1932, Fascist era. In Milan, a group of girls decided to found the Gruppo Femminile Calcistico, Italy's first women's team. Fascism supported the initiative. They could train, but not play in public. They had to use a rubber ball and not a leather one, wear skirts not shorts, pass the ball only at ground level. Their adventure lasted almost a year. On the eve of their first official match, the regime forced them to stop playing
