Remembering Piero Pastore

Pietro Mario Pastore, also known as Piero Pastore was born on March 3, 1903 in Padua, Veneto, Italy. Piero was an Italian professional soccer player and later turned to acting. He was the youngest player to ever play for Juventus F.C. at the age of 15 years, 222 days. Pastore represented Italy at the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam and won a bronze medal (even though he did not play in any games). He played for 6 seasons (108 games, 46 goals) in the Serie A for S.S. Lazio, A.C. Milan and A.S. Roma. After retirement, he became an actor, among other roles, he played small parts in “Roman Holiday”, and “Barabbas” (both 1953) and “War and Peace” (1956) and his only Euro-western “The Kid of the West” (1942). Pastore died in Rome on January 8, 1968. Today we remember Piero Pastore on what would have been his 110th birthday.
