  09/01/2012: 112. And I am still here

Yes, I am still here, despite all those who did not want me to born, for the love of the few who created me and of the many who sided with me.

I am still here, with the years of history on my skin, a worn flag with faded colors, a scarf marked by time and rain, and my symbol who keeps flying undismayed, undeterred.

I am still here, standing before many people who, as one with me, suffered and rejoiced, fought and battled, and one more time I thank them for the sacrifices made together.

I am still here, standing proud before those who used me, disowned me, and then used me again.

I am still here, since the days when I used to run on a dusty grassless field, where my memories will always live.

I am still here and I made the history of a city, divided in the colors, which I deeply love and respect, because I was born here.

I am still here, with you. You, fans of any age, any ideal, any rank. I am with those who are there, and with those who left us.

I am still here and I got only one name, only one flag, only one symbol.
My name is Società Sportiva Lazio.

(Paolo Peroso)
