ROME – Luciano Moggi, a former Juventus executive radiated for life for the Calciopoli scandal, was awarded on March 23rd in the Zuccari hall of Palazzo Madama, that is, in the building that houses the Senate of the Republic. The awarding of the career award was given by the Committee of the Order of the Golden Lion of Venice. The news – among the first to disclose it by the journalist of Mediaset Maurizio Pistocchi on Twitter – could not fail to arouse controversy, sarcasm and a certain indignation.
Moggi was renounced for life by the Federal Court of the FIGC before the verdict was confirmed in 2018 by the State Council: in 2006 the Calciopoli scandal exploded with its sports trial that ended with the relegation to Serie B of Juventus. Only the prescription saved the controversial manager – certainly skilled, but alien to any scruple, especially in the conditioning of the arbitrators – from the conviction in criminal proceedings with the grave accusation of criminal association.
One wonders then what career has been rewarded, what luster has brought Big Luciano to football or to Italian entrepreneurship (for the little that one can understand the prize goes to entrepreneurs who illustrate the national history) apart, of course, to close the referees in the dressing rooms: "in 100 years of football, no one had managed to make Juventus go back to Serie B. Goodnight, "writes Pistocchi caustic. That the Golden Lion Committee is not a conventicle that brings together an anti-Juve interist, Romanist, Neapolitan and Florentine network? (source Fanpage )
