Italy's football museum in Tuscany

Italy’s football museum is located in Tuscany, in the florentine area of Coverciano which is the technical centre of the Italian national football team.
As a kind of sacred ground in Italian soccer, the museum shows the glory and pain of this emotional sport (and an emotional side), in the photographic archives, in the medals and trophies displayed, the balls and jerseys on show.

With the stories of legends told, for example Giancarlo Antognoni, or the penalty kick missed in 1994 by Baggio, the visit is to a mecca of Italian football.
Talking soccer in Italy means a discussion on the history of the country, and all the best and worst of the Italian character over the years.

Entrance to the Italian football museum costs three euros, with children from six to 14 years of age, half that.
The museum is closed on Sundays – it’s holy day for both church-goers and Italian football fans.
