Giocare come Dio comanda. Enzo Bearzot, ritratto intimo

Through meetings with those who knew Enzo Bearzot, this book gives the human portrait of a coach who became a father of the Italian football homeland. Giocare come Dio comanda is a journey in search of the ‘Vecio’, Enzo Bearzot, and his football, an invitation to tell the story to those who shared a piece of the journey with him.The introduction is by Federica Cappelletti, journalist and wife of Paolo Rossi, whom we thank infinitely for her great availability. The index is composed of a series of sections that well represent the different facets and personalities of Bearzot: from the dreamy one of a young athlete and teammate, to a more severe one as a family man, up to the emotional one as a coach and Italian CT. The author makes a real journey in search of those who knew Bearzot closely. The testimonies are signed by the world champions of ’82 such as Dino Zoff, Beppe Bergomi, Franco Selvaggi, former teammates and iconic figures of the Serie A and the National team, such as the goalkeeper Lido Vieri and the idol of the bull Fabrizio Poletti, journalists like Gigi Garanzini, up to the closest family figures, daughter and grandchildren. The result is a portrait that is not obvious, never banal, in fact: intimate.
