Announcing the UK Launch of 'The Torino FC Legend - an Italian Fairytale': a Must-Have Football Book by Andrea Rosselli
August 06, 2007, Press Dispensary. The first complete history of Torino Football Club, written in English, is about to be released. From August 6, 2007, world-wide football fans and English language readers will finally be able to discover the fascinating 100-year legend of this glorious Italian team.
‘The Torino FC Legend – an Italian Fairytale’ (302 pages, Mirco Occhetti Publisher/Toronews), written by Italian journalist, Andrea Rosselli, explains the history of the club to an international audience that may not otherwise learn of its secrets.
The book is written by a fan as a fan: so readers don't get a ‘cold’ chronological description of life at the club; instead they are treated to a passionate journey through the people, places and events that made the Torino FC great.
A true fairytale for the football world, and an inspiration to its readers, Mr Rosselli's book gives an unmissable insight into the romance of the sport. It accurately conveys that Torino FC - or more simply 'Toro' - is not just a football team: it is an ideal, a value, a way of life, and much more.
The book, printed on high-quality paper and containing more than 40 photos, some of which were previously unpublished, will initially be available on two websites - http://store.toronews.net and http://www.sportsbooksdirect.co.uk - costing £18.99 or € 28.00.
