What fantastic photos from a fantastic area. As my father is Italian I spend a lot of holidays in Italy, in Lucca in Toscany exactly where he was born. But I also saw a lot of other places off course.
Absolute highlight for me was seeing AC Milan in San Siro several times when the Brigate Rossonere and Fossa dei Leonitheir Ultra groups were at their peak and had about 10k members. Their choreos and their organised support for the team is something I have never experienced again in this form. Incredible.
Your comment about the Italian youth in the eighties being stylish is spot on. Never saw so much well dressed people all over the place again. The pics you posted really give an impression of the Italian teenagers of that time and their dress sense. Though these are all fashion shots arranged by professional stylists it is not so much removed from eighties street style in Italy.
Funny you mention particular Best Company of all the brands. Their sweatshirts were obligatory for football dressers in Germany in the late 80s and early 90s. Together with Chevignon jackets and New Balance trainers this was the most popular terraces fashion.
