“We are ready to embrace our community once again. The great Italian rugby family can finally return to the national side to support the Azzurri and we couldn’t be happier. We’re experiencing the reboot moment from several perspectives, all exciting: the return of the audience goes hand-in-hand with the debut of a new cast, with a group of youngsters that have recently made their appearance on the demo match arena, or might deserve a first chance this fall. Treviso and Parma will give our Azzurri team a chance to play and win back on the international stage in front of their most loyal fans, in the two stadiums they see as champions with Benetton and Zebre on the weekends, strengthening ties with our home grounds in two factories – as evidenced by the recent Rugby World Cup qualification tournament in Lanfranchi and the Rainbow Cup Final – they can successfully host major international events. We have chosen three ideal cities to come together and to make the national team feel the warmth of Italian rugby, maintaining and renewing the connection with our roots, with the people of rugby.
