Cremona stopped at midday to remember Gianluca Vialli.
In fact, city mourning was announced in the city, with a minute's silence at 12. The employees and municipal administrators observed it in the Federico II courtyard of the Palazzo Comunale while the tolling of the bell of the Civic Tower rang out.

Instead, a memorial mass is scheduled for this evening at 18:30 in the parish of Christ the King.
The church of Cristo Re is the parish of the neighborhood where Vialle grew up, right next to the football field of the oratory, the scene of his first exploits.
There could be the coach of the national team, twin of Vialli's goal in Sampdoria and also in blue, Roberto Mancini.
There is Roberto Bettega, a former Juventus and national striker and Juventus manager who, with Vialli as captain, won the Champions Cup.
