Offseason Project: Legends of Fiorentina

Giancarlo_20antognoni_medium




My idea to keep this blog active over the summer is to write biographies of various Fiorentina legends - a little bit of personal accounts when possible, but more importantly a way to help recognize the Viola greats most of us were too young to recognize. I would like it if others want to join in so we can create a collection of Fiorentina legend biographies for future reference.

Obviously this is all for fun so there's no requirements or scheduling, personally I think it should be limited to players that have over 100 caps for Fiorentina or did something significant of note - exceptions could be made for all time greats with interesting stories like Socrates, Borgonovo and Ramon Diaz; the first place I'd look for ideas is wikipedia's list, which is limited to players with 100+ caps and special cases: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ACF_Fiorentina_players The biography doesn't have to be long or anything, it's up to you.

This would be something we do on our free time (I have plenty right now and won't in a month, so that's why I'm proposing this now), so no need to have deadlines or anything like that. I think we should limit it to one biography per player, perhaps some of the more popular choices like Batistuta could have contributions from multiple people.


But for now, if anyone is interested in doing this in the next few months, use this thread to claim players so we don't have duplicates. Feel free to "trade" players if someone else claims someone you want to write about.


My first two will be Miguel Montouri and Daniel Passarella. I'm hoping to get one written after the season ends.
