Revived from the archives for a new generation, PUMA Football has created a green kit for Italy’s national team which takes inspiration from the Renaissance period to celebrate the New Wave of talent rising to prominence in Italy on and off the pitch.

Featuring patterns inspired by Renaissance-era fabrics and architecture, the kit’s green color dates back to the ‘Maglia Verde’ (green jersey) worn during the Azzurri’s 2-0 win against Argentina in December 1954 at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico.
Historically the full national team used the green jersey for only one game, but the youth teams subsequently adopted the color as their home kit. The iconic Azzurri blue remained exclusive to the full national team and was used as motivation for youth players to earn the right to wear the jersey.
The new jersey features an all-over Renaissance-inspired graphic – a celebration of Italy’s culture past, present and future. The kit is part of a larger Renaissance graphic collection created for the Italian Football Federation to make waves both on the pitch and the street.
