It is “a new Italian miracle”, the one that is taking place these days in Europe. This is the definition chosen by Ivan Zazzaroni to describe the prospect that among the top sixteen of the Champions there are three Italians: “Do you realize? It is no coincidence that it is snowing”, comments the director ironically. Zazzaroni underlines how “despite all the dysfunctions, the inconveniences and the messes”, Italy was able to “confirm two, maybe three, appearances in the cup that counts. Football works miracles and we can rely on them. Or the bus. de cul, as Sacchi teaches “.
