Baggio Takes Flight

Italy’s national airline, ITA Airways, dedicates a plane to Roberto Baggio, Italian soccer legend and longtime SGI member. The only Italian to score in three World Cups, Baggio is widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time. His journey is chronicled in the Netflix documentary Baggio: The Divine Ponytail. As an homage to his Buddhist practice, Nam-myoho-renge-kyo is stitched on the headrest of the aircraft’s seats.
