You either love soccer or you hate it, and Bergamo loves it. Atalanta is the city's team, a small football club that has always fought against the giants of Serie A, with stellar budgets and formations composed of great champions.
This small team, which represents a city of only 120,000 inhabitants, in recent years has been competing at an international level against the behemoths of the sport.
The values embodied in the team are the same that the entire city shares in everyday life, unity and solidarity.
Values represented by the now famous motto #molamia (don't give up), which has become sadly known for what happened in the city during the first phase of the pandemic, when Bergamo made the headlines as the city hardest hit in Europe with Covid-19.
But that motto has also become the emblem of a city that resists, united and supportive.
