November 12, 2021 "Hello Giampiero! Thank you for having lived the sport first as an athlete and then as a journalist. Your voice, full of enthusiasm and passion, is linked to the memories of many blue emotions. I am sure that tonight the Olympic Stadium will also remember you as you deserve ". Thus the undersecretary for sport,

Valentina Vezzali

, remembers in a tweet the sports journalist of Rai and tank top Giampiero Galeazzi, who passed away today at the age of 75.



"Giampiero's Lazio faith was known to everyone, but it was never out of line. In a recent interview with Rai, tired but never surrendered to the disease, he said a simple and extraordinary phrase: 'Under the same sky, under the same flag . Come on Lazio '. One more star shines in that sky ". The Biancoceleste president,

Claudio Lotito

, thus mourns the death of Galeazzi. In a note, the Lazio number one remembers the famous journalist as "a figure inextricably linked to Italian sport: first as a victorious athlete, then as a passionate commentator and an acute and competent journalist". 



“He contributed to the development of sport in general and of tennis in the glory years. We have lost a great professional, a unique, special person, different from the others, a friend and this is the thing that hurts the most. I was lucky enough to be 'baptized' by him in the commentary booth. I remember that they were tight and between me and him we were in it sideways. With him we commented, ate and drank. It was like a picnic inside a commentary booth ”. So in LaPresse,

Paolo Bertolucci

, former 1976 Davis Cup winner, and current TV commentator.



"He left us a great professional, the voice of many Azzurri successes in Italian sport. He was a passionate fan of our national team, we remember him with great affection". The president of the FIGC,

Gabriele Gravina

, thus remembers Giampiero Galeazzi.



"

Aurelio De Laurentiis

and the whole SSC Napoli remember Giampiero Galeazzi, historical figure of Italian journalism and unforgotten narrator of the most suggestive blue enterprises". Napoli writes it on Twitter.



“When he started doing the first commentary, he came to ask me 'Nicola, how did I go?'. I replied, 'if you were quiet it was better' ".

Nicola Pietrangeli

thus reminds LaPresse of his friend. “I knew him since I was a kid - added the former Italian tennis player on the sidelines of the inauguration of the fan village of the ATP Finals in Turin - A little too many are leaving lately. In these moments one doesn't even know what to say, certainly everyone's sorry ".



"The death of Giampiero Galeazzi is shocking news, it leaves me speechless". These are the first words of

Giuseppe Abbagnale

, president of the Federcanottaggio and undisputed champion of this sport, at Adnkronos. "We were with his daughter a few days ago and we talked about him, he had left me very happy that he was recovering, but instead this news arrives. The historical voice of rowing is gone, as well as a friend and a prepared and engaging character. "added Abbagnale surprised and moved by the news.       



"There are so many anecdotes because we have shared for years the stage of sport, of rowing, especially during the Olympic Games. His interviews and his really teasing ranged from his militancy within the rowing world, to athlete, to actual voice and undisputed. This news has left me really baffled, I fail for words. I would never have wanted to receive this news, as soon as possible I will hear the family for condolences from me and the whole rowing world ", added the federal president.
