This is the kind of stat that makes you look really old. But the main person is getting used to it. Gianluigi Buffon, the sixth Coppa Italia winner on Wednesday, achieved the title victory with Chiesa’s father and son, with Enrico in 1999 with Parma and then with Federico this season with Juventus.

“Before the match, I said to him: Gigi, you won a lot of titles, but I remind you that you won it with my father. Tonight, let’s try to win it together,” he smiled into the microphone of Ray Federico Chiesa, who scored the decisive goal in the second half against Atalanta Bergamo (2 -1) on Wednesday in Reggio Emilia. “And we succeeded! I have no words, Buffon will miss a lot.”

The last challenge next season?

Gianluigi Buffon, 43, was honored to lift the trophy after the match. The Italian legend announced his departure at the end of the season last week and gave himself time to think before a possible final adventure.

“It was a very strong final, Atalanta was a great final. But Juventus have a lot of experience and we have shown it by bringing back a very important cup.”
