The Prize

Adidas Etrusco football used for an Italia '90 training. Former Inter FC captain Beppe Bergomi has signed the football, making it unique.

Made by Adidas, the Etrusco Unico was the official soccer ball for the FIFA World Cup held in Italy in 1990, the European Championship held in Sweden in 1992 and the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona.

The name and the complex design of the ball took inspiration from the ancient Etruscans and their refined decorative motifs. The heads of three Etruscan lions decorate each of the hexagonal backgrounds inspired by the Tango, another old style of ball. This was the first ball to have a layer of polyurethane foam which gave softness to the touch and a particular elasticity.

This unique item comes with its history and was used by the Italian national team with Beppe Bergomi (who has signed the ball) for pre-match preparation.

Collector's item: deflated and folded

 

The Cause

Amici per il Centrafrica Onlus is a non-religious association created in 2001 for proactive participation in helping people who live in poverty. This nonprofit organization helps the people of the Central African Republic, especially those experiencing greatest hardship in Sub-Saharan Africa. It offers them instruction, healthcare and training for employment so that they might become fully self-sufficient. 

The association is made up of volunteers who help both in Italy and Africa. It receives funding from various sources, including individuals, private businesses, banks, foundations, public bodies and schools. It believes that the improvement in living conditions of people all over the world is everyone's responsibility.

Growth and lifting the limits of development are stimulated through educating people and raising awareness about existing opportunities. Healthcare emergencies, widespread poverty due to political, social and structural instability, and the lack of attention toward defending minorities all impair the people of Central African countries in building solid bases for planning their future.
