Obiettivo Granata 1919-1929. Origins and Rise of Reggiana Football Team aims to celebrate the history of an important sporting institution of the city: the A.C. Reggiana football team, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2019. On 25 September 1919 the A.C. Reggiana was founded and since then a deep relationship has developed between the city and the “Maglia Granata”, a unique bond that goes beyond a simple passion for football. A century of victories, defeats, joy and disappointment is narrated in the exhibition – curated by Giacomo Giovannini and Giacomo Mazzali and promoted in collaboration with Reggio Audace Football Club – through the best shots of the key sports photographers of A.C. Reggiana’s first 10 years. An engaging itinerary from the team’s beginnings to the Serie A, narrated through its protagonists.
