Seventy years of history of Pisa lived in this way are indelible and not even the painful disappearance of those who were the protagonists will be enough to cancel them. At least from the heart of the Pisan fans who paid homage to Aureliano Nardini with a symbolic and unique initiative. The coffin of the historic Pisa storekeeper was applauded as he paraded under his North curve for the last time to underline Vocina’s loyalty, as the fans had renamed him because of his voice weakened by a pain in the vocal cords that was not managed, however, to bend him and remove him from the team of his city and his heart.
Friend of the great champions of the Anconetani era, from Dunga to Kift, from Simeone to Chamot, from the late Gianluca Signorini to Davide Lucarelli, to Alessandro Calori to Klaus Berggreen, passing through Padovano and Piovanelli, and up to the present day up to Moscardelli and Torregrossa , Aureliano was a precious friend of all and a point of reference for the fans who hugged him for the farewell embrace. He was also welcomed by the many coaches that the 89-year-old Aureliano has crossed from the 1950s to today, a very long season lived with only one strictly Nerazzurri passion: Vinicio, Simoni, Lucescu, Bolchi up to Gattuso (with whom he had remained a friend) and D ‘Angelo, the last coach who made Vocina’s heart strong in the final playoffs last May who brought Pisa closer to Serie A, a goal achieved by a whisker and which would have been the perfect seal of a unique and unrepeatable path. Welcomed at the Anconetani-Arena Garibaldi Stadium, Nardini received a Nerazzurri shirt all to himself with the name Vocina printed on the back, a gift given by De Vitis, Masucci and Gucher as a last gesture of gratitude for a passion that continues to pulsate even now that Aureliano flew up there. To cheer, obviously, for his Pisa.
