A dream 2021: all the victories of Italian sport

by archysport

Wanting to forget Covid for a moment, 2021 was an exciting year to say the least, sportingly speaking. Italy has managed to establish itself in a huge number of competitive activities, to the point of astounding any enthusiast. Below we try to propose a summary of the joys that our athletes have been able to give us.

From music to football

It can be said that it all began with European champions who do not really have anything to do with the world of sport. It is about the Maneskin, which on May 24 kicked off a fabulous path, which led them to become, today, one of the most famous bands in the world. They won the Eurofestival, after having imposed themselves in Sanremo with their Shut up and good. It hadn’t happened for 30 years. A dream that continued with successful covers, original songs launched on the web and concerts everywhere. From Europe to America, everyone loves them.

Here’s everything that happened before the Olympics:

  • 3 July – The women’s softball team is European Champion with 11 wins out of 11 matches and therefore zero defeats
  • 4 July – Italy’s pre-Olympic basketball company. Won the pass for Tokyo 17 years after the 2004 Athens silver medal. Defeat host Serbia in the final in Belgrade
  • 11 July – Berrettini writes history. He is the first Italian to ever reach the Wimbledon final. Second place for him behind an “alien” like Djokovic but this remains a gem for him and Italian tennis
  • 11 July – Italy is European Champion. Beat England in the final at Wembley. A resounding success, also because it took place in the home of the opponents. Everything happens on penalties after going immediately behind and then having recovered with Bonucci. Salvifico Donnarumma on pitches from 11 meters and a dream night for Mancini and Vialli, as well as for the whole country.
