On Dec. 16, 1899, a group of Englishmen, led by the likes of Herbert Kilpin, Alfred Edwards, Samuel Richard Davies and David Allison, formed what was then known as the Milan Cricket and Football Club.
One-hundred-sixteen years later, the club now called Associazione Calcio Milan—or, more popularly, Milan—is a worldwide brand. Winner of 18 Italian league titles, seven European Cups and four world championships, among several other honors, Milan is one of the world's most historic clubs.
Though the club has fallen on some hard times lately, Wednesday is a day of celebration, as Milan celebrates its 116th birthday. The day allows all members of the Milan family to share their red and black pride.

On its birthday, Milan presented its fans a gift: the video attached above.
Italian rapper Emis Killa and bassist Saturnino headline a special music video simply titled "#Rossoneri." The song is available for download through most mainstream music platforms, including iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Amazon and Deezer.
Here is the official description attached to the video on YouTube:
Our history, our colours, endless emotion brought to you in the melody of Emis Killa and Saturnino. Here is the exclusive #Rossoneri video, a gift for all Milan followers!

The song is quite addicting, even if you don't understand Italian. Fortunately, the video has English subtitles. It also features clips of some of Milan's most historic moments, as well as several clips of the current squad, which is shown following its new manager, Sinisa Mihajlovic.
Milan will not get to rest on the birthday of the club, as the Rossoneri must prepare to face Mihajlovic's old squad, Sampdoria, Thursday in the Round of 16 in Coppa Italia.
