The highly inspirational autobiography of Sara Gama, captain of the Italian and Juventus women’s teams, who endeavours to create a new path particularly for the girls who, like her, love to play the game but haven’t been able to do so without facing prejudices and difficulties.
To mark International Women’s day in 2018, Mattel included her as the only Italian in a group of 17 international females who have been able to become a source of inspiration for girls of the future, and honoured her with a Barbie doll depicting her features. In 2019, Forbes included her in a list composed of the 100 most influential Italian women.
