Football Museum, Florence

A journey into the history of Italy’s national soccer team

via Aldo Palazzeschi, 20

The Football Museum is part of the Centro Tecnico Federale di Coverciano national football training grounds and showcases the past and present of the Italian National Football Team.

 

Visiting the Football Museum is a unique opportunity to experience the joy and losses of the Italian national squad. Plus lots more: boots, balls, cups, mementos, pennants and historical shirts, all treasured in the museum, bear witness to history that goes way beyond the ground. The museum shows the history of Italy. From 16 March 1898, the day of founding of the FIGC, the successes of the Italian national team in the 1930s, the Superga air disaster and the defeat in the 1966 World Cup against North Korea, the team’s revival two years later winning the UEFA Euro 1968 and the unfailing memories of the last two World Cups raised in glory in 1982 and 2006. Plus, there’s Bearzot pipe and Cannavaro’s shirt.

 

The museum is also home to mementos and shirts of great champions who have contributed to making soccer popular all around the world: from Di Stefano to Pelé and Maradona, players who have gone down in the history of the sport, whose careers have an Italian connection.

 

The mementos on display are authentic relics of stories and anecdotes that are hard to find on the Internet or in books.

 

Walking into the Football Museum also means being able to visit the Centro Tecnico Federale di Coverciano, the home of the Italian National Football Team. Seeing where the Italian team train and where the greatest footballers in Italian history have set foot.
