For the International Children’s Day on June 1st, Pirelli joined other companies and the Italian Embassy in Bucharest in organizing a charity match between champions who have made history in Italian and Romanian football.
To mention a few, Franco Baresi, Pietro Vierchowod, Totò Schillaci, Dan Petrescu, Adrian Mutu, Tudorel Stoica and the young Ianis Hagi – son of Gheorghe, the greatest football symbol in Romania- took the field for solidarity.
The event was organised to raise funds for the “Societatea Academica A Stiintelor Comportamentale din Romania”, which helps children who live in poverty conditions in the regions of Covasna and Teleorman.
The match ended with a 3-1 win for the Italians, following two goals by Ruggiero Rizzitelli and one by Alessandro Bianchi. Dan Petrescu scored for the home team.
