Alessandro Amerighi is a student in communication sciences at the University of Pisa and aspiring journalist. He is also working on a project (ntrs.it) that is a media-channel and personal portfolio where he use to share contents and write stories.

He is a passionate football fan, supporting his local team, Grosseto FC, and even Juventus since he was a little boy. Not only, he appreciates british culture in all its aspects, from the music to the stylish streetwear clothes and most-famous brands. Actually, England is the foreign country he visited the most. He also has sympathized with West Ham United.

When he is not speaking football he enjoys to listen and discover music (check him on Spotify if you want to know his favs), spend some time doing physical activity, or just go out with friends for a drink. He loves to travel, with the aim to know and learn as much as possible from others cultures and realities.

What is your favourite Copa90 video and why?

I loved the story of Liberi Nantes, the Rome-based refugees team. I feel happy to figure out that there’s still people trying to do something special for the unlucky ones, and i am even more proud if these projects come from Italy. We definitely need someone who shares respect like them.

What is the best football game you have seen, and why?

The 2006 World Cup semi-final, Italy against Germany is definitely the best game i’ve seen so far. There are so many reasons, as many as the people who went down the streets that night. It is one of the best football memories I have.

What is your favourite football snack?

Is beer a valid option? Seriously speaking, I used to eat “porchetta” sandwiches during half time at the stadium, but i have also fell in love with English pies.

Who is your footballing idol?

Alessandro Del Piero is my definition of the term “idol”. He always represented a legend to me, and the pure example of class and elegance in football. Now i’m delighted by Paul Pogba.
