Football or Soccer o Calcio is the sport more loved by Italians.I wrote about the origins of football in Italy, an old sport very similar to soccer of today that we can see to play in Florence every year; a 'mix' of soccer, rugby, a sport that centuries after developed in forms now we see.
Football , called calcio, in Italy has been always or most watched sport.
Since the 80s, when it could begin importing foreign players, with teams such as Juventus, - which is owned by the Agnelli family, owners of Fiat - the 'series' is equipped with the best players in the world, in same period Berlusconi has always been fan of AC Milan, he sensed the deal and become the owner of AC Milan was the first to challenge the hegemony of the Agnelli family in the world of football.

Baggio has had serious health problems made a dozen times to the legs is always returned to the highest level, but the Italian Serie A football is ruthless and only one player can not play is considered 'finished'.
Baggio has chosen several times to take far less money and go play the smaller teams but to continue to play, to take the field, rather than in big clubs but there remained on the bench.
