Filming 11+ promo clip with Pagliuca and Signori

With my friend Cony von Grebel, and thanks to the organization of Claudio Carlotti (Rehab & Fitness coach at ISOKINETIC) we were able to collect promotional material for the planned 11+ documentary. Former „azzurri“ international goalkeeper Gianluca Pagliuca and left winger Giuseppe Signori gave us interviews and showed again some of their great football skills on a training field at ISOKINETIC, Via Casteldebole, Bologna, Italy (11/4/11).

Two national players of the Italian women’s national team (Daniela Tavalazzi and Cristina Cassanelli) also participated to the filming with us in Bologna.
