Abstract: A child wearing the scarf of the Rome soccer team around his neck goes around helplessly through the tables of a street market in front of the Olympic Stadium listening to the soccer match on his small radio. He turns his eyes to “his” red and yellow flag waving and sits on a bench all alone. One of the custodians of the stadium sees him and is moved: he lets the child into the stadium and helps him to go up on the steps filled with sports fans who are celebrating. In the final lines we hear the words: «Thank you, Rome», for arriving one step from victory in the Soccer Championship Tournament of 1986-87.
