Argentinians,
My sister went last year to La Bombonera and brought me a Boca Juniors flag, which has a writing XENEZIAS! What does that mean?

I'd appreciate to get a reply on the Gamboa thread aswell :)

The name "Xeneizes", originates from the early Italian immigrants. The great majority of the immigrants that settled in La Boca, originated from the Italian port city of Genova. The Genovese affectionately call anybody from Genova by this nickname. Due to the heavy Genovese influence in La Boca, the team was nicknamed "Xeneizes" as a form of identity with the overwhelming number of Genovese that had settled in the neighborhood.

If you ever go to Buenos Aires, you must visit La Boca, it is a colorful neighborhood with terrific sights and sounds that are truly extraordinary.
