Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In the 2006 World Cup final, Italy were losing against France 1-0. In a moment of agitation, Zinedine Zidane, hero of the French national team, reacted to a verbal provocation from the Italian defender Materazzi by giving him a headbutt right in the chest. A furious gesture, the violation of the inviolable. The chest of man. The chest of the sportsman, the warrior, the hero; the chest of God. The point that symbolizes strength and protects the heart. Strength, beauty, and prowess have been concentrated at this point ever since ancient times.
