British communities brought rugby to Genoa. This was between 1890 and 1895. The society that organised the first games dissolved soon after them.

Italian rugby’s traditional heartland consists of the small country towns in the Po Valley. And other parts of Northern Italy. Some believe that Italian workers returning from France. Introduced the game and gave it a significant rural and working-class base. This still exists in towns such as Treviso and Rovigo. A demonstration game was also played in 1910 in Turin. This was between SCUF and Servette of Geneva teams.

Manufacturing

Manufactured from satin touch 100% cotton, the Italy Rugby Union Shirt Vintage features detailed embroidery of the original badge. Also, it matches the inner placket, cuffs, and collar, herringbone detail on vents, and velvet tape on the neck opening. In addition, there is a complex ‘8’ applique patch on the back. More so, it consists of the subtle Ellis Rugby branding on the collar stand. It has a tone on a logo on the arm.

Along with the Vintage Shirt, we also off a Vintage Italy Rugby Union Polo Shirt and Retro Italy Rugby Union T-Shirt.
