Another mourning in the world of sports journalism. Another historical face of the 90th minute that goes away. The Piedmontese journalist Beppe Barletti died at the age of 92, who in the golden years of the broadcast conducted by Paolo Valenti followed the events of Juventus and Turin. With a note on its website, the Torino Football Club expresses deep condolences for the disappearance of Beppe Barletti, historical Rai journalist and passionate witness of Turin football. Barletti was above all a sports journalist, but not only. Celebrate his connections from Turin, where with typical Savoy aplomb he told the story of Juventus and Turin. In Rai, where he had landed following a long apprenticeship, he also dealt with motoring, athletics and basketball, but was also the author of reports from abroad or of news and political reports. His interviews also included that of cardiac surgeon Chris Barnard. A former journalist, in the best sense of the expression, until recently he was a permanent presence at Sporting, the Turin press club.
18 hours: when Italy was in front of the TV for 90 minutes
After those who were the protagonists of the historical Rai program, that is Maurizio Barendson first and Paolo Valenti then, we are left with another of the protagonists of what is considered a TV transmission to be identified, for example, of the way of doing sports journalism, for the familiarity and the good-natured disenchantment with which he managed to enter the homes of the Italians to provide them with the first images of the Sunday afternoon games. The envoys from the camps were often called upon to improvise and in this, as in the case of Barletti, all their professionalism was seen. In 2018 another known face of the transmission was already missing, that is Luigi Necco, while shortly after the historical correspondent from Genoa Giorgio Bubba was missing.
