HERE ARE THE NEW 2022/23 KAPPA JERSEYS FOR PALERMO FC
The presentation of all the Sponsors and of the Kombat ™ Match Kits for the 2022-2023 season took place this evening at Palazzo Chiaramonte-Steri, the institutional headquarters of the University of Palermo. The kits were created in collaboration with the agency Gomez & Mortisia from Palermo, the designer Luca D'Agostino, the Kappa R&D center and with the special participation of TvBoy, one of the most famous street artists in the world, who was inspired by the Patroness of Palermo, Santa Rosalia.
Thanks to the collaboration of the scientific coordinator of the Palermo Museum Giovanni Tarantino, the path started in 2019 continues, which combines elements of the club's more than one-hundred-year history and choices devoted to innovative design. After last year's two-tone, full pink returns for 22/23 with black references. The main uniform model for the 2022-23 season features a wide collar held together by laces that recall vintage aesthetics - in particular models used in the late 1950s, when the Favorita got blown away by the supporters at every goal scored by Ghito Vernazza. By contrast, the historical component of the collar meets the modern one of the texture of the jersey: a "glitch" effect that breaks down and mixes different shades of pink, with a nod to digital technology. Once again, this jersey is therefore a bridge between past and future.
The second jersey is a tribute to the presidency of Renzo Barbera and in particular to the 1973-74 Palermo team which from Serie B, with a memorable ride, reached the final of the Italian Cup then lost on penalties against Bologna. In that season, Palermo wore the so-called braced jersey: pink with two black straps on the left side and two on the right side. This time, same model but in inverted colors: black with two pink straps on the right and two black ones on the left. A reference, moreover, to the goalkeeper's shirt, dressed among others by Angelo Bellavia, and by Giuseppe Governale, brigadier general of the Carabinieri, former goalkeeper of the rosanero youth, who donated his shirt to the Palermo Museum.
The third jersey is an absolute novelty, created thanks to the design created ad hoc by the Italian artist TvBoy, one of the most famous street artists in the world, who was inspired by the Patroness of Palermo, Santa Rosalia. The skull and roses, emblems of the religious figure, are inserted in a context of ornamental motifs in the Baroque style, a real cult in the Sicilian capital and classic iconographic elements of the figure of the Saint.
A uniform totally inspired by the soul of both Palermo and the Palermitans, to further increase the team's already strong bond with the territory and to increase the sense of belonging of a squad with great ambitions. For the occasion, the artist also created a mural with his famous ROSALIA in the tunnel of the Renzo Barbera stadium.
The jerseys were presented with a special photo shoot, signed by the photographer Tullio Puglia, which portrays the Palermo players in front of the Barbera graffiti, recalling the atmospheres of street culture and the world of hip hop through a special light design.
The 2022-2023 sponsors stand out on the new Kombat ™ Match Kits, thanks to the partnership with INFRONT Italy for the exclusive management of all the marketing rights of the Pinkblack team, both for the national territory and for the international one.
