"This exhibition represents a heartfelt tribute to a man whose contribution left an indelible mark on the history of our national team and the clubs he played for. "A golden boy" is a definition that perfectly describes Paolo Rossi, not only for his outstanding skills on the pitch, but also for his innate humility, his deep humanity and total dedication to football." Ambassador De Riu explains.

"Through this exhibition, we have the opportunity to know the most intimate aspect of this champion: the personal challenges he faced, his victories and defeats. We understand that behind that extraordinary talent was a man who lived his life with courage and passion. Thanks to his feats and his tireless commitment, Paolo Rossi has passed on an important lesson to us: success, in any field, requires constant effort, unwavering dedication and a burning passion that must burn within us. I would like to sincerely thank everyone who made this exhibition possible and invite everyone to immerse themselves in this exciting journey into Rossi's life, hoping that his extraordinary story will inspire us to pursue our dreams with determination and leave a mark on the world, as he did not only in Italian football, but much more widely", adds De Riu.
