Genoveffa Darone Biography

Genoveffa Darone is the loving wife of Italian football star Lorenzo Insigne. She started from a very humble beginning and with hard work and passion lived life on her own terms before meeting with Insigne. Naples is the city that grew the two souls together and only after their first meeting, it was clear that they had a connection. The love story only got better in the last few years with the arrival of their beautiful kids.

Insigne has developed himself into one of the best forwards from Napoli and after his heroics in the EURO 2020, it was evident why Naples gave him so much love. However, he didn’t have such fame when he was just starting out his football journey at the age of 15. Insigne started his career with Gli Azzurri youth ranks. Soon, the teenager was spotted by the senior team coaches because of his incredible dribbling skills. He took the team to different heights in the last few years. Napoli secured the runners-up position of Serie A four times and won the Copa Italia two times with the help of Insigne. However, the beautiful partnership is set to end this summer as the Napoli captain recently signed a pre-contract agreement with American team Toronto FC. The star footballer has to move to the US and Naples would certainly miss one of their own. 

Insigne’s stature wasn’t only limited to Napoli as his incredible performance for the Italian national team put him on the radar of every Italian football lover. But very few of them really know about his charming love story with Genoveffa. So today, we are going to discuss the personal life, career and interests of Insigne’s stunning wife.
