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. For these 100 copies, please contact the Foundation directly (https://www.fondazionemichelescarponi.com/). For the other 60 managed by our Association, refer to the information below.

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 campaign in order to support long distance adoptions at the Mondobimbi Village in Tulear, Madagascar.

Celebrative Sticker #9: 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: 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: 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.

The Celebrative was created by involving the Facchetti family, in particular his son Gianfelice who enthusiastically supported our little tribute. The Facchetti family itself has decided who to allocate the funds raised to: the Cassano d’Adda Hospital, heavily involved in the management of the Covid-19 emergency. It is the city where the Facchetti lived for many years and is a symbol of Italian football, having given birth to the legendary VALENTINO MAZZOLA.
