50th anniversary of Giuliano Taccola death

On the 50th anniversary of his death, Roma will pay tribute to Giuliano Taccola during Saturday’s Serie A game against SPAL. Taccola, a prolific striker, sadly passed away when he was just 24 years old – a promising Roma career cut short before it had really had the chance to get going.

Last year, Taccola became the latest player to be inducted into the club’s Hall of Fame. During Saturday’s game, the players will wear a special patch on the left shoulder of their kit, with the word ‘Giuliano’ written in a simple font.
