Next week marks a celebratory charity-dinner to honor Giovanni Bertini’s 66th birthday, ex-player who now suffers from a rare neuromuscular disorder.


After six years with the Giallorossi, Bertini is acclaimed as one of the club’s most important players in the late 1960s and early 1970s, in which he played 54 matches. The defender though, now suffers from a rare neuromuscular disorder that has left him disabled.

The dinner will be held at Le Streghe on Via Tuscolana 643 on the 12th of January alongside authors such as Francesco Gocci, Diego Angelino, Paul Marcacci, Alessandro Oricchio, Marco Madeddu, Susana Marcellini, and many others.

During the event there will be a raffle with prizes such as an autographed football and signed jersey.
