This site offers insight to supporters of the Italian national team for the duration of the World Cup.

I have been a fan of the Azzurri since I was a youngster. My memories stretch back to the 1978 World Cup.

My favourite World Cup moment was Italy's 3-2 win over Brazil in Spain 1982.

Biggest disappointment was my not being selected by the nazionale. Being shut out of the team by the likes of Baggio, Zola, Totti, Maldini and 40000 other skilled and graceful calciatore.

All time Italian World Cup XI (or at least from 1978) 4-4-1-2

LB: Maldini
CB: Scirea
CB: Bergomi
RB: Gentile

I'll be scanning English and Italian language media to see how the Azzurri are faring. So I encourage you to keep an eye on my blog. I look forward to sharing my passion for Italy's adaptation of the beautiful game.
