Sky Original Documentary
Documents speak of a team that is sometimes divided, fragmented, with difficult, conflicting relationships, both between the players and those who guide and train them. A party, a national team, a party that opposes and fights in its own country when victory is in its hands. And despite all this, the strongest team in the world in those years. Sky Original Documentaries will air on Sky Documentary from May 14th at 9.15pm, now on demand and available on streaming. The first two episodes of the team will also be aired on Sky Sport Uno on Sunday, May 15, following the final of the Internazionale d’Italia.
A team – Italy was the losing team from 1976 to 1980. We talk about tennis and the trophy you are fighting for is the Davis Cup. The team consists of four players, four champions: Corado Barajutti, Paolo Bertolucci, Adriano Panatta, Tonino Jugarelli. They have reached the final four times in these five years, winning only against Chile in ’76. Reached the final but then lost in ’77 against Australia, in ’79 against the United States and in ’80 against Czechoslovakia. In ’76 and ’77 the team had Italian tennis legend Nicola Pietrenzelli as a non-playing captain, who retired from competitive activity just a few years ago. Pietrangelli will be sacked by his players after Australia’s ‘8 defeat. He considers it the biggest betrayal of his life.

Remarks by Roberto Pisoni, Director, Sky Entertainment Channel
“A team is a simple and brilliant idea. When Domenico Prokachi first told us about it, he immediately agreed to co-produce it. The result, more than expected, is a great story in six episodes, handled and edited with great skill, passion and humor, all contained: a complex but unique success celebration, sports epic, political history, twentieth-century Italian and international costumes, and five sensational ones. The protagonist, with very different characters on and off the pitch, but all irresistible. “
