The coach of Hungarian origin Árpád Weisz (1896-1944) won one League championship with the Ambrosiana team of Milan (1929-1930) and two with the Bologna team (1935-1937). In October 1938 he was brutally dismissed and, as a Jewish foreigner, forced to leave the country in 1939. After he had found a new job in Holland, he was deported to Auschwitz with his wife and two children in 1942. None of them returned.
The photographs show him in the 1920s and in 1936 – first standing left – on the day of the victory with the Bologna team.
