And we’ll be there

IN STICKERS WE TRUST

FIGURINE FOREVER AT TORINO!

In the next few weeks we will be in Turin twice!

On Thursday 15 October, the 150 GIGI MERONI Celebratory Stickers will be delivered to the Grande Torino Museum (http://www.museodeltoro.it/), it will be a private meeting, in this period it is not possible to do otherwise, but it is for us an important and exciting moment, for a long time we desire to visit the Museum in Grugliasco.
On October 15, on the anniversary of the great champion’s death. We remind you that the 150 copies are a donation from the Figurine Forever Association to the Granata Historical Memory Association. We hope that the “granata” fans during the following visits will want to take home our small contribution and with that help the Museum in its important cultural activity.

Sunday 25 October we will return to Turin, in the very central PIAZZA MADAMA CRISTINA to participate in the traditional COMIC FAIR (https://kolosseo.com/), at our stand you will naturally find the Celebrative of Gigi Meroni but also all the others, the SolidAlbum and the binders with all the novelties in the stickers present on newsstands

IN STICKERS WE TRUST

FIGURINE FOREVER AT FERRARA!

The Association will be guest of the MAX MANGA space (https://www.maxmanga.it/) at the Ferrara Fair on 10 and 11 October 2020. Another great opportunity to meet again, buy our stickers, our SolidAlbum or maybe bring us your unused stickers and cards to donate to the Adotta Con La Figurina project

The Fair is organized by Expo Fiere (https://www.expofiere.net/)

IN STICKERS WE TRUST

FIGURINE FOREVER AT MEI2020!

We enthusiastically accepted the invitation from the MEI organization (Meeting of Independent Labels) to take part in their event. Since 25 years one of the most important events in the Italian music scene.

The Association will be present with its own stand at the Disco Fair, inside the Palazzo delle Esposizioni (FREE ENTRANCE). As always we will try to make our space variegated and colorful, it will in any case and above dedicated to our FanForever Cards which feature great names in Italian and international music.

In Faenza, in absolute preview, it will be possible to buy the brand new FanForever Cards of:

STEVE LEE (frontman of Gotthard, 10 years anniversary of his death)

SIMONE TOMASSINI (out these days with the new single)

you will also find the other cards already available:

BEPPE CARLETTI (Nomadi)

CISCO

OMAR PEDRINI

Omar Pedrini will take part in the MEI with the presentation of his new book and an electroacoustic live in the nearby Piazza del Popolo, a few hundred meters from the Palazzo delle Esposizioni.

See you at Faenza! IN STICKERS WE TRUST

LEAVE ZANIOLO TO THE CHILDREN!

The usual speculators (NO, you are not collectors) have led to the Zaniolo Calciatori 2018/19 sticker running out, thanks to continuous and daily multiple purchases of all the copies available in Panini.

We invite Panini to reprint it, because it is inconceivable that such a recent card runs out, people and children in particular must have the opportunity to complete the album.

PANINI, DO THE RIGHT THING

IN STICKERS WE TRUST

ANOTHER MIDFIELDER!

bank transfer sent to Madabimbi Onlus – 08 september 2020

We are happy to announce that we have reached another 300.00 euros, equal to the fee for making a new long-distance adoption in Madagascar. We are in the middle of midfield and above all, with 7 adoptions out of 11 already made, we have the very strong hope of completing the “team” by the end of 2020.
We have to thank all those who have made purchases, both of the stickers and loose cards, and of the SolidAlbum, and our stickers/card of “Cisco” Bellotti, Beppe Carletti, Dino Meneghin, connected to this campaign.

The raising of donations of stickers and cards continues (we have exceeded 300.000!), the project will continue in 2021 and in the following years.

IN STICKERS WE TRUST

BEPPE FOREVER the concert!

On Saturday 22 August, our Association was present at the NOMADI concert on Lake Iseo (Brescia). First official release of Beppe Carletti’s FanForever Card and an opportunity to deliver his “figurina” to the leader and founder of Nomadi.

The ritual photo was a unique emotion, as were their songs that have accompanied us for over 50 years. We promised ourselves to see each other more calmly in Reggio Emilia, we have some ideas and projects to involve the history of Nomadi in our editorial initiatives.

Beppe Carletti with our President

Not only that, we also had the opportunity to give a small gift to Massimo Vecchi, bassist and voice of Nomadi, a great fan of Torino FC. For him a copy of our Celebrative of the myth Gigi Meroni, very fresh off the press! In this way, even Par Condicio is safe

Massimo Vecchi, happy with our Gigi Meroni sticker

We would like to thank the Nomadi, in particular Beppe and Elisa, really friendly (we apologize again to them for not having brought with us the giant picture of Beppe, the fault of the emotion), also the organizers of the concert, really demanding in this very particular period.

The concert was one emotion after another, like the stickers, even Nomadi songs are full of memories, after all the band is practically the same age as the legendary Panini!

SOME PICS FROM THE GIG

P.S. if you are wondering why we chose this concert for the first release, maybe the photo below is enough for you! 🙂

IN STICKERS WE TRUST

300.000 THANKS!

Thanks to the latest stickers and cards cataloged, we have exceeded 300,000! Despite the period and the almost total lack of events, thanks to the many donations also by post, the number becomes bigger and bigger allowing us to prepare more and more SolidAlbum!

We remind you that 100% of the proceeds from all stickers and cards sold will go to the international fundraising campaign for long distance adoptions in Madagascar (https://figurineforever.com/adotta-con-la-figurina/#eng-lang)

The online list will be updated with all the material available from 27 August on the occasion of the opening of our stand at the Festa de l’Unità in Bologna (https://www.facebook.com/events/2738113666445613/ )

SYRIA FOREVER!

Syria, the tiger adopted by the Figurine Forever Association

Thanks to the sale of our SolidAlbum, dedicated to the world of nature and animals, we were able to reach the sum of 144.00 euros for a new long-distance adoption with the guests of the Center for the Protection of Exotic and Wild Fauna of Monte Adone (https://centrotutelafauna.org/)

Bank transfer sent to the Center for the Protection of Fauna

After the CICO chimpanzee, now it is the turn of SYRIA, a splendid Bengal tiger, a guest of the center since 2009, after being kidnapped from a kennel where she was kept in a small sunless cage.

We want to thank everyone who contributed to this important result, buying an album is also important! Here the link to the Solidalbums currently available ( https://figurineforever.com/2020/06/08/arrivano-i-solidalbum/)

IN STICKERS WE TRUST

WE HAVE THE 1st MIDFIELDER!

bank transfer to Madabimbi Onlus, 27 july 2020

We are happy to announce that we have reached € 300.00, equal to the quota for making another long distance adoptions in Madagascar.

We must thank all those who have made purchases of our stickers, cards and products; with 5 months more before end of year, achieving the goal to complete the “team” of 11 adoptions for 2020! The raising of donations of stickers and cards continues (we are so close to 300.000!), the project will continue in 2021 and in the following years.

IN STICKERS WE TRUST

CISCO FOREVER the concert!

Thursday, July 16, 2020, our President Emiliano Nanni, handed Stefano “Cisco” Bellotti the plaque (nr. 7) as honorary member of our Association. We thank him again for the time he dedicates to us and the concrete help in the project for Madagascar, both through the sale of his FanForever Card and by sharing some of his important contacts to expand the initiative.

The delivery took place before his concert at the Porta Pazienza in Bologna, the first concert with the band after the long lockdown phase. The photographer Anna Minguzzi was present and immortalized the evening in many beautiful images that we cannot fail to share. Thanks also to Anna for her work!

THE DELIVERY OF THE PLATE

CISCO LIVE!

IN STICKERS WE TRUST!

FanForever ON TOUR!

This weekend we will be on tour with our productions, thanks to the concerts of the “goal twins” Cisco and Pedrini!

Thu 16 july: CISCO at PORTA PAZIENZA, Bologna

Fri 17 july: OMAR PEDRINI at PINTUPI OPEN AIR, Paderno d’Adda

We will bring the FanForever Cards of the two artists with us, one of the last occasions to buy them before they are sold out. Remindi that the CISCO card is connected to the Madagascar project, while that of OMAR PEDRINI is in favor of Cassano d’Adda through the non-profit organization S’APRE

Of course we will also have the Celebrative Stickers already printed: Angelo Schiavio, Lev Yashin, Beppe Signori and Giacinto Facchetti.

IN STICKERS WE TRUST!

500 x CASSANO d’ADDA!

Thank to the first important contributions collected through the sale of the Celebrative Sticker by GIACINTO FACCHETTI and the FanForever Card by OMAR PEDRINI, we were able to make a first transfer of € 500.00 in favor of the Onlus S’APRE (https://www.s-apre.org/chi-siamo) for support to the Zappatoni hospital in Cassano d’Adda (Milan). Go on!

IN STICKERS WE TRUST

WE HAVE THE DEFENSE!

bank transfer to Madabimbi, 24 may 2020


I am happy to announce that we have reached € 600.00, equal to the quota for making two other long distance adoptions in Madagascar.

Having succeeded in this period is a source of great pride for us. We must thank all those who have made purchases, but above all Stefano “Cisco” Bellotti (€ 300.00 comes from the first sales of his FanForever Card) and Luca from the Edicola Birra Fumetteria, where our Association is located. The shop (edicola) remained open during the general closing period for Covid-19 and people were still able to go or send and have the material sent.

The important thing is not to forget who is less fortunate than us, he was before and will be even after this emergency. We already know that this sum of ours, although small, will be of great help in Madagascar to alleviate the many extra problems created by this health emergency.

Once the defense is complete, we hope to have the entire midfield by the end of the summer, so maybe to get to Christmas and give us the two adoptions, the forward players, to have the whole team!

Achieving the goal of 11 adoptions for 2020, in our small way, would be a great result almost like winning the Africa Cup! The raising of donations of stickers and cards continues (exceed 250.000!), the project will continue in 2021 and in the following years, hoping soon we can all find each other for a hug.

CISCO FOREVER!

(in picture: “our” Cisco while donating stickers before one of his concert)

Stefano “Cisco” Bellotti, singer and always advocate of many charitable and social initiatives, friend of our Association, has been nominated Honorary Member. We hope to be able to deliver the celebratory plaque to him in person as happened with Comaschi and Signori.

The numbering of honorary cards is not consequential, but linked to specific reasons. In the case of Cisco, the choice of the number 7 is linked precisely to the history of his nickname and his passion for football.

(in picture: the cover of his autobiography)

In fact, every time he played football with his friends as a boy, he wore a shirt number 7 with the inscription “San Francisco”, gradually worn to the point of leaving only the last five letters, precisely Cisco.

(on left Emiliano Nanni, on right Cisco)

Welcome Cisco! In stickers we trust

SOLIDALBUM!

Thanks to the many donated stickers, we have also managed to make complete sets (for others we are looking for empty albums, remember that it is also possible to donate albums to the project, not just the stickers) and so here is a new initiative: album + complete set of stickers to attach, the WHOLE SUM will be destined for our solidarity projects.

You can find solidAlbums at our headquarters, a nice idea for children and adults in this period and beyond. Here is the list (for some we have multiple copies, for other unique copies).

200.000 THANKS!

200,404!

We have exceeded 200,000 stickers and cards collected! We have taken the Frozen2 and Frozen2 Trading Cards from our headquarter, all the stickers and cards (1626) were donated to the project for Madagascar, they are no longer available for exchanges but only for sale.

Thanks to these albums, we have reached 200,404 cataloged cards / cards, a truly splendid result achieved in 8 months!

The sales service is suspended until the end of May, only then will we update the list of stickers online. 100% of what is collected will be used to support the long distance adoptions of the children of the Mondobimbi Tafita Village in Tulear, Madagascar

Thanks to everyone who helped reach 200,000 stickers!

IN STICKER WE TRUST

UNITED WE STAND!

Dear friends and members, we have decided to use this period to catalog all the stickers and cards donated for Madagascar that we had not yet had time to check, at the same time the warehouse is currently not accessible.

For this reason, until the date to be assigned, we suspend the sale of the single stickers and also the online catalog will be updated only once at the end of this procedure. Let’s say by the end of May.

Then we invite you to read this letter from our President:

“Nobody like us knows how to get up, when it seems over”

To those who in these days try to bring down the mood by writing against, to those who try to debase the commitment of the vast majority of a people who are at home, to those who use this period for personal or group revenge, to those who simply think of self.

We are a strange, unique people, we are a people who have known over the years and over the centuries how to get up in front of the difficulties and difficulties we have had many, we are a people of inventors, dreamers, players, mess makers but with a big heart.

It will be tough, tough, long, very long but it is our history, our victories as our defeats and our defects show us the way to go. The Earth has put us at a crossroads, today is the time to fight, tomorrow will be the time to start again, treasuring what happened.

Proud to be Italian, proud of my people.

WE HAVE THE CENTRAL DEFENDER!

I am happy to announce that we have reached a new quota of € 300.00 to make the third long distance adoption in Madagascar.

Having succeeded in this difficult period for everyone is a great satisfaction, as everything else, even our participation in events has waned. Better and more peaceful times will come, the important thing is not to forget who is less fortunate than us, he was before and will be even after this emergency.

We will use this period to try to catalog all the donated stickers not yet checked, at least those not yet present in the Association’s warehouse, given the impossibility of reaching it as long as the government’s right restrictions are active. When public events can start again, we will also have the opportunity to offer our “SOLIDALBUM”, the collection of stickers has allowed us to prepare complete sets of collections, so you can help us raise funds not only by purchasing specific stickers but having fun giving away or stick a complete album.

COVID-19 EMERGENCY


IMPORTANT MESSAGE COVID-19 EMERGENCY

dear friends and members, in our small way we want to follow the indications of the political and health institutions in charge, we must consider that the time to return to normal will not be short, we must make our small conscious contribution; have the peace of mind to face the period knowing that we will all be stronger than before. For this reason, we have decided to cancel all Figurine Day events until the summer. For our presence at events organized by others in the next three months (April 4/5 Bologna, April 25 Liège, April 25/26 Bologna, May 9/10 Milano Comics) we confirm it at least as long as the organizers themselves consider them confirmed and at least until, possibly , there were no limits to the movements of people beyond April 3 in our area.
The Association also needs not to go into economic difficulties, therefore the creation of new Celebrative Stickers, FanForever Cards, Monsters of Rock Cards, is postponed to a date to be destined.
Our office is still active at Edicola Birra Fumetteria and you can come and visit us every day!
As the international campaign for Madagascar continues, although with obvious difficulties
We will keep you posted! #nosurrender #instickerswetrust

THE 72 HOURS OF STICKER AT RIMINI COMIX 2020!

Figurine Forever at Rimini Comix 2020!

In collaboration with the Rimini kermesse, the most important Italian reality (and beyond) of summer 2020, we are preparing a great appointment dedicated to the world of stickers

An entire dedicated area will be set up with the presence of a swap area, events and many sellers to be able to complete your collections and search for the missing albums

Not only that, for the occasion a new Celebrative Sticker will be created on a great champion of European football, a name so big as to be afraid to say it (and in fact for now we do not do it, also for superstition ). A meeting on football and stickers (one of our “Figurine Story”) will be held where we are trying to involve some big names in European football, hopefully!

We always say it, the stickers are not just football, in collaboration with MaxManga’s friends we are also putting in place some ideas on the albums of the past related to cartoons, TV series etc.

So many ideas, one certainty: we will do everything possible to entertain you!

IN STICKERS WE TRUST

IN SUPPORT OF THE WILDLIFE PROTECTION CENTER

Once again we want to use the great potential of the stickers to help those who need them, alongside our project in favor of long distance adoptions in Madagascar, supporting this important Italian reality.

The Exotic and Wild Wildlife Protection Center of Monte Adone (Sasso Marconi, Bologna) represents a stable point of reference for citizens, public bodies, police forces and firefighters; it operates 24 hours a day, every day of the year, in the recovery of indigenous and exotic fauna found injured, in difficulty and / or seized by the judicial authorities for ill-treatment, illegal trade and detention.

The idea is simple, through the great availability and sensitivity of the historic Fol.Bo. editions. we have collected 18 albums dedicated to our animal friends, the amazing ANIMALS IN THE WORLD and the nice and funny BABY ANIMALS.

The albums are available for a lump sum of € 30.00 each, they are EMPTY albums with in addition ALL the stickers to stick. 100% of what is collected will be used to support the center’s activities, specifically the goal is therefore to collect € 540.00 equal to the contribution for three chimpanzees hosted in the center for the year 2020.

We are one-third of the way away because during our meeting on 11 January at Estragon we reached the first contribution of 180.00 euros which was promptly sent to the Center.

Help us to reach the purpose!

Helping while having fun, attaching stickers, an activity that we at Figurine Forever know very well!

We are happy and satisfied to announce the first results achieved in favor of our solidarity initiatives!

WE HAVE THE GOALKEEPER! Thanks to the first contributions through the sold stickers, we reached the sum for the first distance adoption of the 11 (minimum) planned in favor of the Tafita Village of Tulear, Madagascar



Bank transfer to Monte Adone

Thanks to the sale of albums of stickers on animals (100% destined for the project), we reached € 180 and achieved support for one year in favor of one of the chimpanzees hosted by the Exotic and Wild Fauna Protection and Research Center – Monte Adone Now on to reach the three chimpanzee target for 2020

In stickers we trust (and thanks to all!)

NEW BOARD ASSOCIATION

After the Figurine Forever 3 event, by mutual agreement, the Figurine Forever Association and Gianni Bellini have decided to continue separately.

This does not mean the termination of relationships or any other reason that can be hypothesized, quite simply the Association’s priority has moved away from the initial idea of ​​dedicating itself mainly to the Football Stickers Museum.

The commitment in the field of solidarity and in particular of the project for Madagascar, takes too much time to manage in the best way an equally important project such as that of the (future, hope is always the same) Museum of the History of Football through stickers .

There will certainly be a thousand opportunities to meet and collaborate again, so don’t despair!

Based on what has been written, the Figurine Forever Association will announce the new board and the consequent new appointment of Vice President as soon as possible.

In Stickers We Trust (never doubts about this)

KOALA FOREVER!

Our Association has joined the WWF campaign to safeguard the Australian Koalas, a small contribution within everyone’s reach and also a useful gift for Christmas, given the opportunity to also receive the peluche mascot of the international campaign. Peluche that will also keep us company at our gathering on 11 January 2020 in Bologna.

An association dedicated to stickers has a special relationship with Koalas, as you can see in the photo, the most famous album on animals in Italy is this from 1950 (later reissued on various occasions) created by Lampo and that precisely sees our little friends in cover.

For 1950 children they were exotic animals impossible to see live, for 2020 children they risk being animals of the past, due to the real risk of extinction.

GIORGIO COMASCHI FOREVER!

on left Giorgio Comaschi, on right our president Emiliano Nanni

Giorgio Comaschi, actor, journalist and much more, a long-time friend of our Association, the protagonist of our annual gathering, was the first to whom we presented the honorary member’s commemorative plaque.

The numbering of honorary cards is not consequential, but linked to specific reasons. In the case of Giorgio the choice of number 8 is a tribute to a great friend of him and a great Italian football player: Giacomo Bulgarelli, number 8 was his shirt with which he played for Bologna so many years.

As we said to Giorgio, he is now tied to us forever 🙂
