FIFA Fever

Giuseppe di Virgilio, a Neapolitan artist who is known in Naples for his statuettes of the Christian Nativity scene, shows a statuette of Argentinian soccer team’s head coach Diego Maradona.



Virgilio made this to celebrate the soccer legend who was behind Argentina’s World Cup win in 1986. It was in a quarter final match against England in this World Cup that he scored the famous Hand of God goal.
