 "It was a long journey in Alessandria, where they saved dad's life. From today this journey will continue in Lombardy, but we will never forget everything they did for my father and the support they gave us too".


Andrea Tacconi,

on social media, communicates and informs about the conditions of father Stefano.

The former national team and Juventus goalkeeper left - almost a year after falling ill in Asti (April 2022), the Alessandria hospital to finish the last phase of rehabilitation in another facility closer to home.

He had been transferred to Alexandria following a cerebral hemorrhage from a ruptured aneurysm.

    "The road is still long, but as I have always done I will keep you informed", assures Andrea Tacconi.

Just a few days ago, still at the Borsalino Centre, Tacconi was portrayed in a photo, again by his son Andrea, while he was busy signing some copies of the book 'Stefano Tacconi Junic'.

    "We came here from another region and now the Borsalino Center has entered our heart and soul. Thanks to all the staff of the Hospital, to that of the Borsalino and especially to the physiotherapist Laura who followed us from first to "last day.

Upon arrival at the facility, he was breathing via tracheostomy and ventilator support, as well as being enterally fed and hydrated.

His recovery was also achieved thanks to the constant presence and active collaboration of the family.

"They helped us understand who Stefano was and how he should be taken care of for a correct personalized treatment. In particular, his wife Laura and son Andrea indirectly became part of the team".
