Quick Bits: Serie A Gossip & News – UPDATED
Dolce & Gabbana Dudes
That’s right, they’re back. In this initial teaser shot, with the full campaign to follow sometime next week, Antonio Di Natale (Udinese), Federico Marchetti (Cagliari), Domenico Criscito (Genoa) Vincenzo Iaquinta and Claudio Marchisio (both Juventus) are this summer’s stars and we’re officially taking photoshop bets.
Edit: Rumour has it, Fabio *WILL* be making his highly anticipated return. Thus far, he’s not included in the outtake shot Chi magazine revealed…
Edit 2: We just noticed UK Vogue has additional behind-the-scenes images of the boys. Beware of their magnifying glass tool.
Oh, if you need to contrast and compare with previous year’s efforts, here’s 2007′s version of successful ad campaigning, 2006′s boxers or briefs debate, and a look at the Milano Beach Soccer team (no idea, but we likey.)
To celebrate Alessandro Del Piero’s 300 league goals, Adidas gifted the Juventus player with a commemorative pair of gold AdiPure boots yesterday at the Intersport & Cisalfa store in Torino. In two nights time, ADP will debut his customized boots (they say ‘Alex300′) at the San Siro against Inter Milan.
FYI, Inter Milan’s Diego Milito and Esteban Cambiasso also showed their faces at an Adidas blogger event last month in Italy. What’s the news hook? Cambiasso is mighty pretty. Just go with it.
