Museo del Calcio
Viale Aldo Palazzeschi, 20, 50135 Firenze FI, Italia
Florence’s Football Museum is located at the Centro Tecnico Federale (National Football Training Ground) in Coverciano and highlights the past and present of the Italian national football team.
Visiting the Football Museum is a unique chance to relive the emotions and contrasting feelings tied to the Italian national team. But that’s not all, as shoes, footballs, mementos, trophies, banners and historical kits are all treasured inside the museum, recounting a history that goes beyond the pitch: the history of Italy.
From 16 March, 1898 and the establishment of the FIGC (the Italian Football Federation) to the successes of the national squad in the 1930s, the black shirts and the World Cup triumphs, the Superga air disaster and the defeat to North Korea in the 1966 England World Cup. These setbacks were followed by the team’s revival two years later, with the European success of 1968 and the unforgettable memories of the last two World Cups raised triumphantly in 1982 and 2006.
You can see the outfit of the Italian team who won the European Championship in 2021.
