In a nutshell:
It's the top honour for foreign players in the Italian game.
Awarded to: The best non-Italian player from the Italian leagues.
Voted by: Members of the Italian Association of Footballers (Associazione Italiana Calciatori).
When: At the end of each football season.
Worth a mention: 1. This award is given at the 'Oscar del Calcio' event, along with a host of others such as Top Italian Footballer.
2. Strangely, despite their best efforts with Sampdoria, neither Lee Sharpe or Danny Dichio managed to come home with this particular gong.
