Sportrait: Italian Footballers


Dolce & Gabbana have wrangled five gorgeous Italian footballers to model their latest underwear in a new campaign: Manuele Blasi, Gennaro Gattuso, Andrea Pirlo, Gianluca Zambrotta, Fabio Cannavaro. If their names alone aren't sexy enough, here they are in all their glory (well, most of it).


And the next question is, which style works for you?

  2. You know, if you go to the LDS Welcoming Centre on Temple Square in SLC, you see painted walls depicting the men and women of "Ancient America" and of the Mormon pioneers. They are all depictions of mesomorphic rock-hard sculpted human beings.

    If some individuals look at many gay and gay-affirming blogs, the depictions of gay and lesbian women as extremely good-looking and well-built, and of course, well endowed in penile dimension and girth, with huge scrota, often purposely intimidate the gay or lesbian without those attributes...some by nature, and mostly by nurture.

  3. Mamma mia... that's a spicy meatball...

  4. They're all very handsome men....but for some reason, their bodies all look very similiar...which is rather weird. I think I would appreciate the ads more if it focused on each guy individually. A little body hair would be very nice on a couple of them.

  6. Has any brand ever so flagrantly sought a gay audience while blithely refusing to acknowledge same? This is pissing me off.

    They all are where I live. I guess we are lucky here.

  8. Why would someone introduce waxing to Italians? Who's next, the Greeks?? For the love of God, hide the hirsute Russians!!

  9. Donald I'm not sure what you're talking about with the scrota and the penises. Do you mean that the men where you live look like the guys in the picture? And while the models for Dolce and Gabbana are pretty hot, I don't think that the depiction of their genitalia is off-base... their packages look about the same as most of the relatively fit guys at my gym. I'd prefer to see a little body hair though... they're Italians, for God's sake...

  10. I'm buying several new pairs as long as my new underwear comes with at least one of those boys in them.

  13. Andy,

    Do you know who photographed the D&G campaign?

  14. Attactive, yes, gorgeous, not.

  15. This is an ad for clothes? I'm so out of the loop.

  16. Yeah, for some reason this photo does nothing for me. And I usually go for the Mediterraneans.

  18. I just wet myself. Can someone please throw me a towel?

  19. I just love that Zambrotta is the only one wearing briefs in every picture.

  20. Just to point out the hypocrisy of Dolce and Gabbana: Cannavaro, the one with the tattooed arm, is a well-known fascist, and he "heils" supporters with the fascist-nazist "heil hitler" sign. His tattoo actually reads "DUX", which was the title of Mussolini.

    Nice job numnuts! I'm sure your shorts sell a lot more. Thousands of gay people killed by a$$holes like Cannavaro would definetly buy them!

    Too bad they're dead.

  21. If you go to, you can see the photograph everyday as a painting.

    Upload, choose the genre of painting you want. Order. 3 days later, a beautiful artwork on museum-quality stretch canvas is delivered to your door.

    It's even more beautiful -- and much bigger than the original photograph.
