In backyards, dirt lots and even in the middle of city streets, children around the planet practice and dream about becoming the next Rossi, Pelé, Maradona or Falcao in the world’s most popular sport.

Re-live the magical, heart-stopping moments of the game’s incredible history in this loving tribute to Paolo Rossi and to a sport so many millions love across the globe. Vintage championship footage and first-hand accounts by the greatest players themselves are beautifully woven into a touching and exciting story of Rossi’s ups and downs in the context of shocking world events.

As Football (soccer) has evolved into a billion-dollar business, this film powerfully reminds you that dreams can come true when you follow rule #1: never give up!

Under the patronage of the United Nations, on January 18th 2021, the feature documentary “Paolo Rossi – A Champion is a Dreamer Who Never Gives Up” has been awarded with the “The Global Sport and Peace Award”.
