The color symbolizes the Mediterranean blue. The national team is one of powerful national teams in the world which has got four titles of FIFA World Cup and one title of European Football Championship.
The strong team plays its home games at Stadio Olimpico that is also the home stadium of Serie A clubs Lazio and Roma.
