It's been a really amazing and busy last 48 hours. Here are some highlights:  

  • We've visited Herbert's grave on the 100th anniversary of his death. 
  • We watched AC Milan win against Juventus for the first time in 6 years. 
  • We briefly met Franco Baresi in a Vodafone shop (seriously!!) 
  • We interviewed Daniele Massaro to go alongside the interview we've already done with Giovanni Lodetti. There are now some genuine AC Milan legends on board with our project.

Herbert was being honoured simultaneously in both Milan and Nottingham as back home the Sheriff of Nottingham, our friend Andy Black and others celebrated outside his old house on Mansfield Road. The even managed to get the brand spanking new Herbert Kilpin bus to turn up.

 We also reached our initial Kickstarter goal on the day it was all focused around. Amazing times. However, we don't want to stop there. The more money we raise the better we can make this production and the more people we can get it out to. So we're going to announce some stretch goals over the next few days (when we get back to England) and some exciting and very exclusive new rewards too. Keep your eyes peeled for those.

Forza Milan!
