1974: A hot…game between Nervi and Canottieri

Spectators protesting against the referees during the game of Nervi and Canottieri Napoli for the 1974 Italian Championship. Canottieri won the game following two extra time periods, with one player of Nervi excluded without substitution. In the picture we note, the coach of Nervi, Rosario Parmegiani (Olympic winner in Rome 1960 Olympics), trying to keep his player calm.
