Giuseppe Rossi at SU Florence!

323258_heroaIn collaboration with the Giuseppe Rossi Fan Club NY, Syracuse University Florence will host an event celebrating the release of American-born Italian national soccer team player Giuseppe Rossi’s, new book “A Modo Mio (“My Way”),” a collection of Rossi’s personal stories.

The event will be hosted on Tuesday, December 2 at Syracuse University Florence. The events of the evening will include:

  • Press conference with Giuseppe Rossi from 5:45-6:30
  • Presentation of the book to all members of SU Florence, the Fan Club, and the ACF Fiorentina from 6:30-7:45
  • Book Signing at Syracuse University from 7:30 on

“My Way” is a book that describes a continuous journey of one man through various countries and cultures; of an American who at the same time identifies as an Italian. It tells of the talent and mindset, the complications and determination, the imagination and hard work of a champion who draws on a stock of metaphorical weapons in order to overcome personal misfortune. To become stronger than injuries, stronger than pain, stronger than discouragement, stronger than ever before.

Rossi, age 27, was born in Teaneck, New Jersey to Italian parents. At 12, he moved to Parma, Italy with his father to begin his youth club career. After stints with Manchester United and Newcastle United in the British Premier League and Villareal in the Spanish La Liga, Rossi returned to Italy and signed with Fiorentina in January 2013. Rossi made his international debut for the Italian national team in October 2008. He has scored seven goals in 30 appearances for the Azzurri.
