Synopsis

Silvio Piola, the man of the records, he would have turn 100 on 29th September 2013. The reason that inspired this feature film is the discovery, by her daughter Paola, of a collection of memories and photos that her father hid jealously in the basement of Vercelli’s house. A new reading on the victory of the 1938 World Cup, but also important considerations on the way of living and seeing soccer. 290 goals scored. Striker in Pro Vercelli, Lazio, Torino Fiat (Football League World Championship 1944) Juventus and Novara, where he ended his over-forty-year-old career. Piola “the first one”: six goals scored in a match against Pro Vercelli, more than 30 years before Sivori, a goal scored to England by using his hand a half century before Maradona.
