The final of the Italian Cup between Fiorentina and Napoli transcends sports into a political scandal: the weak rule of law to the power of the mafias present also in football. Saturday afternoon began with hordes of fans – or would have to call them criminals – taking over the streets, terrorizing and destroying police patrols. Continued with an ultra Roma, an old acquaintance of the authorities, firing his pistol against Napoli fans, seriously wounding one of them and then running away to be reached and lynched.
