Father and son, Stefano and Cristiano, were killed in a scooter accident while driving home from A.S. Roma‘s Champions League game. Stefano and Cristiano were devoted fans to the game and to their team.
Their tragic deaths left Stefano’s wife, Luana, a widow and their young daughter Michelle, without a brother.
That’s when Luana and her daughter received an invitation to A.S. Roma’s next game. When they arrived, they found every Roma player and staff member was wearing a t-shirt with a photo of Stefano and Cristiano on it — a photo that had been taken at the last game they saw.
