fiorentina tour

Since September 13 th , 1931, Stadio Artemio Franchi has been home to Fiorentina . Built by Italian architect Pier Luigi Nervi, its halls are certainly hallowed, its railings touched by the greatest players to ever play. No one can doubt the history that is in this stadium and on its pitch.

There has been a lot of debate lately around the Stadio, whether to renovate or build new. We now know that renovation isn’t an option. After nearly 90 years of impeccable service, there has been little updating done in that time. That debate isn’t for this article though. This article is designed to share the experience of the behind the scenes stadium tour; the stories, the pictures and the videos.

The pregame atmosphere at Stadio Artemio Franchi is always enjoyable. I normally get dropped off at Bar Stadio on the corner of Viale dei Mille and Viale Manfredo Fanti and make my way up to the Fiorentina Store to pick up some of the newest merchandise. After I’ve had my fix of Fiorentina swag it is customary to head up to Bar Marisa for a beverage, or at the very least appreciate their shrine to everything Fiorentina . After a drink I head to the north end of the stadium and look for some of the delicious street food and local Fiorentina vendors. Both are here in plenty. Here you can find cheap Fiorentina gear, scarves and local food and drink. Well worth it for any diehard or casual fan. The area is safe and the people here are extremely friendly.

 alt=

The stadium tour starts at Ingresso Monumentale, the most recognizable and famous facade of the Franchi. Enter through the large gates and meet with one of the many professional Fiorentina guides who will help you get started. The guides at the Franchi all take pride in their job and your enjoyment. They are friendly, insightful and helpful. Today we are lucky enough to have Edoardo host us, who is the best of the bunch.

As you stand waiting in the courtyard to get started, you get to peak into several of the VIP areas. You can see chefs working in the nearby kitchens, preparing much of the delicious food lucky VIPs will get to eat. Last minute preparations are finalized. No attention to detail is spared. You try to catch a glance of any actual VIPs in attendance. Rumor has it Sebastian Frey and Tomas Ujfalusi are in attendance tonight.

Welcome VIPs

The tour itself starts in the Tribuna entrance hall. Adorned with the Fiorentina logo and lit up with Viola lights, the three-story entrance hall features a large statue of a football player welcoming you. As you walk past the stairs you come to a hallway full of familiar faces: Hamrin, Di Livio, Toldo, Batistuta, Costa, Baggio, Toni, Antognoni, Socrates, Frey, Dunga and more. The thought of all of that talent collected in one place is hair raising. Edoardo takes a few moments to talk about those pictured on the walls and the contributions they have each made to the club. This is another moment to understand that these individuals working here are true fans. They each experienced so many of these moments here personally.

fiorentina tour

Flagbearers of the club’s history, these legendary players line the walls escorting you to the storied and sacred Fiorentina locker room. As Edoardo leads the group to the entrance, you turn the corner where you are greeted with a beautiful Fiorentina logo. Take a deep breath and try to hide that excitement, you are now walking into the land of Fiorentina immortality. I wish I could do this next part justice. Fearing I can’t, here is a video to help.

Welcome to the Fiorentina locker room

As you enter you find the lockers in the shape of a horseshoe; purple seat after purple seat lines the perimeter with a training table in the middle. What makes this room so special is Davide Astori ’s locker. Located on the other side of the training table from the entrance, Davide is protected by Federico Chiesa on his left side and Federico Ceccherini on his right. His locker stands as it did prior to his tragic and untimely death. The memory of our captain is everywhere in this stadium, and rightly so. This includes the banner that goes around the Fiorentina locker room; the shrine that fans came to the stadium to hang their scarfs and signs on in order pay homage to our captain is captured in photographs along the perimeter of the room, honoring and remembering Davide. His spirit will never fade at this club.

Protected by two Federico’s, Davide is forever a part of this room

I can tell that not all of those in attendance on the tour understand the significance of the moment they are in. In this, some of my family is just as guilty as the next, a few of them having passively followed the club from a distance because of me. At this moment however, everyone is genuinely moved.

There is no easy way to transition from the memory of Davide Astori, so I won’t try to.

fiorentina tour

Have you heard the legend of Fiorentina’s Viola color chosen because of bad wash? The city of Firenze has red and white as its official colors. Most teams in the city still use these colors to this day. However, legend has it that many years ago, while washing the red and white jerseys in the Arno River, they turned purple (pink?). As Edoardo tells us, that is not true. The truth lies between two other stories.

Luigi Ridolfi, the founder and first President of Fiorentina loved the color violet, as violet was his family’s official color. The Ridolfi’s family passion for botany and the color violet led them to create the “purple Rose”, now named Ridolfi’s Rose. Clearly there is only one color he would choose for his beloved Fiorentina.

fiorentina tour

The second story is much simpler and less romanticized. Ridolfi simply found a lot of violet fabric at a good price. He created the Viola shirt and these unique jerseys ended up becoming very popular with the Fiorentini public. Edoardo thinks the truth lies in the middle of these stories.

From the locker room you head back out the way you came in, this time making a left and going to the next corridor which is where the famous player stairwell is. By now we have all seen the Fiorentina team enter the stadium pregame, walking up these stairs in uniform to the locker room. This stairwell is shared with the away team who, not surprisingly, have to walk an extra flight of stairs to their locker room. Though the railing is in much need of replacement and repair it stays in place as it has for many years. Fiorentina is too nostalgic to change a railing that has had both Fiorentina and competitor legends touch it. Make sure you touch it too!

Famous railing in the player stairwell

At this moment you are now looking through the eyes of every Fiorentina starting player ever. You walk down the stairs to the only corridor that leads the players to the pitch. This hallway happens to be the longest entry corridor in all of Italy, probably by design. Ensuring visiting teams in the stadium know exactly where they are, Fiorentina has lined the walls with mural after mural of the Ponte Vecchio, Il Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, Calcio Storico, Marzocco and of course many scenes of the raucous Curva Fiesole and Fiorentina faithful. Even if you are not scared, a rival walking through these halls would be hard pressed not to be mesmerized by the history that exists here, a history that extends outside of these stadio walls, protecting and insulating it from those who try to conquer it. (Video one and two )

fiorentina tour

As you approach the end of the hallway leading to the pitch, you see the last thing that the away team will see… Il Duomo on right side and Palazzo Vecchio on the left; two symbols of Firenze’s financial, artistic, architectural and cultural dominance over the country for centuries. From here it’s all uphill.

The beginning of the player tunnel below the pitch

You walk up the twenty plus stairs to the pitch and exit out of a plastic canopy. Curva Fiesole is to your left, Curva Ferrovia to your right, Maratona straight ahead, and the Tribuna is behind you. The Torre di Maratona is spectacular, lit up in Viola. You can almost hear Bach’s Prelude in C Major as you look around the stadium. The first thing you notice is how calm and peaceful the pitch is pregame. The lights are on, the stands are empty, and there is no sound other than those on the tour with you. For a fleeting moment you have the entire stadium to yourself. Spin around and take it all in. ( Video )

Curva Fiesole

As you turn directly opposite from the Torre di Maratona and walk towards the Tribuna you locate Rocco’s seat. Just below that is the bench for the away team as well as our Fiorentina players. It truly is spectacular. Everyone on the tour takes the moment to look around and take some pictures.

Fiorentina team bench

You find yourself surprisingly impressed with the condition of the pitch. You hear at least 3 people ask, “Is this turf?” or “Is this fake?” No, it is real grass. It is just impeccably taken care of.

Fiorentina Fan Club Tokyo banner. Ciao Flavio!

After seeing the Fiorentina Fan Club Tokyo banner near the Curva Ferrovia, you are led up the stairs of the Tribuna and back into the main area where everything started. The tour doesn’t stop here, though. The tour continues to the media room which is set up for pre and post-game manager press conferences. This room has about sixty plus chairs lined up for members of the press to all pack in. ViolaNation is one of those with access! On the back wall there is another mural of the Curva Fiesole choreography honoring Davide Astori from March 11, 2018. Another reminder of just how important he is to the ongoing personality of this club and its fans.

fiorentina tour

After this room the tour ends. You make your way to your seats to take in the next spectacle, the game.

fiorentina tour

I want to thank all of those that made this happen for us at Fiorentina and Mediacom. I really want to thank those within Fiorentina that made this tour so informational and enjoyable. Edoardo is a genuine Fiorentina gem. His desire to share his vast knowledge of everything Firenze, Fiorentina and Artemio Franchi has him as excited to read this story as anyone else. There were many others who helped throughout the tour make it truly special, who because of their roles within the club want to remain anonymous. They all deserve a lot of thanks and credit for the work they do on events like these and the work they do in the shadows that will move Fiorentina from our past into the vision Rocco has for the club.

If I had to sum up what I took out of this experience, I think I could do it in one word - LOVE. We were greeted by the most wonderful people who led us through this majestical stadium. For people like Edoardo, working here is more than a job, it is their expression of their love for both club and city. The amount of love on display through images of fan choreography in the stadium is incredible. There is no doubt as to which team has the best fans in all of Italy. The era of bandiera may be over, but the fact that I sat above Antognoni, Donadel, Dainelli, Bigica, Frey and Ujfalusi, and walked through a stadium with the images of Batistuta, Costa, Hamrin, Baggio and Toni shows the love that each of these men have for everything Viola. Finally, and most personally, the love that Davide had for this club and the love that this club and its fans will always have for him was breathtaking. I became a fan of Fiorentina because of its appeal on and off the field. It is the most amazing club situated in the most picturesque city in the world. Fiorentina has time and time again shown that it is more than just a team on a pitch. It is club, it is city, it is country, it is community. It is fashion and history and art and architecture all in one. It is love for all that is holy in sports and Davide is a perfect example of that.

Fiorentina itself proves to be the biggest bandiera for why we choose to cheer for something meaningful rather than cheering for just another bunch of stripes because it is easy. There was so much love in both the walls of this stadium and the bodies inside them.

Forza Viola!

Stadio Artemio Franchi is a football stadium home to ACF Fiorentina who are based in Florence, Italy. The ground is famous for being built entirely of reinforced concrete and like a lot of other stadiums in Italy, it was last renovated for the 1990 football World Cup.

Fiorentina Stadium Guide

Stadio artemio franchi history.

Fiorentina’s stadium first opened on 13th September 1931 with a friendly match against Austrian Side Admira Wien . Initially named in honour of Giovanni Berta who was regarded by the far right as a “martyr of the fascist revolution”, the stadium was constructed during the era of Mussolini, and was used to stir national pride.

Hosting matches of the 1934 World Cup which Italy went on to win, nationalists would have argued that it was a great success however immediately after the culmination of the Second World War, fascism fell out of fashion, and the ground was renamed to simply Stadio Communale.

Extensively renovated for Italia 90, the second Italian World Cup gave Florence’s Communale Stadium it’s current form, most notably the removal of the athletics track and the expansion in seated places. Prior to this the official attendance record was set at 58,271 on 25th November 1984 during a match against Internazionale .

Renamed to Stadio Artemio Franchi in 1991 in honour of the former FIGC president, the existence of Marathon Tower is perhaps the only obvious relic of Il Dulce’s reign. A popular architectural piece of their day, towers were included in the design of many Italian stadiums in the 1920s including Bologna’s Renato Dall’Ara , and Torino’s Stadio Olimpico .

Since 2012 the club have been in talks with the city of Florence to construct a state-of-the-art 40,000 capacity stadium within the Mercafir Area of the city. Expected to cost over €300m, the iconic helix staircases and other prime examples of Italian Rationalism may not be around for much longer!

stadio artemio franchi Seating Plan

fiorentina tour

Click the thumbnails above to enlarge an image of each stand and to read a more detailed description of each part of the Stadium.

Matchday Experience

Stadio artemio franchi away section.

Away fans who make the trip to Florence are housed within the south-east corner of the stadium within sections OS1 – OS3 which are accessible from gates 13 and 14.

Identifiable on the seating plan by looking for the Settore Ospiti section (Industry Guests) which is marked in yellow, the seating section is sandwiched between the Tribuna Di Maratona and Curva Ferrovia aka. The Railway End.

Views from the stand are generally ok you have to remember that there is a running track which adds distance.Whilst the lower section of seating is technically closer, the views are arguably more clear from the second-tier as it gives you a better overview of the action on the pitch.

Best Pubs near ground

Located within the Coverciano neighbourhood you will undoubtedly encounter a few local bars and restaurants whilst making your way to Fiorentina’s ground, however nothing will match the choice you will find in the centre of Florence.

The map below outlines a few of the most highly-rated bars in the city.

Food - Places to eat

Following on from the aforementioned paragraph about bars, the advice also applies here; you will find some smaller cafes and restaurants on your way to the ground but not as much as you will in the city-centre where they generally open late into the night.

Inside Artemio Franchi, there isn’t much food and beverage to be found inside – particularly when compared to English stadiums so make sure you grab snacks before the match.

Fiorentina Club Shop

Exterior of Fiorentina Store

The club shop (FiorentinaPoint) at Stadio Artemio Franchi is located on 85/A Viale Manfredo Fanti which is the road which runs behind the Curva Nord. With the exception of the  Fiorentina Online Store it is easily the best place to purchase official merchandise on matchdays.

Opening Hours

  • Monday to Friday: 9.30 am – 1.00 pm and 2.30 pm – 6.30 pm
  • Weekends: Unknown.
  • Matchdays: Open for a few hours either side of kick-off.

Can you take a stadium Tour?

Currently the club does not offer tours of the Stadio Comunale Artemio Franchi but if you arrive on matchday you can take a good look at it then. It is a very bare stadium with a lack of décor about it with exposed stands, no shiny façades and  no commercial leanings.

How to buy Fiorentina Tickets

Tickets to see ACF Fiorentina can be purchased online, from one of the Fiorentina Point Stores, at one of the authorised resellers around the city or at the box office at Stadio Artemio Franchi in the days leading up to the match.

The opening times for the Fiorentina Point at the stadium are listed above in the “Club Shop” section, however in addition to this the box-office is open between 9.30 am – 1.00 pm on Saturdays and from 9.30 am until kick-off on Sundays providing there is a match on either day.

Ticket Prices

  • Tribuna Coperta: €35.00 – €200.00
  • Tribuna di Maratona: €35.00 – €50.00
  • Curva Fiesole: €20.00
  • Curva Ferrovia: €20.00

Please remember to bring your ID otherwise you may not be able to purchase a ticket!

How to get to Stadio Artemio Franchi

Where is stadio artemio franchi.

Fiorentina’s stadium is located just under 3km north-east from Florence’s traditional city centre where the iconic Ponte Vecchio, The Old Bridge, spans over the Arno River.

The address for satnav is as follows:

  • Artemio Franchi Stadium, Viale Manfredo Fanti, 4, 50137 Firenze, Italy

From the city centre a taxi will take around 15 minutes and will likely set you back anywhere between €10.00 – €20.00.

Parking around the immediate environs of the stadium is free, however unless you’re use to driving in Italy it can be a very stressful experience as cars typically don’t leave much room between spaces.

Make sure you get there early to make it easier for yourself, and failing this you can find parking garages as you get close to the city centre.

Train - Public Transport

The closest station “Firenze Campo di Marte” is only 400 meters away from Fiorentina’s stadium and can be caught from Santa Maria Novella station in the city centre less than 10 minutes away from The Duomo.

fiorentina tour

Public Transport of Stadio Artemio Franchi

The closet airport to Florence is the Aeroporto di Firenze-Peretola, located less than 5km away which makes planning a weekend away pretty easy. Once you have landed you can catch a bus service which departs every 30 minutes or so.

If you are travelling with a low cost airline double check whether or not you will be landing here or at Pisa International Airport (Galileo Galilei Airport) as it is sometimes marketed as Florence.

This is around 1 hour away from the stadium and requires you to catch a train service which whilst not the end of the world, is definitely worth avoiding if possible!

Hotels Near Stadio Artemio Franchi

The ancient city of Florence is relatively compact meaning that you shouldn’t feel too location conscious when booking your hotel. There are generally more options North of the River Arno but this doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better.

Three of the highest rated hotels by customers are the Grand Hotel Cavour, Hotel David and the Hotel Duomo.

Groundhopping at ACF Fiorentina

fiorentina tour

Seeing a soccer game at Fiorentina is a step back in time, an affordable glimpse of Serie A football, and a way to experience the real Florence beyond its tourist center.

Millions of people visit Florence, Italy, every year — as well they should. With its art, history, architecture and food, Florence is a must-see place on the tourist circuit.

But just a 30-minute walk from the super-crowded tourist center is a 1930s-era stadium in a residential neighborhood, where every other Sunday afternoon, tens of thousands of locals gather to support the Viola , or Purple. It’s a reminder that Florence’s history didn’t stop in the 16th century, and that even in a city famous for its past, football — or calcio , as they call it here — still brings people together.

ACF Fiorentina History

Fiorentina emerged in 1926 after several clubs had come and gone over the previous 30 years, and to remain strong, the last two standing merged to form the current one. Originally, they wore red and white, the traditional colors of the city, but a washing error created purple shirts, the fans liked them, and so to this day Fiorentina are one of just a handful of clubs in world soccer to have purple as their primary color. Orlando City in MLS are said to have drawn inspiration from them.

They won their first trophy, the domestic Coppa Italia, in 1940, then glory days came in the 1950s. The league was won for the first time in 1956, then after four straight second-place finishes, Fiorentina won the Coppa again in 1961, then they added that year’s European Cup Winner’s Cup (basically today’s Europa League ) as well as a runner-up finish there the following year.

They won the league again in 1969, then faded from big-time competition, not lifting another trophy until the Coppa in 1996 and 2001. But underneath that success, financial trouble loomed, and within a year the club was relegated, then bankrupt. Local leaders revived it, but had to restart in the fourth tier for the 2002-2003 season.

Their championship there, combined with changes in the league structure, meant they then skipped to Serie B at the second tier. Remarkably, two years later they were back in Serie A and playing in the Europa League, and over the last 20 years that has been basically who they are on the pitch: a solid Serie A team which occasionally has a decent run in Europe but doesn’t win anything.

In today’s world of big money equaling success in football, Fiorentina are a bit like an Italian West Ham: a big and historic club with a large following that just doesn’t have the muscle to keep enough top players long enough to win anything and still plays in their original stadium. But it’s a seriously fun place to see a game — and it’s in Florence!

Game Day Tips at Fiorentina

The simplest way to get to Fiorentina’s stadium is to walk; it’s just over a mile from the city’s historic center, a flat, ever-more-purple stroll through safe streets, where closer to the stadium you’ll start to see street vendors selling food. But whereas in England you’ll see burgers and maybe fish and chips, here it’s a spicy sausage called salsiccia or, for the more adventurous and tradition-following, lampredotto , a sandwich “made from the fourth and final stomach of a cow,” according to Wikipedia . The salsiccia was excellent.

It’s not exactly glamorous, but it’s been home to Fiorentina for 90 years.

Stadio Comunale Artemio Franchi, Fiorentina’s Stadium

Fiorentina’s home since 1931 has apparently not changed much in that time. It is oval-shaped because it once had a running track, so each end is, by modern standards, a rather long way from the pitch. But the view of the action from the sides is excellent, and if you’re high enough, the view of the surrounding hills is exquisite.

The most famous aspect of the stadium is the 230-foot “Tower of Marathon,” officially the flagstaff but, to my eyes, a giant phallus left over from fascist days.

The stadium hosted World Cup games in both 1934 and 1990.

Football with a view: from the top of the Artemio Franchi.

Capacity is just over 43,000, and the action is in the Curva (or end) Fiesole , named for the nearby hilltop town of Fiesole. In that curva , the ultras will be bouncing, singing and waving flags throughout the game. If you want in on the fun, go sit there; if you want to see the game, pick something on the side. When I was there it was 35 Euro for uncovered seats on one side — fortunately, it doesn’t rain much in Florence — and 80 Euro and up for covered seats on the other side.

Away fans, also eternally flag waving, are encased in a glass cage all by themselves in another corner.

The poor Spezie folks were all by themselves in the glassed-in corner.

Artemio Franchi was a Florentine president of the Italian Football Association and UEFA; the stadium at Siena is also named for him.

There was talk, after an American took over the club, of replacing the stadium, but imagine trying to build something in Florence, of all places! Now there’s talk of rebuilding to bring the ends in closer, but in Italy there is often much talk and little action. Meanwhile, it’s pretty clear no one is spending any money on the place.

Popcorn and ice cream, anyone?

My Game: Fiorentina – Spezia

I was there for a Serie A game on Halloween in 2021. The opponent was Spezia, from a coastal town to the west, in Liguria, probably best known to foreigners as the place where one changes trains on the way to the Cinque Terre . This was only their second season ever in Serie A — the first was last year — so an easy win for the home side was expected.

However, especially with Juventus losing to Verona the day before, every local person I spoke to begged me not to express any such confidence. If you want to get to know a local place, do one of two things: Go to an AA meeting (they have them in English all over Europe) or ask somebody like your hotel clerk or waiter or cab driver about the local soccer team. As it is in Manchester, so it is in Florence, and everywhere else!

Not exactly like the medieval core of Florence …

Fiorentina did romp, 3-0, on a hat trick (in Italian it’s a tripletta ) by a 22-year-old Serb named Dušan Vlahović whom everyone — and I mean everyone, from the cabbie to the waiter to the clerk — assured me would  not be playing for Fiorentina next year. Such is life in the second tier of the top tier: Find or develop a top young player? Great, but you don’t get to keep him. Everyone agreed that they just want him to leave Italy, and both Man City and Spurs have been “linked.”

Their second goal, which settled things, was a thing of such perfectly built magic that by the time it got to the big Serb, I had already gasped openly three times. Fiorentina, as one local told me, “play some lovely stuff,” so when they get to relax and do their thing against an overmatched club just trying to stay up, it’s a sight to behold.

Here are the highlights, which for me don’t show enough of the second goal.

I thought the best player on the pitch was Fiorentina’s #8, Riccardo Sapponara, and every local person I said this to had the same twofold reaction: impressed that an American would pick up on the silky ways of an attacking midfielder, and then insistent that but for injuries, his age (29) and his head not being right, he also would have left long ago.

For me, as always, the fun was in the stands.

There are two great schools of supporter culture in the world, what we might call the Spontaneous Occasional and the Organized Constant. England is the greatest purveyor of the former, with chants and songs emanating from who knows where but all at once, and tied to what’s happening on the field.

The Curva Fiesole pregame.

Italy, much of Europe, all of South America, and the US are of the other school, wherein a group of leaders call out a song and thousands of people behind a goal sing it for a while, often while waving flags and jumping. This is the Curva Fiesole , a writhing, purple, bouncing and occasionally shirtless carnival that only takes a break for halftime.

Italy also has club anthems, and Fiorentina has one of the oldest. Now known simply as “Oh Fiorentina,” it was actually written by a 12-year-old (!) in 1930, but the version you hear now was recorded in 1965 by Narciso Parigi, who later acquired the rights and donated them to the Fiorentina supporters association.

At one point in each half, the curva started a song to the tune of Bella Ciao, an old anti-fascist song from the 30s. The whole crowd joined in and started bouncing, and while they weren’t singing the original lyrics, I thought I might be involved in a real, live political and historical moment.

The next day I played a recording of it for a cab driver, and he said, “No, they’re singing that if you aren’t bouncing, you’re a Juventus fan.”

A final note on seeing a game at Fiorentina: the food and drink. You can drink in your seats, which explains why many Brits go groundhopping in Europe, but the food at the Franchi seems to consist mainly of popcorn and ice cream. In Florence!

Just another sign that, if you like your football old-fashioned, sunny, and filled with flag waving and singing, drop 35 Euro sometime for a ticket to Fiorentina.

Sightseeing in Florence

Where to begin? I have spent a fair amount of time in Florence, because I used to lead hiking tours in the countryside around there and still have good friends in Chianti, but all I can tell you is that a few days in Florence are a must in one’s lifetime. I like the Hotel Silla just across the river, and I suggest going during the not-summer, when the crowds and heat combine to make it something other than pleasant.

Stadio Artemio Franchi

Stadio Artemio Franchi

Club: ACF Fiorentina | Opening: 1931 | Capacity: 43,147 seats

History and description

Stadio Artemio Franchi officially opened on 13 September 1931 with a match between Fiorentina and Admira Wien (1-0), though it took until 1932 for the stadium to be completely finished.

The stadium was initially called Stadio Giovanni Berta, and already very much resembled the stadium of today. It had a capacity of about 45,000 places.

In 1934, Stadio Berta was one of the playing venues of the 1934 World Cup, during which it hosted one first round match and the quarter-final between Italy and Spain (and replay of said match).

After the Second World War, the stadium got renamed Stadio Comunale, which it would keep until 1993.

The addition of multiple metal stands brought capacity to about 70,000 places in the 1950s, though may fans got hurt when one such stand collapsed in 1957.

Stadio Comunale hosted one of the two semi-finals during the 1968 European Championships. Just over 20,000 spectators saw Yugoslavia beat England 1-0.

The stadium changed little in the next decades until it got selected as a playing venue for the 1990 World Cup , and a major refurbishment was required.

During the 1990 World Cup, Stadio Comunale hosted three group matches and the quarter-final between Argentina and Yugoslavia (0-0).

Over the years, the state of Stadio Artemio Franchi has significantly deteriorated, and Fiorentina have therefore looked to build a new stadium. First plans were presented in 2008, and after multiple delays and changes, concrete plans were presented in March 2017 for the construction of a new 40,000-seater stadium . However, the green light has yet to be given and no concrete timelines exist at the moment.

How to get to Stadio Artemio Franchi

Stadio Artemio Franchi is located towards the north-east of Florence at about 2 kilometres from the historic city centre. The walk from the Duomo in the historic centre takes about half an hour.

The stadium lies only two blocks from train station Campo di Marte, which is almost solely served by regional trains . A change at Florence’s main Santa Maria Novella station will likely be necessary.

Alternatively, one can take bus 17 from Santa Maria Novella or Piazza San Marco (which lies three blocks north of the Duomo).

If arriving by car from the Milan-Napels motorway, take exit Firenze Sud, follow the Varlungo Marco Polo viaduct toward the city, cross the bridge, and follow the signs (Stadio) to Stadio Artemio Franchi.

Address: Viale Manfredo Fanti 4, 50137 Firenze

Eat, drink, and sleep near Stadio Artemio Franchi

Stadio Artemio Franchi is located in a generally quiet residential area. It will not be hard to find a café or a place to get something to eat, but Florence’s city centre is obviously much more pleasant to pass some time.

There are a few hotels directly near the stadium. MSNSUITES Palazzo Lombardo and Casa Schlatter both get good reviews, while Hostel 7 Santi is a cheaper alternative. Click here to see all hotels near Stadio Artemio Franchi.

Alternatively, one could opt to pick a hotel in between the stadium and Florence’s city centre. Hotel Della Robbia , Hotel Villa Liana , and Hotel Regency are some of the options. Click here for an overview of hotels in Florence’s city centre.

Fiorentina Tickets

Tickets for Fiorentina games can be bought online via Ticketone , at the Fiorentina Point at Via dei Sette Santi 28r at two blocks from the stadium, or at the official club store at I Gigli shopping centre north-west of the city.

Ticket prices typically start at €20.00 for a seat at one of the curves, and range between €30.00 and €70.00 for a seat at one of the long sides. Tickets are much cheaper if bought in advance, but prices may get increased for a few high-profile matches.

You can find a seating map here . For more information email [email protected] .

Fiorentina director Joe Barone dies at age 57 following collapse at Viola match Sunday against Atalanta

Fiorentina's match against atalanta on sunday was postponed following barone's sudden collapse.

untitled-design-2024-03-19t161017-405.png

Fiorentina general manager Joe Barone died at age 57, the Italian club announced Tuesdasy. Barone, born in Sicily, worked his entire life in the United States in the financial industry before becoming the New York Cosmos vice-president from 2017 to 2019 where he began his working relationship with businessman Rocco Commisso. When the Italian-American businessman became the owner at Fiorentina, he chose Barone to become his lieutenant at the Italian club, beginning in the summer 2019. 

La Fiorentina piange Joe Barone https://t.co/VIvWI9P1Jk — ACF Fiorentina (@acffiorentina) March 19, 2024

Barone collapsed before the Atalanta-Fiorentina game on Sunday and was flown by helicopter to the intensive care unit at Milan's San Raffaele hospital, while the game was postponed considering the critical conditions of the Fiorentina executive. After surgery, the club announced on Monday that he remained on life support and his conditions were still critical. 

Fiorentina announced his death Tuesday.

"It is with deep sorrow and immense sadness that Fiorentina confirms the loss of one of its figureheads, a person who has marked the recent history of the club and who will never be forgotten. General Director Giuseppe Barone passed away today at the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan after suddenly falling ill on Sunday. Rocco Commisso and his family, Daniele Pradè, Nicolas Burdisso, Alessandro Ferrari, Vincenzo Italiano, Cristiano Biraghi and everyone associated with Fiorentina are utterly devastated by the terrible loss of a man who showed great professionalism and gave his heart and soul for these colors. He was a treasured friend who always stayed strong in the happiest and, above all, the most difficult moments. The entire Viola world sends its heartfelt condolences to Giuseppe's wife Camilla, his children and the entire Barone family during this time of immense sorrow."

How to cook the Italian t-bone steak Bistecca alla Fiorentina to perfection.

20130108-130210.jpg

Italian cuisine is not just about carbs such as bread, pizza and pasta but we have aslo good meat dishes. In Particular in Tuscany we find the Bistecca alla Fiorentina a meat dish from Florence , a massive t-bone steak that should be at least 4 cm tick and one kilo of weight. The perfect Fiorentina steak comes from cows of the Chianina breed . A native cattle of Tuscany which is reared outdoor and fed with grasses according to a strict discipline. The diet of the animals will confer high nutritional values to the beef. When buying the meet from the local butcher in Tuscany you should make sure that the cut has enough fillet, as they tend to cut it out and sell it apart, however the best Fiorentina steak must have plenty of fillet attached.

20130108-130227.jpg

The cooking of the steak is rather simply but you should follow the traditional steps if you want to obtain the perfect results. First of all it should be grilled on noble woods such as ash or oak which will confer the best flavours. When the coals start to ash the fire is hot enough. Spread them with a tool in order not to have an open flame or the meat will burn. Then position the stainless steal grill on the coal and use it only when is very hot.

To cook bistecca alla Fiorentina you will not need neither salt, nor oil, of course you can add a little seasoning at the end of the the cooking.

Once your “Griglia” is very hot, place the steak on each side for 3/5 minutes until nicely browned and a crust start to form. The following step is to cook the inside of the meat with the passive heat from the coal fire. So place the steak upright, sitting on the bone for 15/20 minutes. The traditional way wants a steak that is raw inside, but if you do not like your meat that way you can continue cooking it on the sides until it stops bleeding.

How to serve bistecca alla Fiorentina.

Once it is done, you can carve it on a wooden board and serve thin slices of the steak to each guest. A kilo portion will feed 3/4 people easily. Do not forget to get your best salads out and nice home made bread to go with. Of course you should serve Chianti Classico wine with the Italian T-bone Steak.

Fiorentina GM Barone on life support after cardiac arrest

  • Associated Press

Copy Link

Fiorentina general manager Joe Barone is on life support following a cardiac arrest, the club said on Monday.

Barone fell ill Sunday at the team hotel, shortly before Fiorentina's match at Atalanta , and was rushed to a hospital in Milan. The match was subsequently postponed .

Fiorentina said Sunday night that Barone, who turns 58 on Wednesday, was in "critical but stable" condition.

On Monday, the club said Barone remains hospitalized in the cardiac intensive care unit at San Raffaele Hospital in Milan.

"Joe's vital functions are being supported by artificial mechanical support techniques. No prognosis has been set," the club said. "The Barone family, the Commisso family and all of Fiorentina thank San Raffaele and all of Prof. Alberto Zangrillo's team for the work they have done since Joe was hospitalized."

Barone was born in Italy but raised in New York. His wife, Camilla, rushed up from Florence on Sunday and his four children arrived from the United States on Monday morning.

Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Italiano and several of the players also went to the hospital on Sunday. Italian media reports that some of the players were present when Barone fell ill.

Two weeks ago, Fiorentina marked the six-year anniversary of the death of captain Davide Astori, who was found dead in his hotel room after a cardiac arrest before a match at Udinese .

Fiorentina’s Serie A game with Atalanta was postponed on Sunday after chief executive Joe Barone was taken ill earlier in the afternoon.

The two teams were scheduled to meet at Gewiss Stadium in Bergamo at 6pm local time.

However, the 57-year-old was taken ill at the team hotel in the hours leading up to the fixture.

He was subsequently taken to a local hospital in Milan before the league later confirmed the cancellation.

A Serie A statement read: “The Atalanta vs Fiorentina match, scheduled for today 17 March 2024 at 18:00 CET, has been postponed to a later date.”

A statement from Fiorentina added: “ACF Fiorentina can confirm that Joe Barone is currently hospitalised at the cardiac intensive care unit at San Raffaele Hospital in Milan directed by Professor Alberto Zangrillo.

“His condition remains critical but stable. Barone is currently receiving the most advanced treatment in cardiac function and support. Another update will be published tomorrow.”

Barone is a key part of the club’s leadership team and has been in position alongside Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso since the Italian-born American billionaire purchased the club in 2019.

Fiorentina are currently eighth in the Serie A table with Atalanta four points above them in sixth.

It remains to be confirmed when the fixture will be rearranged.

Fiorentina, squadra unita nel nome di Joe Barone. Il gruppo si affida ai suoi leader

Il capitano biraghi parlerà allo spogliatoio, terracciano ripartirà da quel rapporto speciale che aveva con il dirigente viola.

  • Articolo : Joe Barone, l’ultimo saluto di Pozzallo: il corteo con le maglie viola, la Messa

Firenze, 26 marzo 2024 – Esperienza e carattere. Ma soprattutto la capacità di mettere questo a disposizione degli altri. E di farsi seguire. Qualcuno li chiama ’senatori’, altri li definiscono leader. Per tutti – specie per i più giovani o per chi sente la necessità di avere un punto di riferimento – sono una sorta di fratello maggiore con il quale (o i quali) condividere i momenti belli e (soprattutto) quelli più complicati della vita. Sul campo, come fuori.

Così nella Fiorentina che si prepara a ripartire sul campo dopo la tragedia della morte di Joe Barone , un ruolo fondamentale – accanto a Italiano – dovranno averlo quei giocatori che nello spogliatoio indossano bene i panni della guida. Del capo. Del capitano, come nel caso di Cristiano Biraghi .

Giocatore dal carattere forte, dalla personalità importante. Lui, Biraghi che quella promozione, quei gradi da capitano, se li è messi addosso dopo che il gruppo, lo spogliatoio, ha deciso di eleggerlo a punto di riferimento. Biraghi – anche dopo quel faccia a faccia ’personale’ con Commisso, sabato pomeriggio – parlerà al gruppo nei prossimi giorni, nelle prossime ore. Insieme a Italiano, certo, ma per rendere ancora più forte il messaggio della società e dell’allenatore che dal dramma di Barone vogliono far rinascere qualcosa di prezioso. Di magico. Appunto nel nome e nel segno del direttore generale.

Biraghi indossa e ha indossato con orgoglio e personalità la fascia che la Fiorentina ha dedicato ad Astori e ancora Biraghi farà sì che nell’atteggiamento e nelle sensazioni contrastanti e complicate che hanno vissuto i suoi compagni dallo choc di Bergamo in poi, la squadra possa raggiungere e tenere una compattezza decisiva a reagire in un momento tanto difficile.

Biraghi ma anche Terracciano e Milenkovic . Eccoli gli altri due senatori, leader silenziosi, della Fiorentina di oggi.

Il portiere, molto legato a Commisso e a Barone, ha vissuto i giorni del ricovero del dg a Milano in primissima persona. Poi il lavoro sul campo, quello accanto ai compagni di squadra che vedono in lui un esempio di professionalità. Terracciano, nonostante le mille volte in cui ha dovuto ripartire dalle retrovie per riprendersi il posto fra i titolari, lo ha sempre fatto con correttezza, determinazione e motivazioni che sono state d’esempio per lo spogliatoio.

Terracciano e appunto Milenkovic. Sì, il difensore serbo è il terzo dei leader della Fiorentina di Italiano. Lui la maglia viola la indossa da un’infinità di tempo e ha saputo scavalcare situazioni (anche personali) a volte complicate. Ha saputo mettersi in discussione e reagire e l’ha sempre fatto a testa alta. Con l’orgoglio e gli stimoli giusti. Quelli che Milenkovic ha consegnato e consegna ai compagni.

Colpito dal dramma di Barone, il difensore centrale fa parte di quei giocatori che nel vuoto di queste ore, di questi giorni che accompagnano la Fiorentina alla ripartenza, sanno tenere accesa la luce delle motivazioni e del sogno di fare qualcosa di bello e straordinario.

Anche e soprattutto nel segno di Joe Barone.

Joe Barone has sadly passed away one day before his 58th birthday. Hailed for his dedication and passion, Fiorentina’s CEO will be remembered for his eagerness to bring Italian soccer to new heights.

The club released a statement on Tuesday that read, “It is with deep sorrow and immense sadness that Fiorentina confirms the loss of one of its figureheads, a person who has marked the recent history of the club and who will never be forgotten. General Director Giuseppe Barone passed away today at the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan after suddenly falling ill on Sunday.

Rocco Commisso and his family, Daniele Pradè, Nicolas Burdisso, Alessandro Ferrari, Vincenzo Italiano, Cristiano Biraghi and everyone associated with Fiorentina are utterly devastated by the terrible loss of a man who showed great professionalism and gave his heart and soul for these colors. He was a treasured friend who always stayed strong in the happiest and, above all, the most difficult moments.

The entire Viola world sends its heartfelt condolences to Giuseppe’s wife Camilla, his children and the entire Barone family during this time of immense sorrow.”

Despite receiving surgery in Milan, the Italian-born American succumbed to the damage caused by the cardiac arrest he suffered over the weekend, an event which led to the postponement of Fiorentina’s Serie A match against Atalanta on Sunday and an outpouring of support from across the Italian soccer community.

Best High-Yield Savings Accounts Of 2024

Best 5% interest savings accounts of 2024.

Born in southern Sicily in 1966, Barone moved to Brooklyn at the age of eight. Following a career in banking, he began working for Mediacom and later accepted the vice-presidency role at New York Cosmos, both owned by Fiorentina President Rocco Commisso . In 2019, Barone joined Commisso’s Tuscan project with the club battling poor form and financial issues.

Barone’s legacy in Florence includes the construction of Viola Park, Fiorentina’s new training centre which features 12 training fields, two small stadiums and hotel rooms. As CEO, he was also charged with overseeing the women’s team and title-winning youth sector . For five years, Barone masterminded Fiorentina's player transfer strategy, working alongside Sporting Director Daniel Pradè who remained at his bedside until Barone’s children Gabriella, Salvatore, Giuseppe and Pietro arrived at San Raffaele Hospital from New York on Monday.

During his tenure, Barone helped elevate the men’s team from near relegation in Serie A to consecutive qualifications for European competitions. In 2023, Fiorentina went all the way to the UEFA Conference League Final. Come May, Vincenzo Italiano’s men could make it two in a row by winning April’s quarter-final against Viktoria Plzen and then eliminating the winner of Club Brugge and PAOK in the semis.

With Italian soccer suffering from stagnation and diminishing global appeal in English-speaking areas, Barone will be remembered best in the soccer world as an Italian-American who stepped up to bring fresh ideas and leadership from abroad, someone who gave a portion of his life to Calcio and its quest to return to the big stage after decades of mismanagement.

March Mourning

This is not the first time that Fiorentina fans have been left shellshocked at this time of the year. In March 2018, the club was shaken by the death of then-captain Davide Astori, who died of cardiac arrest during his sleep at a hotel in Udine before their away match against Udinese.

Just six years on from Astori’s tragedy, Florence is again ‘sotto shock’ (under shock) with Barone’s passing. Tributes have poured in from the Fiorentina Fans Association and some of the city’s most revered individuals including Cardinal Giuseppe Betori, who made known his appreciation for Barone’s passion and dedication, while Joseph Commisso (son of Rocco) took to Instagram:

“Giuseppe Barone was like a best friend and another father to me. He was always so generous and kind. He was always trying to help out in anyway that he can. He was a family man who had so much care and love for others. He developed so many strong relationships over the many years with his family, the soccer world, politics, the fans and so many others. He massively helped deliver our Rocco B. Commisso Viola Park, which is one of the best soccer training facilities in the world!

He loved what he did! He lived his dream. He put in everything he had for Fiorentina and the New York Cosmos. I am so proud that he was our General Manager. I will miss him so dearly. This immense loss is just so devastating and shocking.”

It was announced by the FIGC, the Italian Football Federation, that, effective immediately, there will be a minute of silence before all league matches until the completion of the next round of Serie A when Fiorentina hosts AC Milan at the Stadio Artemio Franchi on March 30th.

FLORENCE, Italy (AP) — Fiorentina general manager Joe Barone has died following a cardiac arrest, the club said Tuesday. He was 57.

Barone fell ill on Sunday at the team hotel, shortly before Fiorentina’s match at Atalanta, and was rushed to a hospital in Milan. The Serie A match was subsequently postponed. Barone died at San Raffaele Hospital.

“It is with deep sorrow and immense sadness that Fiorentina confirms the loss of one of its figureheads, a person who has marked the recent history of the club and who will never be forgotten,” the club said in a statement.

“Everyone associated with Fiorentina are utterly devastated by the terrible loss of a man who showed great professionalism and gave his heart and soul for these colors. He was a treasured friend who always stayed strong in the happiest and, above all, the most difficult moments. The entire Viola world sends its heartfelt condolences to Giuseppe’s wife Camilla, his children and the entire Barone family during this time of immense sorrow.”

Barone was born in Italy but raised in New York. His wife, Camilla, rushed up from Florence on Sunday and his four children arrived from the United States on Monday morning.

Two weeks ago, Fiorentina marked the six-year anniversary of the death of captain Davide Astori , who was found dead in his hotel room after a cardiac arrest before a match at Udinese.

Fiorentina’s next match is on March 30 at home against AC Milan.

Fiorentina director Joe Barone in 'critical but stable' condition. Match postponed at Atalanta

MILAN (AP) — Fiorentina general manager Joe Barone is in “critical but stable” condition after he was rushed to hospital on Sunday following a suspected heart attack, leading to the postponement of his team's Serie A match at Atalanta.

Barone was taken to hospital in Milan by helicopter after falling ill at the team hotel in nearby Bergamo, just a few hours before kickoff.

“Fiorentina can confirm that Joe Barone is currently hospitalized at the cardiac intensive care unit at San Raffaele Hospital in Milan directed by Professor Alberto Zangrillo,” the club said in a statement .

“His condition remains critical but stable. Barone is currently receiving the most advanced treatment in cardiac function and support. Another update will be published tomorrow.”

Italian media reported that Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Italiano and several of the players immediately went to the hospital and offered support to Barone's wife, Camilla, who rushed to the hospital from Florence.

Barone's four children are set to arrive on Monday from the United States.

Barone, who turns 58 on Wednesday, was born in Italy but raised in New York.

The match was scheduled to kick off at 1700 GMT but Fiorentina requested it be postponed and the Italian league confirmed it would be played at a later date that is yet to be decided.

Some of the Fiorentina players were reportedly present when Barone fell ill.

The postponement comes less than two weeks after the six-year anniversary of the death of Fiorentina captain Davide Astori , who was found dead in his hotel room after a cardiac arrest before a match at Udinese.
