My life and times in the eternal city and beyond

Italy and the football world in mourning

All football in Italy was suspended this weekend after the sudden the death of Livorno midfielder Piermario Morosini.

Only 25 years old, he collapsed on the pitch during a Serie B game in Pescara and was later pronounced dead in hospital. He had been playing with Livorno on loan from Serie A side Udinese.

As you know I don’t generally blog about sad things nor am I a news source. But Italian football is very close to my heart and I mourn this tragic loss with the community.

It is another ever present reminder to us all that life is short. It’s not a rehearsal. Dream large and live it to the fullest.

Here’s a link to English newspaper The Italian Insider for the full story.
