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 initiative to support long distance adoptions in Madagascar.

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.

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 #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.
