tavola fuorigioco 2The football world is told in the meeting of the Tri-Artgallery Rome on June 25, with illustrations by Maurice Quarello for a story of the past. Coincidence would have it, yesterday the Italian national team is out of the world but Brazilian art and literature can ideally continue the game of football without times and nationalism.

“Offside”, the book by Fabrizio Silei for Ear immature edition, once again the world of football in Europe where the Nazi camp down in the Austrian national Wunderteam, known as the “team of wonders.” The protagonist of the boards of artist Matthias Sindelar, one of the strongest players in the Austrian national team, dubbed the “Mozart of the ball.” To lead us to the discovery of its history is Carla Ghisalberti, an expert in children’s literature, which encounter the Tri Artgallery offers together with shows the reading of the story of Silei. The author has chosen as its narrator a child fan of the Austrian national team, fascinated by the rise Hitler, to tell the story of the greatest soccer player of the 30s he stopped playing after the annexation of Austria to Germany. And the words become figures thanks to the exposure of Quarello that traces the life: the road, the misery, the encounter with the football field, stunts, success.

“Vienna, spring 1938. Marcus, 9 years old, is crazy about football and for the Führer. His favorite hero is not, however, the German leader, but the captain of the Austrian national team, Matthias Sindelar, one of the greatest champions of all time. Marcus is in the stands to witness a historical Austria-Germany. It will be the last game between the two teams that, after the German annexation, will merge into one team. Whimsical and unpredictable – they call him the Mozart of football – Sindelar, however, refuses to play the score written by the Nazi authorities. And he invents. Memorable goals and assists during the game. Then, offside, a gesture just as extraordinary and sensational. At first disoriented and confused, Marcus joins his chorus of applause at the stadium. Matthias Sindelar, however, does not forgive. I do not forgive that he wanted to combine sports with social values. “
