1982 COPPA DEL MONDO:
In 1970, Coppa Rimet was delivered to Brazil and was kept by it permanently in recognition of its third success in the World Cup. So in April of the following year, FIFA decided to hold a new competition and design a new trophy. The winning proposal was that of the Italian sculptor Silvio Gazzaniga: "I was inspired by two basic images, one is the athlete who rejoices and the other is the image of the world." The new trophy debuted in 1974 World Cup in Germany, which was held by hands of two stylized football players. The trophy is in 18 carat solid gold, weighs 6,175 grams and is 36.8 cm high, with a base diameter of 13 cm.
Italy won the new trophy for the first time in Spain’s World Cup in 1982. After an exciting start, the team led by Enzo Bearzot suddenly defeated Argentina, Poland and Brazil, before triumphing in the final of Madrid 3-1 against West Germany, thanks to the goals of Rossi, Tardelli and Altobelli. The Spanish success took the third star to Italy in its history of World Cup.
