Franco Gallini

Gallini Cup is organized in order to honor the memory of Franco Gallini, a manager of Pordenone Calcio, that died prematurely in March 2002. 
During his life he saw many people suffering for illnesses, and this pain inspired him to create the NGO Via di Natale ONLUS. With the help of many volunteers, he created a Home to assist terminally ill cancer patients and to support their families during this hard period. This Home is still operating in Aviano, near the Oncological Reference Center.
His funeral toke place the same day of the final of a football tournament created a few years earlier by Tiziano Cornacchia. 

The political institutions of Pordenone, together with Franco’s family, showed a willingness to dedicate a big event to him.
It was on this occasion that Tiziano Cornacchia, founder of the tournament and friend of Franco’s family since his militancy in Pordenone Calcio, accepted this assignment. 
A task that he continues to carry out today, to promote the important values of sport, remembering who spent his life building a better world.
