The Euro 2020 Cup on display at the Coverciano Football Museum

An opportunity for young and old to see Mancini's team win the Wembley trophy up close

After the triumph of the Azzurri at Wembley, the Football Museum of Coverciano - which collects the history and the present of the Italian national team - has recorded a record number of visits to see the Cup won by the team of coach Roberto Mancini.

Open 7 days a week with continuous opening hours at weekends from 10am to 6pm, the Museum is ready to welcome those who want to see this wonderful achievement of the Italian national team up close. For the occasion, the jerseys with which the European champions faced their opponents throughout the journey that led to the final victory are on display.

During the visit it will be possible to see, in addition to the Cup, the shirts worn by the players during the matches. A nice way to make fans and enthusiasts relive this new Azzurri feat.

The museum, which is part of the Football Museum Foundation, is a historical documentation centre on football in Italy. Its rooms contain numerous memorabilia from the FIGC from 1934 to the present day (balls, shoes, medals, cups, shirts), as well as photographs and historical films.

It was conceived on the occasion of Italia 1990, when the Federal Technical Centre was enlarged on the initiative of Fino Fini, President of the Foundation, but was inaugurated only ten years later, on 22 May 2000. Since then, it has housed the history of the national team from its beginnings to the present day.

Reservations are recommended, with notification of the time of the shift: 055-600526 or email:
