Italy's first museum of sport inaugurated in Turin


Turin, November 12 - Boxing gloves once owned by
Muhammad Ali are among the 300,000 pieces of memorabilia on
display at Italy's first Museum of Sports in Turin.
The museum, Italy's first permanent exhibition space
dedicated to sports souvenirs, is housed in 800 square meters of
exhibition space in Turin's Olympic Stadium.
The backbone of the exhibition comes from the massive,
private collection of sports memorabilia owned by Onorato Arisi.
"I realized my dream, to create a home for these
champions," said Arisi.
Among the memorabilia exhibited are two sets of boxing
gloves, one owned by Muhammad Ali and the other by Italian
Roberto Cammarelle, an Olympic gold medallist in the 2008 games
in Beijing.
Also on display is the vest worn by Livio Berruti when he
won a gold medal in the 200 meters at the 1960 Rome Olympics.
Other treats for sports fans are a helmet that once
belonged to late F1 legend Ayrton Senna, a tracksuit worn by
MotoGP rider Marco Simoncelli before his death in a crash last
year, and one of Diego Maradona's Napoli shirts.
Memorabilia from a total of 200 athletes - including 50
Olympic medals winners - are included in the exhibition.
