Published by the Italian Football Federation, the programme comprises 64 pages and numerous fascinating illustrations including venues, teams et al.

According to the condition report, the programme has some stains and speckles on its covers - but nevertheless remains a very scarce and valuable piece of football history.

Other highlights at Mullocks will include an Australian Cricket Green Baggy international cap with embroidered Australian crest, issued to captain Kim Hughes.
