“A conquest of civilization” as underlined by the federal president Gabriele Gravina, who projects the entire football system into a more equitable and international dimension. “It has matured thanks to the commitment of all the parties involved: Federation, Division, club, and all those who believed in this difficult and not always facilitated path – said the # 1 of Italian football -.
