Each semester, Syracuse Florence students compete against other American study abroad students in a calcetto (five-on-five soccer) tournament. The Fall 2017 team came in first in the 25th edition of the Fiorenza International School Cup! Alessandro Pugliese, the captain of the team, won MVP of the tournament.
A big thank you goes to Alessandro and Taylor Watson, who was captain of the second Syracuse team. On behalf of all the players, a very special thank you to Coach Alessandro Verri, who helped guide them to victory! Forza ‘Cuse!
