EURO 2012 – Italy in Semifinals!

26 Jun

The Italians, and just about all Europeans for that matter, love their football. In Cortona Sunday night, we cheered with the locals as we watched large TVs blaring outside bars in Piazza Signorelli. The faithful had gathered in their Italia shirts and colors to support their team. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect viewing venue.


After a long and hot match, Italy beat England in a shootout. (photos from RAI Italian TV)


Yesterday’s newspaper headlines said it all.

We are Lions, read one paper…


Great Italy, beats England on Penalites, read another.

Great Italy, beats England on Penalties

Italy’s next match is Thursday, 9:45 PM, when they face the powerhouse Germany. Once again, the Italians will bring their passion, hope and probably a lot of prayers to the piazzas of Cortona. Stay tuned. Go ITALIA!!!
