Rossano Rossi recalls his brother’s blue jersey victories, which were followed by a moving intervention from his wife Federica: “It’s a great feeling to be here to represent Paulo with Rossano and the national team that he loved and honored so much. He would like to be remembered as in the famous image of that final, with his arms in the sky and the blue shirt. It’s right that I’m here today with the guys that Paul loved and followed.” .
