Francesco Totti was born on September 27, 1976, in Rome, Italy. Totti was born to Lorenzo and Fiorella Totti. Totti has an older brother named Riccardo Totti. Both were raised in the Porta Metronia neighborhood in Rome.
His father is a pastor who doesn’t pay much attention to their children’s careers. While his mother became an extraordinary figure who often determines where Totti must step.
His mother often drove Totti to the training camp. This greatest woman even often waited in the yard for up to two hours to accompany Totti until he finished training. Even when it was raining and snowing, his mother remained loyal to accompany him.
Since his childhood, Totti has been very fond of football. He remembered his first time getting his first ball. At that time, an old woman named Befana passed all the houses in her vicinity and left gifts to every child who behaved well. When many of his friends got candy, Totti got a ball from Befana.
He felt happy and often slept with his favorite object.
Even though little Totti really liked football, he didn’t watch football matches very often on TV as there was rarely a football channel in Rome at that time. When he was 7 years old, he remembered when he was invited by his father to the Stadio Olimpico.
Totti said that it was his best experience. He could not watch football on television but could attend the stadium directly.
This fan of Giuseppe Giannini started his football career at the age of 8 years. After playing with his neighbors on the streets near his home, Totti joined Fortitude.
In 1989, Totti began to join the AS Roma academy. At that time, other big teams like AC Milan were also very interested in Totti’s talents, but due to his mother’s advice, Totti preferred to have his career in AS Roma.
For your information, Lazio, which is AS Roma’s eternal rival, also really wanted to recruit Totti. However, again, his mother played an important role in determining Totti’s steps. She firmly refused and told Totti to stay focused on Rome.
After undergoing training and various matches with the AS Roma academy, Totti began to be promoted to the main team on 28 March 1993. At that time, Totti was just about to turn 17 years old. Two years after debut, Totti entered the regular team. During this period, Totti scored 16 goals and became an important part of the capital team.

In 1998, Francesco Totti entered the Gli Azzurri squad which competed in the European Cup qualifier. Two years later, by the time the tournament was held, Totti scored two goals for the Italian national team and managed to bring his country to reach the final, although, in the end, they lost to France.
At the 2002 World Cup, Totti was unable to score a goal after Italy was controversially eliminated in the last 16.
Returning to Rome in 2001, Totti helped his beloved club to become The Serie A’s champion. He successfully scored 8 goals and returned the Serie A trophy to Roma after 18 years.
Four years later, Totti continued to be an important part of Rome even though he was unable to donate any trophies. Had been once asked to join Real Madrid, Totti remained loyal to the capital team and refused the offer that came directly from the Madrid president.
In 2004, Totti entered the Italian squad which competed in the European Cup despite having to get a ban for playing after being involved in a conflict when dealing with Denmark. Two years later, Totti became one of the happiest Italians because he was able to bring Gli Azzurri to become a world champion held in Germany.
