* : Mediterranean Cup 1950/53, won by Italy.
    According to the odd rules of this Tournament, Italy fielded a Team of U.23 players
    (with a maximum number of three over age,in each Match), where the under 23 age was
    referred to the date of the establishment of the Tnmt (May 1st, 1948) and not to the 
    starting date (year 1950).
    It was, realistically, a B Team. However, it is here listed as U.23, to distinguish 
    it from the B Team (without restriction), which played during the same years against
    other foreign Teams.    
+ : Latin Cup for U.23 Teams (France, Spain and Italy), won by France. 
# : UEFA U.23 Championship. 
    1970 and 1971 Matches valid for the first Edition, won by Czechoslovakia. 
    1973 and 1974 (until April) Matches valid for the second Edition, won by Hungary.
    1974 (November), 1975 and 1976 Matches valid for the third Edition, won by Soviet Un. 
° : Mediterranean Games.
    1991 Matches valid for the XI Edition, won by Greece.
    1993 Matches valid for the XII Edition, won by Turkey.
    1997 Matches valid for the XIII Edition, won by Italy.
    Italy participated to the XI Edition of the Games, with a rearranged Mil.Team, which
    had just won the XXXIV Edition of the Military World Championship.
§ : Prince Philip Cup.

In many Sources ("Almanacco Panini" and others):
a. most of the above-quoted “U.23” Matches, from years 1942 to 1960, are listed in Italy
   "U.21” Team’s Matches
b. the above-quoted “U.23” Matches, from year 1969 to the end (1997),are listed in Italy
   “B” Team’s Matches.
Both of them (a. and b. criteria) are not strictly correct.
