Calling the incident 'a tragedy', the FIGC said: "The Italian Football Federation, its staff and all the players stand united with the entire country and the family of the victims.
"As a result, we have requested and received from UEFA permission to wear black armbands during the game against Germany as a symbol of our sympathy in what is a very painful time."
