Following in the footsteps of Brazilian referee and model Ana Paula Oliveira, a group of Italian referees had the courage to pose half-naked for a 2015 calendar. Five referees from San Giovanni Valdarno, a city located in the Tuscany region, were models for a photo exhibition showing the other side of their work.
With balls, whistles, flags and cards, they posed in a fun way for the lenses of the Italian photographer Paul Melani, responsible for the exhibition opened last month. The proceeds from the sale of photos and calendars will serve as financial support for the activities of the local referees.
