When the World Watched: Italy 2006 Programme 2022

by Thomas Cotton ZFF goes Football

Every player in Italy's squad for the 2006 World Cup came from the domestic league. But on the eve of the tournament, calcio was facing pandemonium: Match-fixing at the highest level shook Serie A. Even the proud "Squadra Azzurra" was suspected of being involved in the scandal. Using archive footage and interviews with the head coach at the time, Marcello Lippi, and player legends such as Gianluigi Buffon and Fabio Cannavaro, the film offers a unique insight into the Italian camp and tells how the Azzurri reconciled their country with its greatest passion: Football.
