The big news of the day for Serie A fans is that A.S. Roma will be the MLS All Star game opponent this year in Kansas City. See the less than thrilled reaction from Ben Gartland at The Daily Wiz as a sample of the reaction you’ll likely read on this news, which to me shows an unfortunate ignorance of Serie A soccer in some U.S. soccer circles. Forza Italian Football runs down its top 10 goals of the Serie […]

If you were visiting Parma (for cheese undoubtedly) and decided to drive to Bologna (for some delicious meats to go with the cheese), you would take the A1 southeast, driving by smaller Italian cities like Modena. However, if you were to turn off at Via Modena and go away from that city, you would drive to the city of Sassuolo, an Italian city known for its industry and not for its history or food, unlike many other Italian cities.

Despite establishing themselves as a mid-table team for 2012-2013, Cagliari last weekend came to Naples determined to give Napoli a game. The home team needed the full three points to firm up their chances at a guaranteed Champions League spot, and the result was an entertaining back-and-forth game that left viewers waiting until late in the game for a decision in this match.
