A town dubbed the "most Scottish in Italy" has paid tribute to the football links between the nations on the eve of their showdown at Hampden.
A photographic tribute to the Scots born footballer has been made
The mayor of Barga in Tuscany has unveiled a photographic tribute to Scots-born player Johnny Moscardini outside the stadium named after him.
A spokesman for the local council said it was a "sign of further friendship" between the town and Scotland.
Mayor Umberto Sereni will also attend the match in Glasgow on Saturday.
A large number of Scottish Italians can trace their roots back to the Tuscan hill town.
One of their number was Moscardini, the Falkirk-born footballer who played for the Italian national team in the 1920s.
Over the years Barga has done more and more to celebrate these national links.
Every year it stages a fish and chip festival.
It also awards St Cristopher medals to its sons and daughters - many of whom are Scottish Italians.
Mr Sereni has cultivated these links and said he wanted to honour Moscardini - the only Scottish-born man to play for Italy - on the eve of the clash between the two nations in Glasgow.
However, his goodwill did not extend to his forecast of the final score at Hampden.
"I predict 3-1 to Italy - and I never get these things wrong!" he said.
