Celebrative Sticker #42: EUGENIO BERSELLINI!

The collection of solidarity stickers is enriched by a new, fundamental role in the world of sport, the coach. Celebrative Sticker #42 is dedicated to Eugenio Bersellini.

Eugenio Bersellini, born in 1936, a former footballer from Brescia and Monza, owes his nickname “Iron Sergeant” to the harsh training methods. The Emilian coach also knew how to give moments of joy and tenderness, among friends, family and with his players. Even with the fans who have not forgotten him, especially for the decade that began with Sampdoria in 1975/76, then at Inter where in 5 years he will win the 1979/1980 Scudetto and two Italian Cups, followed by two years at Turin where he was the coach of the immortal 3-2 comeback in the derby against Juventus, to then return to Genoa and win the Sampdoria club’s first trophy: the 1984/85 Italian Cup.

For this reason, this solidarity sticker was created with 3 variants that could cover the unforgettable years, it is impossible to choose just one club, every football fan can decide which of the three stickers to have in his folder.

1979/80, Bersellini’s Inter ran towards the conquest of the Scudetto from the first matchday. A linear path, made even more exciting by the two championship derbies won and the poker trimmed to Juventus thanks to Altobelli’s hat-trick. Inter’s top scorer in the league is Alessandro Altobelli, with 15 goals. Evaristo Beccalossi made 7 of them, two of which in the derby against Milan. It’s a beautiful Inter and loved by Inter fans, Bersellini will stay at Inter for 5 seasons.

Coach of Toro for two seasons, from 1982 to 1984. strongly desired by the then President Sergio Rossi. In the first season, the date of March 27, 1983 is unforgettable. In the return derby Torino, down by two goals, recovered and overcame Juventus in three minutes, which fielded five World Champions as well as Platini and Boniek. Bonesso, Dossena and Torrisi, scorers of the three goals, send the grenade part of the Stadio Comunale to heaven.

Bersellini returns to Genoa after having already coached Sampdoria in the second half of the 1970s. With the trainer comes the first trophy of the Sampdoria club, the Italian Cup won in Marassi against Milan on 3 July 1985 and the same year in the championship he finishes in fourth place. These are the first steps of a team that will be the absolute protagonist in the 80s until the Scudetto with Boskov on the bench in 1990/91.

We thank the Bersellini family for having authorized and supported our initiative.

Celebrative Sticker #38: ANDREA LANFRI!

Who knows what it’s like to see the world from the top of Everest. The Celebrative Sticker #38 solidarity sticker is dedicated to Andrea Lanfri. Born in Lucca, in life he has always had a passion for school, sport and the mountains. In 2015, fulminant meningitis with meningococcal sepsis took away both of his legs, and seven fingers on his hands.

Andrea from this traumatic “experience” was able to find incredible strength of mind and spirit, in the stubborn awareness that his dreams had only suffered a setback. That the sky was still possible to touch, with a finger.

After a long and painful period, Lanfri, thanks to crowdfunding, can begin his new life path as an established sportsman. He enters the Paralympic national running team, wins 9 Italian titles in two years. He won the silver medal in the 4×100m relay at the 2017 World Championships, one silver and two bronze medals at the European Championships. The biggest regret is not being called up for the Rio Olympics despite having achieved the necessary results.

However, Andrea’s real journey has yet to begin. The initial idea of ​​this Celebrative Sticker was to remember a Paralympic athlete, perhaps it will happen in the future, but it is the charm of the mountain, of its peaks that directs the project towards the incredible objectives achieved.

Mountaineering is a sport! To remove any doubts is his presence in the legendary albums “Campioni dello Sport” of the 60s that opened those pages where the myth crossed the legend. Andrea’s climb begins in 2018 with Monte Rosa, from 2019 to 2021 he reaches some of the most exciting peaks in the world on different continents. In 2022 it’s time to climb Everest, on May 13 Andrea reaches the summit at 8,849 meters. becoming the first man to climb the roof of the world with multiple amputations.

As an incredible interlude, before starting the ascent Andrea, in the village of Gorakshep, on April 1st sets a Guinness World Record, running the fastest mile with blades at an altitude of 5 164m, 9 minutes and 48 seconds.

Andrea Lanfri is a symbol of the fortitude of how much one can overturn the “plans of destiny” and rebuild them in one’s own image. Andrea is not a superhero, he is an example, a sportsman, a man.

ANDREA FOR THE “ADOTTA CON LA FIGURINA” PROJECT!

The entire proceeds from the sale of this Celebrative Sticker will be used to support the “Adotta con la Figurina – Sticker raising for Solidarity” project where our association annually engages in different solidarity projects, in Madagascar, Bosnia, Argentina and Italy.

Celebrative Sticker #37: FEDERICO PISANI!

Chicco and Ale Forever! Federico Pisani is a great promise of Italian football, born in Lucca, he arrives at Atalanta very young. It seems like a story with a happy ending, but the adverse “destiny” thinks otherwise. On 12 February 1997 Federico and his girlfriend Alessandra Midali lost their lives in a tragic road accident. Chicco is just 22 years old, Alessandra 20. Bergamo have never forgotten them, the Celebrative Sticker #37 is in their memory.

Born in Castelnuovo di Garfagnana but lived in Capannori, as confirmed by his mother Rosanna, Federico moved to Bergamo when he was just 15 years old. In its sporting history he had important coaches (Lippi, Mondonico, Prandelli) and has played alongside Italian soccer stars such as Filippo Inzaghi, Vieri and Tacchinardi.

It is the Atalanta of miracles, the one with the most important youth organization in Italy. He also demonstrates it on the field and Federico Pisani is among the protagonists, in 1992/93 the Primavera team wins the championship and the Viareggio tournament. The solidarity sticker wants to remember that triumphant season.

He made his debut in Serie A when he was just 17, the club relegated to Serie B but thanks also to his plays, the Bergamo team immediately returned to Serie A. This was followed by four goals in the top division in the 1995/96 season. Due to an injury, his appearances on the field were stopped, but at the beginning of 1997 he returned to the field in a journey to bring him back to the best of form. Unfortunately, Atalanta-Verona on 5 January 1997 will be his last match.

Federico’s plays are a pleasure for the eyes, the fans love him. The number 14 shirt becomes a symbol of being Atalanta. It will remain like this forever, after Federico’s death it is withdrawn and the Curva Nord of the stadium is dedicated to him, among the ultras who have always supported him and subsequently never forgotten. The decision to print 114 copies is a small tribute, due, to the Atalanta champion.

The solidarity sticker was made possible thanks to the collaboration and availability of the Midali and Pisani families.

Celebrative Sticker #36: CARLO CASTELLANI!

Many have heard on the radio or television “let’s take the line from the Castellani stadium in Empoli ..” without knowing who the person after whom the Tuscan city named the stadium was. Around Italy there are sports facilities that with their name want to remember stories and characters that must not be forgotten.

What happened many years ago is still fresh in mind, not only in Empoli. The name Carlo Castellani is indelible, the project of this solidarity sticker has two purposes: to pay homage to those who have never forgotten it, to restore strength to the historical memory of those who still do not know the life and tragedy of this champion.

The Celebrative Sticker #36 is Carlo Castellani, born in Montelupo Fiorentino on January 15, 1909, died in Gusen on August 11, 1944. In between, a lot of football played, many goals scored with his Empoli, the Tuscan club’s absolute best scorer for over 70 years . The record will be surpassed only by Francesco “Ciccio” Tavano in 2011.

In the dark years of the war and the regime, although his family is anti-fascist, Carlo doesn’t get involved in politics. On the night of 8 March 1944, the carabinieri and the hierarch knock on the door of the Castellani house to take away his father David, who however is ill. Carlo decides to take his place, without resisting for fear of retaliation against his family.

Carlo is taken to Florence. From platform 6 of the Santa Maria Novella station he is loaded onto a train for Germany, crammed with hundreds of other deportees and deportees, some will die along the way, he arrives days later at the Mauthausen concentration camp.

Carlo Castellani, physically and mentally exhausted, died on 11 August 1944.

This solidarity stickers was made possible thanks to the collaboration with Aned – National Association of Former Deportees in Nazi Camps, in particular the sections of Empoli, Florence and Bologna. It is sponsored by the Municipality of Empoli and the Municipality of Montelupo Fiorentino and is created in collaboration with the Empoli Football Club which allowed the official logo of the white-blue club to be inserted.

Special thanks to Franco Castellani, Carlo’s son, for sharing memories, letters, photos. Of these photos, only a few but significant ones have given life to a folder that acts as a splendid frame for a figurine that will remain over time. To never forget.

The Celebrative Sticker #36 solidarity sticker will be presented on Friday 3 March 2023, at 4.30 pm in the Press Room of Empoli FC at the Carlo Castellani Stadium.

TOGETHER for ANED!

With the proceeds of this new solidarity sticker + folder, it will be possible to support the activities of ANED the National Association Ex Deported in the nazi camps (http://www.deportati.it/?lang=en); we strongly feel the need to keep the memory of what happened alive and daily, because it should never happen again. 150 of the numbered version and 50 of the unnumbered version were donated to Aned Empoli as our support to this important reality, for a total value of 1,000 euros

We want to remember Vittorio Staccione both for the great man, persecuted, that he was, and for the great footballer, as the facts say, that he was.

Celebrative Sticker #35: OSCAR SCHMIDT!

“and with the number 18..”. Brazil is not only the land of great football, there are other sports where great champions have been able to make a difference. Absolute myths for their country but also for the city and fans of a particular team for which they are a symbol, forever (“forever” as we like it). Caserta has never forgotten it, the Celebrative Sticker #35 is dedicated to Oscar Schmidt!

Oscar participated in 5 Olympic Games, holding records of both appearances and points scored, his love for Brazil is exemplary, in an interview he declared that he did not go to play in the NBA because then the US professional players could not participate in the commitments of the national team. USA basketball, in 2013, included him in the Hall of Fame.

As written on our celebratory card, Oscar’s period at Juvecaserta went from 1982 to 1990, almost 300 games played, almost 10,000 points scored. Legendary numbers. With the Brazilian champion, the team from region Campania makes the leap in quality in Italy and Europe, ironically the historic Scudetto in Caserta will arrive only the following year (after 2 lost finals in the 80s), but we are convinced that Oscar too, in the previous years, had contributed well to creating the foundations of the dreamed of triumph.

Oscar Bezerra Schmidt completes a special trilogy of great basketball champions celebrated with our solidarity stickers, touching Italy from north to south: Milan and Varese (Dino Meneghin), Bologna (Gary “Baron” Schull) and now Caserta, the myth of basketball in stickers. More and more hot spots of Italian basketball will arrive where we will go to celebrate them, of course.

The solidarity sticker was made possible thanks to the collaboration with the Municipality of Caserta and some Juvecaserta fans, essential for getting in touch with the great champion.

OSCAR SCHMIDT for “L’ANGELO DEGLI ULTIMI” – CASERTA!

The proceeds will be donated to L’Angelo degli Ultimi” (https://www.langelodegliultimi.org/), an important reality in the field of volunteering at Caserta

Raised in Pisa, his city, “the captain” plays in various teams, Roma, Parma, Livorno, Ternana, to arrive in 1988 in the red and blue Genoa. Here he knows the most epic and important moments of his competitive career, the first year he conquers Serie A, in the following years the Grifone makes history and leaves his mark in Italy as in Europe, with the semi-final reached in the UEFA Cup in the 1991-92 season, with the memorable victory at Anfield Road at Liverpool.

Gianluca, a man with a pure heart, will leave Genoa in 1995 only to return to his native Pisa and help bring the Tuscan club back into the professional ranks after the bankruptcy of 2 years earlier.

Gianluca Signorini passed away at the age of only 42, on November 6, 2002, due to ALS; in reality he is still here with us, Genoans, Pisans, football lovers and the stories of sport and life that intertwine. Gianluca is present in the heart of football lovers, Signorini is forever.

The solidarity sticker Celebrative Sticker #34 was created in collaboration and in support of the Museum of the History of Genoa and follows the Celebrative Sticker #16 by Giovanni De Prà. 80 copies of the sticker will be donated to the Museum in order to support its important cultural activity and sports history.

We want to thank Benedetta Signorini for her willingness to approve our initiative which aims to keep alive the historical and sporting memory of a great champion, immortal for so many of us.

The presentation of the solidarity sticker will be in Genoa, on Saturday 28 January 2023, at 10.30, at the Museum of the History of Genoa. The event is open to the public.

Celebrative Sticker #32: CARLO NERVO!

Our Association is based in Bologna and Bologna is our city. In reality it is almost a coincidence but several changes in the setting of our solidarity stickers are linked to the red and blue colors: Angelo Schiavo was the first Celebrative Sticker, Eneas De Camargo was the first Celebrative with the new graphic setting, now Carlo Nervo, Celebrative Sticker #32, is the first with a limited and numbered edition always fixed (except in rare cases) at 100 copies and an unnumbered parallel edition, defined as standard, which in case of need it will be possible to print other copies.

This solidarity sticker comes from a collaboration with the Forever Ultras of Bologna football club. The historic group of the Curva Bulgarelli has offered us to pay homage to a footballer who is their idol and flag. For them as for all Bologna FC fans. Carlo Nervo played over 10 years in the Bologna club, experiencing epic moments and less happy moments but always with Bologna in his heart.

The number 7 of Bologna, thanks to his performances in the team, was also able to wear the national team shirt. For this reason, we thought it was a duty as well as a pleasure to also include a photo in “Azzurro” in a sticker and folder completely dedicated to the red and blue colours.

The contribution of Lamberto Bertozzi, one of the most important collectors of relics and memorabilia of the BFC1909 was fundamental. He provided us with the necessary photos, thanks to the great archive work he carries out with the Bologna Calcio Museum, for now only available virtually (https://www.museobolognacalcio.it/wp/).

The proceeds will be donated to the CiviBo Onlus (http://www.civibo.it/), an important reality in the field of volunteering

Celebrative Sticker #31: FORTITUDO WHITE SOX!

There are sports stories that it is a pleasure to make known, tell, remember, celebrate. They are not always stories of a single athlete, it would not be enough, sometimes there is an entire team to be the center of attention. An important story of champions in sport and in some way also in life. The Celebrative Sticker #31 is dedicated to the Fortitudo Bologna White Sox!

We often write it, the primary purpose of our project, even before that of fundraising (always important anyway) is to use the charm of “figurine” to tell stories, about sport and often much more, in this series. Sometimes it happens on the contrary, we are the first to come into contact with realities and events we did not know, remaining struck and attracted by them. Perfect and meaningful to make them a solidarity sticker.

The Fortitudo Bologna White Sox are Italy’s champion team in Baseball for the Blind. The team is made up of blind, visually impaired and sighted players, needed to coordinate some game actions. We have tried to convey the idea of ​​the speed, precision and potential of the players inside the folder, in the splendid photos (thanks again to the availability of Giovanni Pini of nonsolovolley.it), the invitation that all we do is to go and watch the sport live.

Baseball for the blind has different rules from the classic one, for example the role of the pitcher does not exist; the hitter, in the attack phase, uses the bat to hit from below, throwing the ball. Sight prompters are provided both in attack and defense, which help blind people to orient themselves better. The ball releases a sound that helps athletes understand its direction.

The photo of the sticker, taken like the others at the final in Milan, celebrates the second consecutive Scudetto. White Sox that not only in Italy but also in Europe and the Americas had the opportunity to compete with other teams, waiting, who knows, to one day have this discipline at the Paralympic Games. Less simple than one might think, also considering how little traditional baseball is considered by the IOC.

FIGURINE FOREVER for WHITE SOX!

The entire proceeds from the sale of this Celebrative Sticker will be used to support the team and help raise awareness of the unique and incredible reality of Baseball for the Blind.

Celebrative Sticker #30: CHRIS AMON!

Motors forever! Finally our collection of solidarity stickers is enriched with the first one dedicated to the world of engines and never could have been more appropriate choice. In the spirit of our productions that often tell of great champions but also and above all of great sports stories. Celebrative Sticker # 30 is dedicated to Chris Amon!

Chris Amon was a great pilot at the turn of the 60s and 70s, talented and famous despite never having managed to win a race in F1 and certainly not out of demerit because the New Zealander was really strong. Did bad luck have a hand? Maybe yes maybe no. Certainly if you are passionate about motoring and do not know its history correct to discover it, in it you will find all the charm and the myth of four-wheel racing.

Beyond F1, the driver chosen and loved by Enzo Ferrari himself has been able to leave his mark in great classics such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans and above all the 24 Hours of Daytona. Here, in 1967, his contribution to the victory of the Italian team was fundamental.

Our solidarity sticker is inspired by the very interesting book written by Emiliano Tozzi and the photos used are those of the photographer Marco Valentini, mainly relating to the period of the early 1970s. So you will forgive us if we used a photograph for the sticker actually after that incredible 1967 and the triumph of Daytona, but the photo was too suggestive to use another one.

CHRIS AMON for MADAGASCAR!

The proceeds will be entirely donated to the ADOTTA CON LA FIGURINA initiative to support long distance adoptions in Madagascar.

Celebrative Sticker #29: CARLO PEDERSOLI!

Bud Forever! The Celebrative Sticker series deals with paying homage, remembering, celebrating the great champions and personalities of sport. It may happen, as in this case, that a great athlete then becomes even more famous by making a different choice in his professional life. Before becoming Bud Spencer, the actor we all love, Italy had an enormously talented swimmer. With immense pleasure, pride and a certain amount of emotion, the Celebrative Sticker # 29 solidarity sticker is dedicated to Carlo Pedersoli!

Carlo Pedersoli’s sporting career is a succession of great successes in both swimming and water polo. He was the first Italian to go under one minute in the 100m freestyle race, of which he was national champion 7 times. He took part in two Olympics arriving in the semifinals, silver medal at the 1951 Mediterranean Games. With water polo, which he was involved in “occasionally”, he won the gold medal with the blue colors at the 1955 Mediterranean Games.

At the end of the 50s, the future Bud makes the choice to move to South America and somehow gives up his sporting career. Although, having returned to Rome years later, he was called up by the national swimming team to participate in the 1960 Rome Olympics, but without taking part in it; “He should have taken part in it but he preferred to get married that year”, this is the answer given to us by his daughter Cristiana (in the photo below), who clarifies an often incongruent datum found on the internet with respect to Olympic participation.

This whole part of Carlo Pedersoli’s life is also well told in the graphic novel “Bud Spencer” drawn by Roberto Lauciello based on a screenplay by Marco Sonseri (Renoir Comics, 2021), which was very useful in putting us in contact with the Pedersoli family and who have already participated in our solidarity stickers project with the Comic Card # 17 dedicated to Bud Spencer.

In the Celebrative Sticker solidarity sticker we therefore dedicated ourselves to paying homage to a sporting career, sometimes not remembered enough given the greatness of the actor, an authentic legend. The sticker recalls Carlo Pedersoli’s first Olympics, in Helsinki in 1952. However, in the folder we also wanted to remember the man and therefore we have included a wonderful photo of Bud walking around Rome and on the back showing a photo of him as an athlete.

We are convinced that the two aspects of Bud / Carlo’s life are one, important and memorable and therefore both to be celebrated and remembered. As well as his love for Naples and the sea. For this reason, even this second solidarity sticker by Bud Spencer is in support of the Onlus Maestri di Strada of the Neapolitan city, maybe it will also help the young people followed by the organization to get to know this famous fellow citizen beyond the many films they have seen on television.

263 limited and numbered copies, 2 like the Olympics in which he took part, 63 like the famous jersey number he wears in the film “They called him Bulldozer“. The sticker will be previewed in Naples on Thursday 22 September at the Maestri di Strada headquarters, then you can find it in three important events in which Figurine Forever will take part:

Music Day + Figucon, Roma 24-25 september 2022 (63 copies available)
MEI Meeting Etichette Indipendenti, Faenza 1-2 october 2022 (50 copies available)
Fiera del Fumetto Kolosseo, Bologna 15-16 october 2022 (50 copies available)

100 copies will be available for sale online on our site, to these will be added any unsold copies from the three events reported above. We will gradually update the site with copies still available.

BUD SPENCER for MAESTRI DI STRADA!

With the proceeds of this new solidarity sticker + folder, it will be possible to support the activities of the non-profit organization MAESTRI DI STRADA (https://www.maestridistrada.it/), splendid reality deeply rooted in the territory of Naples and to which, in agreement with the Pedersoli family, the proceeds are destined.

Celebrative Sticker #28: PAOLO PULICI!

Pupi forever! The marvellous collaboration with the Museo del Grande Torino continues, celebrating the great champions who wore the legendary “Granata” jersey, leaving their mark. Great captains, great defenders, great hearts, great strikers. The greatest was he, the player with the most goals in the history of Torino FC. As lovers of football and good football stories, we are happy to announce that the Celebrative Sticker # 28 is dedicated to Paolino Pulici!

Paolo or Paolino Pulici makes little difference, for everyone it was Pupi. Able to score 172 goals with the Torino shirt, a record still unbeaten. The pair of goals of wonders together with Ciccio Graziani who will make a great contribution to winning the championship in the 1975/76 season.

Torino fans and all lovers of glorious football teams hope that one day another Scudetto will arrive and who knows another goalscorer, perhaps even more prolific than Pulici, but this would not affect the undisputed love that the people have grenade for one of their warriors.

80 copies of the 172 printed will be donated to the Museum for sale directly at their place, in order to support the museum and cultural activities of a reality that the whole world envies us (https://www.museodeltoro.it/)

Celebrative Sticker #27: GINO BARTALI!

Here you enter the legend! Perhaps even more than football, especially when thinking about the 1900s, it is cycling that has given us the most beautiful, most intense stories of men who have excited a country and who have sometimes divided it or who knows, as some hypothesize, even saved.

Words will never be enough to tell our emotion, joy, satisfaction in being able to pay homage to one of the greatest Italian athletes of all time, one of the greatest cyclists in the world. The Celebrative Sticker # 27 is Gino Bartali!

A great man, also remembered for his human commitment in helping Italian Jews to escape the Nazi-fascist ferocity, an incredible sportsman who has traveled over twenty years at the highest levels, despite the Second World War which caused all competitions to be suspended . Among his many triumphs we wanted to remember perhaps the most famous one, which has become legendary. The victory at the 1948 Tour De France, in the collective imagination, which mixes with myth and legend, is what saved us from a possible civil war after the non-fatal attack on Palmiro Togliatti.

For this reason, the solidarity sticker will be presented in Florence on Friday 15 July at the Bartali Cycling Museum. Exactly 74 years after the famous victory in the Cannes-Briancon leg, the day after the attack on the Secretary of the Italian Communist Party, which took place on 14 July 1948. The particular numbered and limited edition of the solidarity sticker, as often happens with our productions, instead it wants to be a reminder of Gino’s first important victory, the “Coppa Bologna” in 1934, although it is a race that took place in Siena, but we still liked the idea.

We want to thank the Bartali family, Luigi, Bianca Maria, Gioia and Stella with the rest of the family who approved and made possible this project, born to remember Gino Bartali but also to support those who, in the name of ” Ginetaccio ”continues to carry forward the historical memory, the Museum of Cycling – Gino Bartali in Florence.

FOR THE MUSEUM OF CYCLING!

150 copies of the 234 printed will be donated to the Museum for sale directly at their place, in order to support the museum and cultural activities (https://www.ciclomuseo-bartali.it/)

Celebrative Sticker #26: KATIA SERRA!

Katia forever! For a long time we have had the desire to create a sticker dedicated to women’s football, a discipline that is on the rise thanks to the entry of the most important clubs in Italian football, but also, we like to think so, especially for the exciting results of the national team. We are happy and proud to announce that the Celebrative Sticker # 26 is dedicated to Katia Serra!

Our will is to create others in the future, that Katia is the first is not only a pleasure but also to give credit to this player, from Bologna like us, who has been fighting for many years so that women’s football is recognized the right value, both sporty and professional.

Katia was the first on several occasions, the last, unforgettable, as a commentator in the commentary of the Euro 2021 Wembley final for RAI which will see the men’s national team win on penalties against the hosts.

They are two important stories but part of a single big heart and strong passion, which is why in the folder we wanted to celebrate Serra both as a footballer and as the protagonist of our television. The photos cover a good part of his long football career, starting with his debut with his hometown team, Bologna. The edition of the folder, 109 copies, is a small reference to the year the BFC was founded, 1909.

Even the sticker, as always, is not causal. Precisely in the year of the women’s Europeans in England, we want to remember the edition always played in the British country, in 2005, where Italy participated thanks to the victory in the qualifiers, with Katia present on the field, but who due to an injury did not saw her leave for Preston. The blues returned home with three defeats (with France, Germany and Norway), we like to think, let’s say dreaming, that with Serra also on the field things might have gone differently.

The solidarity sticker of Katia Serra will be presented at the eighth edition of FIGUCON, at the Pontelungo Summer Fest, Bologna.

KATIA SERRA for MADAGASCAR!

The proceeds will be entirely donated to the ADOTTA CON LA FIGURINA initiative to support long distance adoptions in Madagascar.

Celebrative Sticker #25: CONCETTO LO BELLO!

Lo Bello forever! In our series of solidarity stickers we have given space to great footballers, great sportsmen, great sports stories, an iconic president like Renato Dall’Ara, now it’s time to pay homage to the Referee, perhaps the greatest of all time, at least in Italy. The Celebrative Sticker # 25 is dedicated to Concetto Lo Bello.

Concetto Lo Bello was an icon, they were also inspired by him in film productions, if the youngest can think of Collina, all previous generations have lived in the myth of the great Sicilian referee, some fans may have unpleasant memories, because in football only one team wins, but it is undeniable that referees are a fundamental part of football and Concetto was more than others, perhaps all the other referees.

In the sticker we wanted to emphasize his period as referee in Serie A and internationally, 20 years at a great level, in reality, Concetto Lo Bello continued even later, dedicating himself to water polo, his great love. The photos in the folder recalls historical moments, the first and last match (the one where we see De Sisti, our other solidarity card) and also the opportunity to referee assisted by his son Rosario.

The solidarity sticker was presented and distributed to the large audience (referees, former footballers, big names in sport and journalism, exponents of political and sports institutions) on 12 May 2022, in the splendid setting of the Auditorium of the Federal Technical Center of Coverciano, where our President was able to personally deliver copies of his father’s solidarity card to Rosario Lo Bello. A surprise, organized by Giglio Amico, as the family had not been informed of the initiative before. Her emotion in receiving the solidarity card made us proud of what was done, an alternative way by Figurine Forever to support the activities of the Florentine non-profit organization Giglio Amico.

Celebrative Sticker #24: RUGGERO BAGIALEMANI!

Ruggero Forever! Baseball is a marvelllous sport, if we were in the US some of our champions would be absolute myths, highly sought after even in stickers. In Italy it is different, but a champion is a champion and we are happy to make the second solidarity card dedicated to Baseball. After Alberto “Toro” Rinaldi, the Celebrative Sticker # 24 is the symbol of Nettuno and the Italian national team, Ruggero Bagialemani.

The two champions also have in common the jersey number, the number 20, which no one else will be able to wear because their respective clubs, Fortitudo for Toro and Nettuno for Ruggero have withdrawn it. Not only that, Ruggero declared that the choice of that number is precisely to pay tribute to the great Rinaldi. Now the two champions not only share the jersey number, but both be a Celebrative Sticker!

Not just Nettuno! Ruggero Bagialemani is also a record man for the Italian national team, he has participated in 3 Olympics and 7 world championships. The solidarity card wants to celebrate both his long career in the club of the city near Rome, but also the charm of this incredible sport. For this reason, the printing is 108 copies, like the seams on a baseball. A number that will also remain in the future solidarity cards we will make for baseball, after all, as they say, there is no 2 without 3.

Fundamental partner to create this new solidarity card, was Il Bar del Baseball, the most important reality for all fans in Italy. While waiting for the dream of a Baseball Museum in Nettuno to become a reality, a place to visit, the work they carry out is commendable.

Baseball and the city of Nettuno are one, for the first time our solidarity card has the honor (but also the burden) of being sponsored by a public institution. Thanks to the Municipality and also to the Pro Loco di Nettuno for having joined and supported our initiative.

The Celebrative was created by directly involving the champion who enthusiastically supported our initiative. The proceeds will be entirely donated to the ADOTTA CON LA FIGURINA – STICKER RAISING FOR SOLIDARITY https://figurineforever.com/en/sticker-raising/

Celebrative Sticker #23: BRUNO NERI!

Bruno Neri Forever! Exactly one year ago we presented the Celebrative Sticker # 10 dedicated to the partisan footballer, the initiative met with incredible enthusiasm, so much so that the 99 copies of the solidarity sticker sold out in a very short time.

From many sides they asked us for a reprint, but our solidarity stickers do not provide for it, so we made an appointment for 2022. The footballer, who died partisan on 10 July 1944, during a firefight with the Nazis, made famous by a famous photograph that he portrays him at the Florence Stadium, in 1931, while he does not pay homage to the fascist hierarchs.

If the first sticker was a “what if”, imagining Neri as the footballer of the 1938 world champion national team, this time we have traveled a good part of his sporting life, celebrating not only the man but also his city, Faenza, which gave him entitled the stadium and a plaque where he lived, which we decided to add to the folder.

For these reasons the stickers of Bruno Neri are:
. in his last season, as a player at Faenza, printed in 99 copies
. with the Fiorentina shirt in the 1931/32 season, printed in 50 copies
. with the FC Torino shirt in the 1938/39 season, printed in 50 copies, where the player from Romagna scores his only goal with the grenade shirt and it is also the season before the outbreak of the Second World War.

In the folder there is also a large image with the Torino shirt. Some photos are the same as the first solidarity sticker, unfortunately there is very little photographic material on Bruno Neri, but the colors of his shirts are updated, especially that of Fiorentina where he does not make the fascist salute. In the Celebrative Sticker # 10 he wore the blue shirt, in this the most real purple shirt, the same colors of that day.

Finally, we also wanted to celebrate the other Neri of Faenza, Giacomo, six years younger than Bruno, a footballer for Juventus, Genoa and Inter and also for the national team. The photo shows them together, Neri I and Neri II, two very different stories but both of which have brought the white and blue colors of their city to their hearts.

We recently remembered Vittorio Staccione, a footballer deported and killed in Mauthausen, Bruno Neri’s teammate in Florence, both players of Turin but at different times. The “legend” tells that they were friends, they certainly shared the same negative sentiment towards ideology and even more so about fascist practices.

BRUNO NERI for MADAGASCAR!

The proceeds will be entirely donated to the ADOTTA CON LA FIGURINA initiative to support long distance adoptions in Madagascar.

Celebrative Sticker #22: LUIGI SAMELE!

Fencing forever! Italy is not only one of the homelands of football, fencing is a sport we have had incredible results over the years, creating a real movement of fans and many practitioners.

We are happy to finally be able to pay homage to this splendid discipline and do so with an adopted Bolognese, silver medalist at the Tokyo 2021 Olympics, five-time European champion. The solidarity Celebrative Sticker # 22 is, like the previous one by Olga Kharlan, dedicated to fencing and Luigi Samele!

In this difficult time for Peace, Luigi and Olga are a beautiful couple in life who can help get the right messages through sport. Winning and fighting on the platform, loyally and as athletes. Not in any other way.

The choice to print 173 copies is not accidental, that final “73” is a small reference and homage to 1873, the year of foundation of Virtus Scherma Bologna, a sports club to which Luigi belongs and where, in this period, is also training Olga Kharlan

The solidarity stickers of Olga Kharlan and Luigi Samele are linked to the “Make Comics Not War” campaign, a charity auction of original comic strips that will be organized in collaboration with the Catawiki website in May 2022.

Celebrative Sticker #21: OLGA KHARLAN!

Fencing forever! We are happy to finally be able to pay homage to this splendid discipline and do so with an international champion, an Olympic gold medalist, several times on the European and world throne. The Celebrative Sticker # 21 solidarity figurine is dedicated to fencing and Olga Kharlan!

Olga is an absolute icon of sport in her country, her popularity goes beyond fencing, so much so that Mattel decided to create a Barbie doll in her honor. But it is from fencing that everything comes and it is thanks to sporting successes that Olga is known, appreciated and followed.

In this difficult period for Peace, it is even more significant to pay tribute to the Ukrainian champion, but the athlete must be celebrated as such, we would have done it anyway, in the strong hope and deepest desire that the only “battles” could return to be only those in a ring, on a playing field or on a platform, as in the case of fencing.

Celebrative Sticker #20: VITTORIO STACCIONE!

Vittorio Staccione Forever! So that the memory of Vittorio, of his history, of all the stories related to the political and racial persecutions of fascism and the consequent, for many, deportation to Nazi concentration camps, may never be forgotten, may never be “a history of other times” , to be placed in the drawer.

We are happy and proud to announce the Celebrative Sticker # 20 solidarity sticker, dedicated to Vittorio Staccione. The sporting and human history of the turin footballer goes hand in hand with the darkest twenty years in Italy.

The refusal to bow to Mussolini’s regime undoubtedly made Vittorio’s career as a footballer very complicated; despite the intimidation and even the repeated physical violence suffered by the fascist squads, Staccione on the playing field was able to leave his mark, both in his beloved Torino FC, where he grew up, and later in Cremonese, Fiorentina and Cosenza.

Intense, bitter story, more than others worthy of becoming a film, which is well told in Francesco Veltri’s book “Il mediano di Mauthausen” (Diarkos editions, 2019), thanks also to the collaboration with Federico Molinario, Vittorio’s nephew. It is above all thanks to Federico and the Grande Torino Museum that put us in contact if we were able to carry out this project; thanks also to the Panathlon Club of Cremona and to the Fiorentina Museum if the memory of Staccione is still alive.

Vittorio Staccione, on 12 March 1944, was arrested by the police in Turin and handed over to the SS to be deported to concentration camps, he died in Mauthausen on 16 March 1945; his brother Francesco, deported to the same concentration camp, will follow him nine days later.

For the solidarity sticler, we assumed that history had gone differently, that Italy was a better country in those years and that therefore Vittorio Staccione, solely for his proven football skills, could make his debut and become a protagonist also in the national team. He too triumphed at the International Tournament held between 1927 and 1930, forerunner of that winning Italy of coach Pozzo who will bring the Azzurri to the throne of the world twice in the following 8 years.

TOGETHER for ANED!

With the proceeds of this new solidarity sticker + folder, it will be possible to support the activities of ANED the National Association Ex Deported in the nazi camps (http://www.deportati.it/?lang=en); we strongly feel the need to keep the memory of what happened alive and daily, because it should never happen again. At the same time, 60 copies will be donated to the Grande Torino Museum for sale at their in-house shop. We want to remember Vittorio Staccione both for the great man, persecuted, that he was, and for the great footballer, as the facts say, that he was.

Celebrative Sticker #19: RENATO DALL’ARA!

“So you play only in heaven”. The history of football is also that of great personalities who have allowed thousands of fans to dream with their favorite team. In Bologna this role is certainly destined for a special person, the Celebrative Sticker # 19 solidarity sticker is Renato Dall’Ara, the president of five Bologna FC championships, of the two victories in the Mitropa Cup when it was still a high level tournament (the Champions Cup had yet to be born) and to which Dall’Ara cared in particular.

30 years at the helm of the Rossoblu club, the fans, not only from Bologna, mainly remember that last Scudetto won in the extra match in Rome against Inter, the 1963/64 season, a victory that Renato Dall’Ara was unable to celebrate. struck down by a heart attack just four days ago. That Bologna of miracles, which has returned to the top of Italian football after so many years, owes a great deal to this entrepreneur and his vision of football and how to manage a company.

The initiative was made possible thanks to a really important pool of collaborations, starting from the Dall’Ara family who enthusiastically married our initiative, from Minerva Edizioni, with whom the Stadio / Corriere dello Sport journalist Marco Tarozzi wrote the book “Dall’Ara. Renato it’s me ”, recently released in the bookstore. Finally, the possibility of using the splendid photos of the Walter Breveglieri Archive, the history of Bolognese life for several decades.

Celebrative Stickers #18: GIANNI DE MAGISTRIS!

Waterpolo Forever! Another beautiful sport, a sport where Italy is a symbol of great victories, becomes the protagonist of our solidarity stickers. Water polo has many fans and a glorious history, we could only celebrate it with one of the greatest of all time. We are happy and proud to announce the Celebrative Sticker # 18 dedicated to Gianni De Magistris!

His career has reached important milestones, both in the role of club player, both in the role of national team player, and in the role of manager. The folder that accompanies our solidarity card is therefore celebratory of a long career that led him to win 3 Italian championships with the Rari Nantes, 1 world championship with the national team and 5 participations in the Olympics, with the silver medal of Montreal ’76.

His subsequent career as a coach also made him inimitable, thanks to the splendid “triplete” of Fiorentina Waterpolo, where his daughter Mila, also a high-level player, made her debut. For the first time and for now also the only one, the Viola city took home the Scudetto, Champions Cup and European Super Cup in just one year.

The sticker instead celebrates his long career with the Rari Nantes Florentia, 21 unforgettable, perhaps unrepeatable years. Certainly unique. Having Gianni among our solidarity stickers is a source of great pride.

DE MAGISTRIS FOR GIGLIO AMICO ONLUS! The proceeds from the sale of the solidarity card are intended to support the activities of the Giglio Amico Onlus Association of Florence (https://www.giglioamico.it/), historic and important Florentine reality, with strong purple hues, for 25 years engaged in solidarity field. Reality with which Figurine Forever has already had the opportunity to collaborate and support, proud to renew this partnership. Gianni De Magistris is an honorary member of the non-profit organization.

Celebrative Sticker #17: VENUSTE NIYONGABO!

Burundi forever! Finally after 16 issues we have the opportunity to celebrate the wonderful world of athletics as well. We do it with an authentic monument of African sport, with a gold medal at the Olympics, with a friend also from our Italy and our Bologna where he has lived for some time. The Celebrative Sticker # 17 solidarity sticker is Mr. Atlanta ’96: Venuste Niyongabo!

Sometimes in sport as in life the choices that are made lead to unexpected results, perhaps for others, not for Venuste. We are sure that when the Burundian athlete gave up running the 1500m in Atlanta, where he was among the favorites, to give a dream to his compatriot, he was equally convinced that he could play his cards even in the 5000m. However, Venuste will win that race and bring his country to triumph with the gold medal, the first for Burundi.

25 years have passed since that triumph, could we not take advantage of it to celebrate a historic victory? Venuste now lives in Bologna, he continues to run and make others run through the Run Like Us Association, as well as his social commitment through various realities including the important reality of Peace and Sport, supported by many current sportsmen and past, now also from Figurine Forever (https://www.peace-sport.org/)

VENUSTE NIYONGABO FOR BURUNDI!
Beneficiaries of this new solidarity card is the KAMENGE Youth Center, a meeting place for young people from the Northern Districts of Bujumbura. A project that focuses on the implementation of the Peace and Sport Methodology. The Center in 2012 received the “Right Livelihood Award”, better known as the “Alternative Nobel Prize”, for its action in favor of dialogue between ethnic groups. This program to contribute to a culture of peace through sport is supported by the World Association of the Diaspora (the Burundians who live and work abroad) of which Venuste is Secretary General.

Celebrative Sticker #16: GIOVANNI DE PRA’!

100 of these years Genoa 1893! With a certain pride and emotion we are happy to announce the Celebrative Sticker #16 solidarity sticker dedicated to the great goalkeeper Giovanni De Prà, in the centenary of his debut in Genoa football club.

From that distant 1921 and for many more years, even winning two league titles, the goalkeeper would have defended the goal of the oldest club in Italian football. An incredible and indestructible bond with the colors of his city, so much so that he refused important offers from other clubs. A bond that continued throughout his life.

Giovanni De Prà was one of the greatest Italian goalkeepers of the twentieth century, perhaps less celebrated because he was part of an era where there were still no televisions or even mass stickers, but in Genoa they have not forgotten him and never will. His greatness also allowed the national team to achieve results and satisfactions, in particular third place at the 1928 Amsterdam Olympics, an event that is seen by many as the anticipation of the World Cup which will have its first edition only two years later.

We are equally proud to have established a collaboration with the Museum of the History of Genoa, an important cultural reality for our country; the oldest football club in Italy meets Figurine Forever and we could not have chosen a more iconographic footballer to sanction this union.

100 copies of the 193 printed copies will be donated to the Genoa History Museum to support their activities and their commitment to keeping the historical memory of this incredible team alive. The choice to print 193 copies and not 199 or 160 as is our tradition, is a clear tribute to the year of birth of the Ligurian club, 1893. From Wednesday 24 November the folders available at the Museum will be on sale at the contribution of 5.00 + postage on the site (https://www.fondazionegenoa.com/en/).

Celebrative Sticker #15: MICHELE SCARPONI!

Michele Scarponi forever! Here it is, the first solidarity sticker dedicated to a beloved sport in Italy and in the world, cycling. We are excited and happy to announce the Celebrative Sticker # 15 dedicated to Michele Scarponi, the Eagle of Filottrano, as he was known in the sports world.

Eagle because he was a powerful climber, one of the strongest, a cyclist of absolute greatness who knew both to assert himself individually and in teamwork, leading him to win the 2011 Giro d’Italia and the 2014 Tour de France with the Astana team. and the Giro d’Italia 2016. Just to list just a few of his successes.

Michele was involved in a car accident while training for the 2017 Giro d’Italia, hit by a van that did not respect a stop. Michele died in his Filottrano, while doing what he loved most, racing a bicycle. His Filottrano which, like all of Italy and the world of cycling, has never forgotten it. From an absurd tragedy, the Scarponi family found the strength to create a Foundation, which takes the name of Michele, aimed at the creation and financing of projects that have as their purpose the education to correct road behavior, to a culture of respect for the rules. and more. To initiatives that focus on the fragile user of the road and society.

100 copies of the 160 printed will be donated to the Michele Scarponi Foundation to support their activities, through the contribution of institutions, personalities from the world of sport and cycling enthusiasts .. and stickers.

Celebrative Sticker #14: GIORGIO FERRINI!

Ferrini Forever! We are happy to announce the Celebrative Sticker # 14, the second made in collaboration and in support of the Museum of the Grande Torino and the Leggenda Granata, an exciting tribute to the captain most captain of all the captains of Torino FC, Giorgio Ferrini. The great champion never forgotten by the Grenade people as by all the Azzurri fans and sports fans.

Celebrating it this year is also a tribute to the Italian national team, winning at Euro 2020, as happened in 1968, with Ferrini Champion of Europe. An unforgettable 1968, also seen the victory of Torino FC in the Italian Cup, record holder in the final round ahead of Milan, Inter and Bologna. The solidarity sticker is precisely the celebration of this Torino FC victory.

Not only that, we wanted to create a bridge of memories with Gigi Meroni, the garnet butterfly was the protagonist of our Celebrative Sticker # 7, which unfortunately passed away at the very beginning of that sporting season.

Giorgio Ferrini, 16 seasons with the Torino FC shirt, 566 appearances in the grenade shirt, an absolute record. Giorgio Ferrini Italian Champion 1975/76, in the season where he held the role of second of the coach Gigi Radice. That year Torino FC would return to win the Scudetto.

Giorgio Ferrini died on November 6, 1977 at just 37 years old. From up there he never stopped waving the grenade flag.

100 copies of the 160 printed will be donated to the Museum for sale directly at their place, in order to support the museum and cultural activities of a reality that the whole world envies us (https://www.museodeltoro.it/)

Celebrative Sticker #13: “BARON” SCHULL!

“Il Barone” Forever! Ask who Gary Baron Schull was. Each team, each fan, has its own idol, its own myth, the relationship of the American with Fortitudo Basket Bologna goes further. Compared to other champions, his stay lasted perhaps less, 5 years; compared to other American champions, he did not come from the NBA, he did not arrive in Bologna at the middle or end of his career, but at just 23 years old.

In Bologna Schull left his heart and soul, playing 5 seasons for a team that did not have the coat of arms of other clubs but for that very reason it was necessary to breathe fire and flames. So Schull made a famous bloody photo of him, carried in triumph after a derby won against Virtus.

Gary Schull was a great player, on the pitch he made a difference, so much so that he won the ranking of the best scorer in Italy but also that of the best rebounder. He had a huge heart, so much so that he gave up continuing his career in Fortitudo to return to the USA to assist his sick mother.

Fortitudo supporters will have noticed it, it is no coincidence, we waited to arrive at Celebrative # 13 to ideally deliver it to the Baron, it could only be his, like number 7, last year, it could only be dedicated to Gigi Meroni. That same shirt number 13 worn by Schull over the years Fortitudo and by the Bolognese club then withdrawn, now stands at the top of the Paladozza, just above the curve that bears his name and where the ultras of Fossa dei Leoni are crowded. Historical reality of organized support, born in the years of the Baron in Bologna, this too cannot be just a coincidence.

There are emblematic photos of Schull in Fortitudo, often linked to the early years when the sponsor was Eldorado ice cream, which is why we wanted to do something different. The solidarity sticker portrays him with the Alco shirt, season 72/73 (his last in Bologna), his stickers with the Eldorado shirt exist, there is no (at this point, there was no) an Alco sponsored.

In addition, the strong relationship with the fans could not fail to be celebrated in turn and so here he is the Baron, who returned to the city of Bologna, showing the scarf of Fossa dei Leoni at the curve. Most of the boys and girls of the curve were not yet born when Schull wore the colors of the F shield, but it does not matter, his myth has made him immortal, a legend that will never end. Too bad fate took him away too soon.

We would have liked to have sent this solidarity card to the Baron, we will send it to his son Garrett to whom we talked about this project several months ago and he replied happy, also about the social purposes and having involved the fans, who have never stopped loving, they will never be able to do it, dad Gary.

“BARON” SCHULL FOR MADAGASCAR! The proceeds will be donated to the initiative ADOPT WITH THE FIGURINE to support long distance adoptions in Madagascar and to support the Center for the Protection and Research of Exotic Fauna of Monte Adone, Marzabotto (Bologna)

Celebrative Sticker #12: “TORO” RINALDI!

Happy birthday “Toro”! On the occasion of Alberto Rinaldi’s 75th anniversary, we are excited and happy to announce the Celebrative Sticker # 12, dedicated to one of the greatest Italian baseball players of all time. In this way, we are equally satisfied, even this splendid sport becomes part of our solidarity stickers.

Alberto Rinaldi spent a good part of his career with the Fortitudo shirt, with which as a player he won shields and the Champions Cup. Bologna is his city, here he lived and still lives, with that splendid parenthesis in the USA, in Cincinnati. Toro brought a little bit of the USA to Bologna among the first, but there are many reasons, given his wonderful career, to define him “beyond a reasonable doubt” (just to make Americans a bit …) a legend.

The Celebrative was created by directly involving the champion who enthusiastically supported our initiative. Thanks also to the daughter Jennifer. The proceeds will be entirely donated to the ADOTTA CON LA FIGURINA initiative to support long distance adoptions in Madagascar.

Celebrative Sticker #11: PAMELA NOUTCHO SAWA!

It took 11 Celebrative to get to the first woman, too many, but it wasn’t a choice. The choice, strong and convinced, however, was to celebrate Pamela, Italian boxing champion in the Elite 2020 category. The sportswoman, of Cameroonian origin, who in everyday life works as a nurse at the Maggiore Hospital in Bologna.

A beautiful story of sport, life and aggregation. Pamela is in fact an athlete of the ASD Bolognina Boxe Social Gym, a reality born in 2017, which soon became a reference point for the neighborhood and far beyond, strongly based on the belief that the right to sport must be accessible to all, without sex differentiation, religion, race and social background.

Just as Pamela helped the Gym to make itself known and appreciated, so much so that it was rewarded for the work done by the Municipality of Bologna, Figurine Forever also decided to contribute to the rebirth of this important reality, after the long months of closure due to sanitary emergency. The proceeds from the sale of this solidarity sticker will in fact be used to support the activities of Bolognina Boxe.

Not only that, in the sticker we want to emphasize a detail, the Italian flag, to remember the struggle of Pamela and many other women and men like her, who grew up in Italy, to obtain citizenship. In his case, also for proven sporting merits.

Pamela queen of FIGUCON! The new solidarity sticker will be on sale for a preview on 12 June at the great event organized by the Association, at Estragon Club, Bologna.

Celebrative Sticker #10: BRUNO NERI!

Who was Bruno Neri? Bruno Neri was an excellent footballer, a man of great values, a patriot. Before the outbreak of the Second World War, his sporting career starts from his hometown Faenza and continues to the big clubs, Fiorentina for 7 years, Torino for 3 years with an interlude to Lucchese that in 1936 / 37 played in Serie A. The period in Tuscany is also remembered for the three appearances in the national team.

Bruno Neri is famous for a photo from 1931, shown in our folder, on the occasion of the inauguration of the new stadium in Florence he is the only footballer not to give the Roman salute in front of the fascist hierarchs. Neri was not particularly involved in politics, perhaps he wasn’t even too interested, but his passion for art and poetry could have little to do with an authoritarian regime.

His proximity to anti-fascist circles led him to participate in the partisan struggle, as deputy commander of the Ravenna Brigade, his passion for football was also able to resist the pains and horrors of war, so much so that Neri took part in the Alta Italia championship of 1944 with the shirt of “his” Faenza.

Bruno Neri died on 10 July 1944, during a fire fight with the Nazis, near the Hermitage of Gamogna in the Apennines. We like to repeat that our solidarity stickers are not only intended to collect funds but also to remember, to raise awareness, to support historical memory as in this case.

At the same time we like to imagine, create alternative stories, for this reason we have created the sticker of Bruno Neri as a football player for the national team at the 1938 World Cup in France, won by the “Azzurri”. The blue shirt you see in the photo is really his and is kept at the Grande Torino Museum.

The entire proceeds from the sale of this Celebrative Sticker will go to our international Adotta Con La Figurina – Sticker Raising for Solidarity https://figurineforever.com/en/sticker-raising/

Celebrative Sticker #9: GIGI MARULLA!

Gigi Marulla forever! There are players who have entered the collective imagination, champions who have not played in top clubs or in the national team but who nevertheless have remained in the hearts of many fans. One of these is certainly Gigi Marulla, Cosenza’s flag but also with important seasons with Genoa and Avellino.

We are happy and proud to release this Celebrative Sticker and to do it in collaboration with the city that loves it most, Cosenza, so much so that the San Vito stadium is dedicated to him. Gigi Marulla left us too soon but his memory is alive and strong in the heart of Cosenza fans and all lovers of football and good sports stories.

We wanted to pay homage to Number 9 with a sticker linked to Cosenza’s victory in the 1983 Anglo-Italian Tournament, the only international trophy on the club’s bulletin board. A sticker that doesn’t exist, like the ones we like to make!

The initiative was made possible thanks to the availability of Kevin Marulla and the family of the Calabrian champion. The role of the Cultural Association “Ritorno al Fumetto” was fundamental to allow the successful outcome of contacts with the Marulla family and the sports world of Cosenza. The proceeds will be donated to the ASSOCIATION LA TERRA DI PIERO – COSENZA (http://www.laterradipiero.it/), an important social reality born to remember Piero Romeo, a great fan and leader of the Rossoblu supporters, but also a man who had made solidarity a lifestyle.

Celebrative Sticker #8: ALBERTO DI CHIARA!

Alberto Di Chiara was a great player in italian football, his only misfortune was to play in a period where we had absolute champions in the same role, however, for all football fans it remains a name to remember and that has made thousands of players dream. fans, especially in his time at Parma, with whom he won a Uefa Cup and a Cup Winners’ Cup, a level never reached by the yellow&blue club.

For this reason we wanted to pay homage to Alberto with the national team shirt, with which he has 7 appearances, imagining that thanks to his rides on the wing Italy in 1992 could have reached the final phase of the 1992 European Championships in Sweden, maybe who knows by winning them instead of Denmark.

The Celebrative was created by directly involving the Roman champion who enthusiastically supported our initiative. Thanks to Giglio Amico Onlus of Florence for their fundamental help. The proceeds will be entirely donated to the ADOTTA CON LA FIGURINA initiative to support long distance adoptions in Madagascar.

Celebrative Sticker #6: ENEAS!

40 years after his arrival in Italy (Bologna, 1980/81 season) we are excited and happy to celebrate Eneas De Camargo, a high-quality exponent of Brazilian football, not too lucky in his experience in Serie A but still remembered with great affection today. from the Bolognese public.

We therefore wanted to work with dreams, thinking about calling up the Brazilian national team for Espana82 thanks to a great championship in Bologna. In reality, Eneas played in the Selecao and had the opportunity to be called up for the 1974 and 1978 world championships.

Unfortunately, Eneas left us at the age of 34 due to a car accident. The Celebrative was created involving the family, in particular the son Rodrigo who enthusiastically supported our little gift. All proceeds will be donated to the Asilo Nova Esperanca in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in which the Italian non-profit organization ISCOS is involved (https://www.iscosemiliaromagna.org/progetto/asilo-nova-esperanca/)

Celebrative Sticker #7: GIGI MERONI!

CELEBRATIVE STICKER #7: GIGI MERONI!

We have been thinking about Gigi Meroni for a long time but we wanted to wait to get to number 7, like his kit. We as Figurine Forever, more than football fans, are fans of football stories and a “book or film” would not be enough for “the butterfly grenade”. Torino, but also Genoa, Como and the Italian national team. Too bad that fate took him away too soon, at just 24 years old, making him a legend.

The Celebrative Sticker is made in collaboration with the Museum of Grande Torino and the Granata Legend (http://www.museodeltoro.it/), which we thank for their enthralling passion. We believe and support their great cultural work, the history of our country is also reflected in the pages of Torino. For this reason we have decided to donate 150 copies of this Celebrative Sticker to the Museum, which they will be able to freely sell to visitors and fans and with the proceeds to support their activities and the life of this important museum reality.
