SUBBUTEOPIA, THE DOCUMENTARY
Subbuteo is the legendary table-soccer game that had 10 million excited players during the 70s and 80s, all around the world. But, at the beginning of the 3nd Millenium, the American multinational company Hasbro, owner of the Subbuteo brand (and second in the world with more than 4 billion dollars of sales), decided to stop the production of the game.
For Subbuteo players it could be the end of their passion...
But two Italian brothers, Arturo and Giovanni Battista Parodi, do not accept what seems to be an inescapable decision. They have a small company with seven employees in the North of Italy and, together with their father Edilio, were one of the main distributors of Subbuteo in Europe since 1971. The Parodi Brothers took the decision to challenge the American company on its same field, toy stores, and to go on with the production and distribution of the legendary game.
It is David against Goliath, once again.
Thanks to the two Italian brothers (and not only) Subbuteo doesn’t die: in 2010, there are again millions of amateur players and also competitive tournaments in more of 30 different countries all around the world (Europe, USA, Singapore, Argentina, Canada, South Africa…).
