Francesco Totti is an Italian former professional footballer who played for Roma and the Italy national team. He is referred to as Er Bimbo de Oro, L'Ottavo Re di Roma, Er Pupone, Il Capitano, Il Gladiatore by the Italian sports media, he played as an attacking midfielder or second striker, but could play as a lone striker or winger. He serves as a club director at Roma. Totti spent his entire career at Roma, winning a Serie A title, two Coppa Italia titles, two Supercoppa Italiana titles, he is the second-highest scorer of all time in Italian league history with 250 goals, is the sixth-highest scoring Italian in all competitions with 316 goals. Totti is the top goalscorer and the most capped player in the club's history, holds the record for the most goals scored in Serie A while playing for a single club, holds the record for the youngest club captain in the history of Serie A. A creative offensive playmaker renowned for his vision and goalscoring ability, Totti is considered to be one of the greatest Italian players of all time, one of the most talented players of his generation, Roma's greatest player.
He won a record eleven Oscar del Calcio awards from the Italian Footballers' Association: five Serie A Italian Footballer of the Year awards, two Serie A Footballer of the Year awards, two Serie A Goal of the Year awards, one Serie A Goalscorer of the Year award, one Serie A Young Footballer of the Year award. A 2006 FIFA World Cup winner and UEFA Euro 2000 finalist with Italy, Totti was selected in the All-Star team for both tournaments, he won several individual awards, notably the 2007 European Golden Shoe and the 2010 Golden Foot. Totti was selected in the European team of the season for three times. In 2004, he was named in the FIFA 100, a list of the world's greatest living players as selected by Pelé, as part of FIFA's centenary celebrations. In 2011, Totti was recognised by IFFHS as the most popular footballer in Europe. In November 2014, Totti extended his record as the oldest goalscorer in UEFA Champions League history, aged 38 years and 59 days. In 2015, France Football rated him as one of the ten-best footballers in the world who are over age 36.
Following his retirement in 2017, Totti was awarded the Player's Career Award and the UEFA President's Award. Totti was born in Rome to Fiorella Totti, he was raised in the Porta Metronia neighbourhood. As a youngster he idolised ex-Roma captain Giuseppe Giannini, played football with older boys. Totti began to play youth team football at the age of 8, with Fortitudo joining SMIT Trastevere and Lodigiani. After he came to the attention of scouts, his mother refused a lucrative offer from Milan in order to keep him in his home town. Although his youth club had come to an agreement to sell Totti to the Lazio youth side, one of Roma's youth coaches, Gildo Giannini, persuaded his parents to let him join the Roma youth squad in 1989. After three years in the youth team, Totti made his first appearance for Roma's senior side in Serie A at the age of 16, when coach Vujadin Boškov called him up in the 2–0 away victory against Brescia on 28 March 1993. In the following season under Carlo Mazzone, Totti began to play more as a second striker, scored his first goal on 4 September 1994 in a 1–1 draw against Foggia.
By 1995, Totti had become a regular in Roma's starting line-up and scored 16 goals during the next three seasons, while creating several more, as his talent was praised by his manager Mazzone. Following Mazzone's sacking in the summer of 1996 and the departure of Giannini, Totti was expected to play a more prominent role, after several promising seasons. Roma's chairman at the time however, Franco Sensi, impeded the transfer, leading to further tensions with the manager, who parted ways with the club. Totti's years under Zdeněk Zeman represented a period of both physical and mental maturation as a player. From a technical and tactical standpoint, he proved to be compatible on the left wing in the rigid formations of the Bohemian coach, as his new role gave him more space to take on defenders in one on one situations, cut into the centre to shoot on goal with his stronger foot, he displayed a greater responsibility for the team, was presented with the number 10 jersey. His first season under Zeman started well, with Totti taking advantage of a 4–3–3 formation and making his breakthrough with the club.
He finished the league season reaching double figures in goals scored for the first time in his career. Although he was not called up for the 1998 FIFA World Cup by Italy manager Cesare Maldini, his consistent performances and goalscoring throughout the course of the previous Serie A season saw him being awarded the Guerin d'Oro for the 1997–98 season, given to him for having achieved the highest average rating of any Serie A player; the following season, he began to gain recognition as a club symbol and as a leader, on 31 October 1998, Totti became the official team captain, the youngest Serie A club captain at the age of 22, inheriting the armband from Aldair.

Santa Maria in Trastevere
The Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere. The basic floor plan and wall structure of the church date back to the 340s, much of the structure to 1140-43; the first sanctuary was built in 221 and 227 by Pope Callixtus I and completed by Pope Julius I. The church has large areas of important mosaics from the late 13th century by Pietro Cavallini; the inscription on the episcopal throne states that this is the first church in Rome dedicated to Mary, mother of Jesus, although some claim that privilege belongs to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. It is one of the oldest churches in the city. A Christian house-church was founded here about 220 by Pope Saint Callixtus I on the site of the Taberna meritoria, a refuge for retired soldiers; the area was made available for Christian use by Emperor Alexander Severus when he settled a dispute between the Christians and tavern-keepers, according to the Liber Pontificalis "I prefer that it should belong to those who honor God, whatever be their form of worship."
In 340, when Pope Julius I rebuilt the titulus Callixti on a larger scale, it became the titulus Iulii in commemoration of his patronage and one of the original 25 parishes in Rome. The church underwent two restorations in the fifth and eighth centuries and in 1140-43 it was re-erected on its old foundations under Pope Innocent II. Innocent II razed the church along with the completed tomb of the Antipope Anacletus II, his former rival. Innocent II arranged for his own burial on the spot occupied by the tomb; the richly carved Ionic capitals reused along its nave were taken either from the ruins of the Baths of Caracalla or the nearby Temple of Isis on the Janiculum. When scholarship during the 19th century identified the faces in their carved decoration as Isis and Harpocrates, a restoration under Pius IX in 1870 hammered off the offending faces; the predecessor of the present church was built in the early fourth century and that church was itself the successor to one of the tituli, Early Christian basilicas ascribed to a patron and literally inscribed with his name.
Although nothing remains to establish with certainty where any of the public Christian edifices of Rome before the time of Constantine the Great were situated, the basilica on this site was known as Titulus Callisti, based on a legend in the Liber Pontificalis, which ascribed the earliest church here to a foundation by Pope Callixtus I, whose remains, translated to the new structure, are preserved under the altar. The inscriptions found in Santa Maria in Trastevere, a valuable resource illustrating the history of the Basilica, were collected and published by Vincenzo Forcella; the present nave stands on the earlier foundations. The 22 granite columns with Ionic and Corinthian capitals that separate the nave from the aisles came from the ruins of the Baths of Caracalla, as did the lintel of the entrance door. Inside the church are a number of 12th and late 13th-century mosaics. Below are mosaics on the subject of the Life of the Virgin by Pietro Cavallini. Above is the mosaic representation of the "Coronation of the Virgin".
The "Coronation of the Virgin" sits atop an apse vault, depicts Pope Innocent II holding a model of the church. Domenichino's octagonal ceiling painting, Assumption of the Virgin fits in the coffered ceiling setting that he designed; the fifth chapel to the left is the Avila Chapel designed by Antonio Gherardi. This, his Chapel of S. Cecilia in San Carlo ai Catinari are two of the most architecturally inventive chapels of the late-17th century in Rome; the lower order of the chapel is dark and employs Borromini-like forms. In the dome, there is an opening or oculus from which four putti emerge to carry a central tempietto, all of which frames a light-filled chamber above, illuminated by windows not visible from below; the church keeps a relic of her head, as well as a portion of the Holy Sponge. Among those buried in the church are the relics of Pope Callixtus I, Pope Innocent II, Antipope Anacletus II, Cardinal Philippe of Alençon and Cardinal Lorenzo Campeggio; the Romanesque campanile is from the 12th century.
Near the top, a niche protects a mosaic of the Child. The mosaics on the façade are believed to be from the 12th century, they depict the Madonna suckling the Child, flanked by 10 women holding lamps. This image on the façade showing Mary nursing Jesus is an early example of a popular late-medieval and renaissance type of image of the Virgin; the motif itself originated much earlier, with significant seventh-century Coptic examples at Wadi Natrun in Egypt. The façade of the church was restored in 1702 by Carlo Fontana, who replaced the ancient porch with a sloping tiled roof — seen in Falda's view above — with the present classicizing one; the octagonal fountain in the piazza in front of the church, which appears in a map of 1472, was restored by Carlo Fontana. Ancient sources maintain that the titulus S. Mariae was established by Pope Alexander I around 112. Traditions give the names of the early patrons of the tituli and have retrospectively assigned them the title of cardinal: thus at that time, the cardinal-patron of this basilica, these traditions assert, would have been Saint Calepodius.
Pope Callixtus I confirmed the titulus in 221. Callisti et Iuliani. By the 12th century, cardinal deacons as well as the presbyters had long be
Trastevere is the 13th rione of Rome, on the west bank of the Tiber, south of Vatican City, within Municipio I. Its name comes from the Latin trans Tiberim, meaning "beyond the Tiber", its logo is a golden head of a lion on a red background, the meaning of, uncertain. To the north, Trastevere borders Borgo. In Rome's Regal period, the area across the Tiber belonged to the hostile Etruscans: the Romans named it Ripa Etrusca. Rome conquered it to gain control of and access to the river from both banks, but was not interested in building on that side of the river. In fact, the only connection between Trastevere and the rest of the city was a small wooden bridge called the Pons Sublicius. By the time of the Republic c. 509 BC, the number of sailors and fishermen making a living from the river had increased, many had taken up residence in Trastevere. Immigrants from the East settled there Jews and Syrians; the area began to be considered part of the city under Augustus. Since the end of the Roman Republic the quarter was the center of an important Jewish community, which inhabited there until the end of the Middle Ages.
Rome's first synagogue is found in this district. The building was constructed in 980, became a synagogue in 1073 through the efforts of lexicographer Nathan ben Yechiel. There was a mikveh in the building. At the base of the central column there is still visible Hebrew writing, its use as a synagogue ended when the Jews were forced to move to the Roman ghetto on the other side of the Tiber river in the mid-16th century. It is now used commercially, can be found at 14, Vicolo dell’Atleta. With the wealth of the Imperial Age, several important figures decided to build their villae in Trastevere, including Clodia, Julius Caesar; the regio included two of the most ancient churches in Rome, the Titulus Callixti called the Basilica di Santa Maria in Trastevere, the Titulus Cecilae, Santa Cecilia in Trastevere. In order to have a stronghold on the right Bank and to control the Gianicolo hill, Transtiberim was included by Emperor Aurelian inside the wall erected to defend the city against the Germanic tribes.
In the Middle Ages Trastevere had narrow, irregular streets. At the end of the 15th century these mignani were removed. Trastevere remained a maze of narrow streets. There was a strong contrast between the large, opulent houses of the upper classes and the small, dilapidated houses of the poor; the streets had no pavement until the time of Sixtus IV at the end of the 15th century. At first bricks were used, but these were replaced by sampietrini, which were more suitable for carriages. Thanks to its partial isolation and to the fact that its population had been multicultural since the ancient Roman period, the inhabitants of Trastevere, called Trasteverini, developed a culture of their own. In 1744 Benedict XIV modified the borders of the rioni. Nowadays, Trastevere maintains its character thanks to its narrow cobbled streets lined by ancient houses. At night and tourists alike flock to its many pubs and restaurants, but much of the original character of Trastevere remains; the area is home to several foreign academic institutions including The American University of Rome and John Cabot University, the American Academy in Rome, the Rome campus of the Thomas More College of Liberal Arts, the Canadian University of Waterloo School of Architecture, the American Pratt Institute School of Architecture therefore serving as home to an international student body.
The neighborhood has attracted artists, foreign expats, many famous people. In the sixties and seventies, the American musicians/composers Frederic Rzewski and Richard Teitelbaum, of the group Musica Elettronica Viva, lived in Via della Luce. Sergio Leone, the director of Spaghetti Westerns, grew up in Viale Glorioso, went to a Catholic private school in the neighborhood. Ennio Morricone, the film music composer, went to the same school, for one year was in the same class as Sergio Leone. Public libraries in Trastevere include Casa della Memoria e della Storia.
