Alessandro Buongiorno represents a new generation of Italian football by combining technical ability with a charismatic style of leadership. Buongiorno recently sat down for an interview with NSS magazine to discuss his journey from the streets of Turin to the captain of Torino FC, highlighting his play style, leadership, and outlook on his future in football.


Alessandro Buongiorno, a native of northern Italian city Turin, has become a prominent talent within Italian football. As the captain of Torino FC, his technical skills and budding leadership qualities have made him one of the standout young players in Serie A. Buongiorno’s connection to his home city, as well as the structure of Turin itself, have profoundly influenced his career and personal style. “What I like about Turin is that the city has a human scale, is not too big and chaotic, but offers everything you need,” Buongiorno says. The stable environment within Turin has helped him develop a balanced approach to both life and football.

Buongiorno’s leadership on the field mirrors his composed and dedicated character off the pitch. From his early days in the first team, he began to mature as both a footballer and leader. “My maturity and leadership qualities are, I think, an innate quality that I had to work on when I was younger”.

There is nothing better.”
