Bologna & Torino- South American Tour, 1929

0
0

Just 3 weeks after the decisive play off match that closed the 1928-29 Italian season, champions Bologna and runners up Torino were in South America on tour. The 2 squads sailed together from Genoa on the Conte Rosso.
The 2 sides had shared 205 goals during the domestic league season, Torino's Trio of Wonders (Rossetti, Libonatti and Baloncieri) scoring 89 between them. 
Following such an arduous season it is perhaps unsurprising that neither side was spectacular on tour. In fact one Torino historian went as far as to describe the excursion as a 'celebratory holiday'. 
 Bologna bolstered their ranks with guests:


Bologna-Gianni, Monzeglio, Gasperi, Genovesi, Baldi, Pitto, Martelli, Schiavio, Busini , Muzzioli (Bologna); Compiani, Tansini (Milan); Dugoni (Modena) Ferrari,  Banchero (Alessandria), Magnozzi (Livorno) , Costantino ( Bari).



I don't know the composition of the Torino squad, but among the tourists was  Roma's Rudolfo Volk, a future Capocannoniere.
Torino's Libonatti faced both his former club (Newell's Old Boys) and his former national team (Argentina).
