Italian Soccer Experience
Conducted in English

Saul Steinberg famously observed that it is impossible to understand America without a profound knowledge of baseball. The same could be said for Italy and soccer; for many, calcio and Italian society are inextricably intertwined, and “the beautiful game” is never just a game. This course traces the history of Italian soccer and the players, trainers and managers who have shaped it. The technical aspects of Italian soccer—rules, tactics, strategies, psychology, and training—will be explored during the training hours. A field trip to the Museum of Soccer in Coverciano and the world-renowned coaching school forms an integral part of the course.   

Travel during class time is strictly prohibited.
