Andrea Luci - Oltre la leggenda
by FABIO DISCALZI - FABRIZIO PUCCI - GIANNI TACCHI
A RECORD-BREAKING CAPTAIN
Beyond the legend. Andrea Luci, at the end of his twelfth season with Livorno Football Team, caught up with and then surpassed legend Mauro Lessi, becoming the player with the most appearances in the amaranth jersey and thus breaking a record that had stood since the 1960s. A flag, one of the last of Italian football.
His is a story of sacrifice, belonging, fulfilled dreams and even dramatic moments. A journey that began among the Salivoli buildings and entered the history of the Team, with which he also touched the A Series. And so - between one chapter and another of his life - he happened to meet Canessa, the friend he played with as a child in the courtyard below the house, like the most significant characters in the amaranth history, from Lessi to Protti and Lucarelli. Always with simplicity, respect and humility. In true Andrea Luci style, the most Amaranth of all time.
The biography is enriched by a photo gallery edited by Foto Novi Livorno, tracing the footballer's career. Luci, class of 1985, originally from Piombino, began playing with Livorno in 2010 and is now in his twelfth season with the amaranth jersey. And at the centre of the book are precisely these twelve seasons, as well as ... behind-the-scenes, secrets, and negotiations that have never been told before.
The entire proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to F.O.P. Italia Onlus, the national association that raises funds for research into Fibrodysplasia ossificante progressiva, a very rare genetic disease that has affected one of Andrea Luci's three children.
