Italian National Team champion Marco Verratti and the four protagonists from "44 Cats," a TV show produced by Rainbow, have joined forces for the charity initiative Italia Gattastica. 

The Buffycats will be glued to the screen to cheer on the Italian team. To help them in their new mission, they called Marco Verratti, ready to morph into feline champ Gatto Marco.

Gatto Marco will join Lampo, Milady, Pilou and Meatball on a customized Italian flag dedicated to the sporting event. The revenues from the sale of the limited-edition Italian flag, available on Rainbow Amazon Store, will be donated to Make-A-Wish Italia Onlus (Makeawish.it). 

"I'm really happy to kick off this project," says Marco Verratti. "The day I was asked to join this adventure, my thoughts immediately turned to my children, who are huge '44 Cats' fans. It was fun and stimulating to work with serious and very professional companies like Rainbow and Vanquish. Now I hope that the little fans of Buffycats and now also of Gatto Marco will like it because during the next European Championships we will need the support and cheer of everyone. Go Azzurri! Go '44 Cats!'"
