O DERBY
When the Italian clubs Torino and Pro Vercelli visited Brazil in 1914, a group of Italians who lived in São Paulo decided to found an Italian club to practice sports (football and basketball). This club was named Palestra Itália. These Italians used to be members of Corinthians but from that moment they became the "betrayers". Palestra (Palmeiras) and Corinthians divided the fans and the honours in São Paulo and that's how the match became "The Derby".
