A fine can not hinder an act of spontaneous and genuine joy. Pallotta dives in the fountain, a gesture of extreme social importance.
Although his statements have been misunderstood several times, yesterday James Pallotta has given vent to all his passion for this city and his team. His gesture in the center of Rome represents the most beautiful thing he has done so far. He finally got closer to the fans, to share with them a special day. In a recent interview, the mayor of Rome, Virginia Raggi, praised the performance of the Giallorossi and gently announced that albeit she understands the excitement for this heroic feat the Roma president will be fined for having dived into the fountain at Piazza del Popolo.
A sporting miracle that will remain in the history of football. A legendary performance against the world’s greatest player and the team that for a decade has written epic pages of international football.
A few days ago, Charlie Stillitano stated, “James must understand the fans and they have to do the same with him.” Yesterday, the two sides got closer and shared the joy for a historic qualification for the Champions League semi-finals. The President was extremely involved even during the match. Pallotta was dangling and walking nervously on the stands at the Stadio Olimpico while the gladiators were torturing the Spanish prey on the field.
The passion of Rome is engaging and Pallotta is building a new human relationship with his people.
