Four days after the triumph of Euro 2020, a new film has been made that recounts, through never-seen-before images, how Italy became European Champions, titled ‘The Azzurri Dream: The Road to Wembley’. It was produced by the New Formats Development Department and will be aired on Thursday 15 July at 20:30 CEST on Rai1.
This is a documentary film that retraces the victorious journey of Mancini's Azzurri, from the debut match against Turkey to the final against England. A film crew lived with the National Team for a month, so they could give the viewers inside access to the lives of the players and all the staff members, following training sessions, matches, travels and celebrations. An adventure told through the voices of the main players, who gave all their dreams, joys, sorrows and hopes to the cameras.
Pierluigi Colantoni, Rai New Formats Development Director, said that "’The Azzurri Dream: The Road to Wembley’ is the completion of a project started a year ago together with the FIGC, to tell the approach of the National team to the European Championships through the 4 episodes of ‘The Azzurri Dream’, aired right before the European Championship, bringing the new television format of the documentary film series to one of main network’s most important time slots".
