At the Museum of Applied Arts in Belgrade, Italian Ambassador to Serbia, H.E. Luca Gori, has officially opened the exhibition “In memory of Paolo Rossi and Sinisa Mihajlovic” dedicated to the two recently deceased champions.
In addition to the Serbian Culture Minister Maja Gojković and museum director Biljana Jotiš, Paolo Rossi’s wife Federica Cappelletti and Siniša Mihajlović’s brother Dražen attended the opening.
The exhibition, which includes memorabilia, jerseys and iconic photographs from the careers of the two footballers, was sponsored by World Camp International together with the Italian Embassy in Serbia and the Italian Cultural Institute in Belgrade, with the patronage of Fifa, Coni and Figc and the support of Banca Intesa and Generali Assicurazioni.
“The exhibition dedicated to Paolo Rossi and Siniša Mihajlović celebrates the friendship between Italy and Serbia through two great champions, beloved by the fans of both countries for their trophies won, but above all, for their ability to establish a genuine human relationship with the public,” said Ambassador Gori and added:
“Sport, in all its disciplines, represents an extraordinary bond between Italy and Serbia, a bond on which we leverage to strengthen bilateral relations and promote Italy in Serbia, also in view of the Expo dedicated to sports and music that Belgrade will host in 2027.”
