Blue is the colour of the Savoia, which was the ruling house of Italy from 1861 until 1946. Until then, the country's flag always had the Savoy coat of arms on it.

It is only since the Italian Republic was established, post-war, that the Tricolor has been the national flag.

Why do the Italians wear blue football jerseys?

Sky blue was the color of the Royal House of the Kingdom of Italy. In its first match, the Italian national team wore white shirts with shorts from the club of each player; the sky blue shirts were introduced in the following match. Azzurro (singular of azzurri) was the royal family (Savoia) color. It wasn't changed when the Italian Republic was born in 1946, because for too many years "azzurri" identified Italian national teams.
