When the World Cup trophy was hidden in a shoe box
In the year 1938, when the FIFA World Cup was played in France under the shadow of World War, everyone was living in fear. This World Cup was won by Italy, who defeated Hungary in the final. When Italy got the World Cup trophy, it was kept safe in the Roman Bank. But meanwhile the world war started, in such a situation there was a fear of getting robbed in the bank.

At that time Ortino Barasi, the Vice President of the Italian Football Federation, took the trophy out of the bank and took it to his home. There he kept it in a shoe box and hid it under the bed. This was done because Germany had attacked at that time and the fighters were looting everywhere. It was claimed that some soldiers of the German army had even knocked on Barasi’s house, but failed to get the trophy. Barasi later handed over the trophy to FIFA officials.
