Football and music have always been two great popular passions.
Hymns and songs; songs dedicated to the team, to the players, to particular episodes of sports life to the choirs of the fans at the stadium.
"Semmo do Zena", was the first hymn of Genoa, sung by Mario Cappello (coauthor with Margutti of the famous song “Ma se ghe penso”) in 1931. That is followed, in 1937, by the summer season of Carlo Felice Theater with the operas Lohengrin, Tosca, Rigoletto and La Bohéme, staged on the Genoa Cricket and Football Club pitch.
There are many Genoese singers and songwriters and Genoa fans: we cannot forget, among them, to name the great Fabrizio De André.
