Italian Football League expansion (whole league sum up)

Well, Verona, the city of Romeo and Juliet, is the first big city near lake Garda. This lake is Italy biggest one, so, why not to call a team from the city the Lakers? Lake Garda is well known for its blue deep waters and its green and fertile shores. The most iconic tree that grows on the shores is the cypress, that is why I used it so much in this concept.

The third jersey would represent the lake environment with the green of the jersey and the blue of pants. The gold design on the side of the pant is a stair, the symbol of the city, as the ruling family in medieval times was the Della Scala family. Della Scala means "of the stair" in italian so you can guess what was their araldic symbol...

The landscape sublimated on the jersey is a typical lakeside landscape, with cypresses and the "Rocca di Garda"(Garda mount), with its particular lines, standing near the lake.

I would like to change something on the topic title, but I can't find out how to do it... Can anybody help me?

Red, light blue and an elephant are main symbols from Catania coat of arms. These representative city symbols have been used many times in the city sportive history, first of all in Catania F.C. crest. Being these colors so unique I've decided to keep with the tradition and to call the team the Elephants. Another important city symbol is mount Etna, Italy highest volcano, with its ever-white top, so I decided to add it to the identity with an elephant related element, tusks.

Catania is a sea city but it is strongly related also with Mount Etna, a mount so big and high but yet so near the sea, Which creates a unique landscape (somehow similar to Tokyo!). This third jersey symbolizes the blue of the sea, the volcanic stone and the white of the snow near the city.

You could at first sight think of a copycat of the New Orleans Saints, but the Padova Saints are a team with a same name and a same logo but with different background.

First of all they are called Saints because Padova is well known for Saint Anthony from Padova (who was actually from Lisbon...), the saint friar that died in the city during medieval times. For this reason the city is quite a place to go on a pilgrimage, with its big cathedral and old churches. So there is a reason why they are called Saints...

Secondly, Saint Anthony's holy symbol (or should we say logo...) is the lily flower, which happened to be exactly the fleur de lys... 

Coincidences? Don't think so...a team from Padova deserved to be branded that way!

The main difference with the New Orleans team is the color scheme. Padova has Gold and Brown as these are the colors of the monks robe.

There is nothing really extraordinary about the alternate uniform of the team, the only peculiar feature is the shoulder patch which includes the two vatican keys under a football to represent the bond between Padova and Rome.

Not very much to say about this concept as it is really traditional... a special fleur de lys has been Florence logo since medieval times when this rich city was ruled by the Guelphs, who supported the pope, while the Ghibellines (for example in Siena) supported the emperor. These two factions had been in war for centuries and they are part of the city folk pride in many italian cities. The color scheme is not really different from the one of Fiorentina F.C.

The alternate jersey features the florentinian fleur de lys as a shoulder patch on a all silver look to remind us of medieval armors and knights who fought for their ideals and to defend their cities all over Italy.

Palermo is a city where history is in layers, in every corner you can see something from the roman, arabic, norman or spanish domination period. Wandering around in this unique history and culture mix, the aspect I like the most is the re-use of pubblic buildings. You can see churches, which used to be mosques, where the floor and walls are still of ceramic mosaic with arab words. These mosaics are very common in islamic decorative art and are well known for the bold colors.

All this introduction was to explain you what exactly is the primary logo of the Palermo Saracens. It should be a mosaic design of the eight-pointed star, a very common motive in islamic art, with two scimitars underneath to simbolize the warrior soul of the saracens. I was forgetting to say that Saracens is the word used for muslim raiders from northen Africa in medieval times. Luckily Saracens built many beautiful buildings in Palermo instead of raiding it. 

The color scheme is based on the brilliant colors usually used in arabic ceramic mosaics.

Glad to bring you the Bolzano Bears, the echo of the wild!

I thought that bears was an appropriate name for a team from Bolzano, a town in the middle of the tyrolian alps, as nature is, without a doubt, its strong point. Bears are not common in that part of the alps, still there are some.

The color scheme reminds me of the brown of bear fur, the green of the woods around Bolzano and the orange of the particular rocks color of those mighty mountains. Bear scratches are widely used in this concept.

The alternate jersey is dedicated to a bear, named Pippo, who lived for many years in Bolzano zoo.

I'm glad to present you the Taranto Spartans!

Ancient greek tradition and anchestry is something really common in southern Italy where many of today town were founded by the greek folk millenia ago. Taranto was a special one , being settled by spartans as their only colony. In the old city you can still see the marks left by greek and romans.

The color scheme is based on the city coat of arms color scheme. The helmet was especiallty designed by me, it is not a logo rip off, I just wanted to specify it as it is quite similar to all the loads of ancient greek helmet logos over there. My effort was to try to design a real historical helmet.

The third kit features the sublimated jupiter's temple columns which are a city symbol and an all golden look to remind the bronze armours of the spartans soldiers.

From the charming city of Venice here you have Venezia Lions.

The lion theme and the colour scheme is taken from the ancient venetian republic flag. Instead of holding a book as the one on the flag, their winged lion is holding a football ball.

The third kit was deigned to show the pride of being venetian. On the shoulder you have a venetian flag patch and, on the sides, the striping should hint a lion tail.

The city of Bergamo is known in Italy for being the hometown of many between the 1000 patriots commanded by Garibaldi who freed the southern part of Italy in 1860 during the italian independence war. These patriots were also called the Red Shirts (or jackets) as they all wore those as a uniform. This is why I decided to name the team from Bergamo the Red Jackets.

This is also why my red jacket patriot looks a bit like dear Flying Elvis from NE Patriots. The color scheme is based off the red of the shirts, the blue of the Savoia royal family for who the patriots fought for and the silver of swords and rifles.

It is the moment for Lazio Sea Eagles. This team is the first of the only two regional teams in the IFL as Lazio stands for the whole region surrounding Rome. They will be playing in Ostia, by the sea, near Rome. The mix between the eagle, a truly roman symbol, and the sea made me choose the sea eagle identity for the team. The eagle was a sign of power and victory in Ancient Rome, as you can make out from the really spread out use of this symbol in italian and european sports teams. The color scheme was thought out of the real sea eagle feather colors (black and white) with the adding of the blue of the tyrrenian sea.

Ciao! 
So here's my opinion about all of it: First, thank you, pretty cool idea and good execution. A few little things, for the
- Sea Eagles: First logo seems to look backwards and is missing dynamic, the fourth is awesome! But the outlining of the numbers don't work

- Bergamo: <3 fantastic, matching a fantastic, the best, city!

- Venezia: What else than this is possible? Nothing. And the flag, really good. One thing is the lion as first logo that sadly doesn't look as majestic as the rest

- Padova, Bolzano, Palermo, Taranto, Milano, Torino (this gear!) - nice!
- Val d'Aosta: sadly this region isn't germanophone but french - so either "Capricorns" (https://www.facebook.com/BadTolzCapricorns/) or french "Bouquetins" (if you want to keep the german the matching form would be Stoabeck (Steinböcke - correct plural form, Stoabeck dialectal plural)

Sadly I can't see your all of your pictures anymore somehow the images seem to be broken...

 

Keep on doing, really good!
Saluti del altro parte delle Alpi!
