The away end of Pescara’s Stadio Adriatico has been named after Piermario Morosini a year on from the Livorno player’s death here.
On April 14 2012 Pescara were playing against Livorno in a Serie B game when Morosini collapsed and his heart stopped. An autopsy found an undiscovered heart defect.
Today the Mayor of Pescara Luigi Albore Mascia unveiled a plaque in the stadium dedicated to Morosini and the away end has been named after him.
“We do not want to forget that dramatic day that struck Pescara and the entire country. We wanted something to remain that would show the affection for an unlucky boy who left us all too soon.”
Udinese-owned midfielder Morosini died at the age of 26.
