Torino FC& River Plate- Amigos Sempre
This is the current exposition in the Grugliasco Grande Torino museum. As a Granata and a Millonaria, this speaks to me at soul level.

I don't know you, but to me, a Chilean, this Argentinian song comes to mind whenever I see River paying tribute to Toro...

El amor más grande que conocí
Sin querer un día pasó por mí
Por la vía láctea se encontrarán
En algún planeta, en algún lugar.
¿Donde va la gente y su corazón?
¿Donde van los años y este dolor?
¿Y donde voy yo? No me importa ya
Vengo de los ríos que dan al mar.

I was playing it while I went through the photos and believe me I was crying before I knew it.

It speaks Toro and River to me.
I can see Moreno and Mazzola, Labruna and Gabetto, mixing alchemy together in the same grass. If there ever was something close to magic in this world, I'd bet my soul that is.

I came towards River through Enzo Francescoli and then, almost at the same time, I knew of what River did after Superga. I adore Labruna to this day although I only saw him as a manager, since he passed away when I was a child.

Speaking of which, the man on the last 3 photos, Miguel Duval, did something last year that makes me want to hug him.
He's a friend of Pope Francis's sister, for the note.

See yourself what he did last June!!

I myself am a fan of pope John XXIII but this THIS OHH THIS!!!

I didn't know it, but Miguel is no common fan.. He's ALSO the curator of River's own Museum, so he's in synergy with Domenico Beccaria, curator of our Museum at Grugliasco. All the more significance to that last photo!

Beware of having River and Toro at heart since you and I only have one heart. The risk of it exploding is high but there's nothing that comes close to it.

After all, it's the bottled feeling of more than 50 years of undying love, common struggles, shared glory and eternal friendship.


Every energy, smile, blink, inbreath, heartbeat skip, gesture of longing in my life comes from you,Toro!

The stars are the eyes of all our beloved and departed fellow Granata, reflecting their love upon their kin... us.

Nereo Rocco, 1912-1978
