Hellas Verona President Maurizio Setti gave an honorary jersey to a pizza delivery rider who was slashed in the face when trying to defend a teenage girl from attack.

The 21-year-old man, Michele Dal Forno, had just made a pizza delivery when he saw a 16-year-old girl trying to get away from two teenage boys.

When he intervened to help her, the attacker slashed him in the face with a knife, leaving a cut that required over 60 stitches and sliced off part of his nose.

The 21-year-old man, Michele Dal Forno, had just made a pizza delivery when he saw a 16-year-old girl trying to get away from two teenage boys.

When he intervened to help her, the attacker slashed him in the face with a knife, leaving a cut that required over 60 stitches and sliced off part of his nose.

Dal Forno has become a local hero, given the medal of freedom for the city of Verona and circa €70,000 was raised on social networking sites to help fund medical costs and his studies.

Today, he also received a special edition personalised Hellas Verona jersey from President Setti.

“I certainly don’t feel like a hero, but I do know that I’d do it again,” said Dal Forno.

“If someone vulnerable needs help, it is right to intervene.”
