There are two conflicting answers on the topic -
Theory 1: It is said that the jersey was chosen to be blue as a honor to the royal Savoia family of Italy. During the first two games that the officialy national team played, the players wore white shirts with their club team shorts, after which blue was chosen.
Theory 2 : For the first games that the Italian national team played, they used white jerseys, however, during one of the original matches that the national team played it began to snow, and they were unable to continue wearing white. The only other available jersey's were Blue. After changing jersey's to the Blue jerseys to finish the game (and winning that game) they wore Blue ever since.
As to which story is true, I have no idea, but I can say that Italians are supersticious enough to wear a Blue jersey for eternity just because they won in it the first time haha.
