Calcio as an art form

“THE ANGELS SING IN HIS LEGS” – FIORENTINA’S ALDO AGROPPI ON ROBERTO BAGGIO (1985-86)

This is the space where we celebrate the art, design and culture of calcio. Here you can nod in appreciation at the images and illustrations of our guest artists and photographers, marvel at the architectural magnificence of Italy’s great stadiums and weep with sentimental joy as your favourite old kit makes a surprise appearance.
