Inspired by footballers reading newspapers and Italy's pink LaGazzetta dello Sport.
GIANNI BRERA: THE GODFATHER OF CALCIO WRITINGS
by Jim Hart
"LaGazzetta dello Sport is Italy’s sports paper of record. Its pink pages are symbolic and ubiquitous. Based in the commercial capital of Milan, the daily has the highest circulation of any sporting publication in Italy—quite some feat in a sports-mad country. The paper covers much more than just football, and as its editor—the youngest in Italian newspaper history—Gianni Brera was impassioned by many sports beyond the pitches of Italy."
