Arezzo is also among the cities featured in the Belgian series on the May 1985 massacre

The Heysel Drama, this is the title of the six-episode documentary series, co-produced by the Belgian company Scope Pictures and the Italian Palomar. The authors of the series, which will be distributed in the coming months by Netflix, are Jean-Philippe Leclaire, Jan Verheyen and Eddy Pizzardini.

The production also shot some footage in Arezzo, from 19 to 22 April, to gather the testimonies of some of the relatives of the victims involved in the 29 May 1985 tragedy. In fact, one of the six episodes retraces the stories of the people from Arezzo who died in the Heysel stadium in Brussels, shortly before the kick-off of the Champions Cup final between Juventus and Liverpool.

Here are some photos of the set:
