Partita di Calcio – AS Roma v. Fiorentina

Heather Buffo
December 23, 2013
AS Roma plays in the olympic stadium at the olympic village Mussolini built for the 1960 olympics. This is a view of the field from about halfway up the stadium seats. The fans set off a lot of smoke bombs in the teams colors. Forza AS Roma! Fiorentina (Florence's team) fans had their own section in the stands that was protected by guards in case the fans got violent. Our seats were really close to the ground but we were far behind the goal.

My friends and I went to the AS Roma/Fiorentina soccer game. It was an important match and AS Roma won 2-1!
