Finally, world-wide football fans and English language readers can discover the fascinating 100-year legend of the glorious Italian soccer team called Torino.

The preface has been written by the club's President, Urbano Cairo.
More than a football team, Toro is a way of life, a value, an ideal that expands beyond the pitch, a ceaseless defiance against destiny. There are many more clubs which are easier to cheer for, but the Toro fan doesn’t expect an easy life. In fact, the Toro fan takes his strength precisely from the adversities that stud the club’s history, because there’s something special in his DNA: the will to never give up and to always give his best, which is exactly the first thing we expect from those who wear that jersey. For us, displaying this huge fighting spirit, this pride, the legendary “Granata heart,” is as important (if not more important) than securing the victory. If you understand and accept that, the Granata colour will penetrate naturally under your skin, along with its immense load of history and values.
Welcome to the Granata legend. Definitely more - much more - than the simple history of a football team.
