The murder of Vincenzo Paparelli, which took place before the derby of 28 October 1979 inside the Olympic stadium, is one of the darkest pages in the history of Italian football. On 18 November of the same year, Roma and Lazio decided to play a friendly match with mixed teams: “Romans” against “Rest of Italy”. All proceeds went to the Paparelli family.
The “Romans”, led by Lovati, presented a team that showed Giordano alongside players as D’Amico, Di Bartolomei and Bruno Conti. The “non-Romans”, led by Liedholm played with Garlaschelli, Viola and Pruzzo. At that time Pouchain was the kit supplier of both Roman teams. To avoid any reference to the traditional colors, Pouchain created a special jerseys. The kits were white and green and had both club logos sewn on it.
