Empoli 1 Grosseto 1
Equal near the top of Serie B these two teams stayed closed in this game.
Their goalscorers, Vannucchi for Empoli, and Sansovini for Grosseto both looked dangerous.
Around 5000 watched including a good contingent from Grosseto - filling most of two segments behind one goal.
It was cold but dry near the river Arno.
On a weekend when Italian football produced a possible new strategy (?) with Catania players dropping their shorts at a free kick to put off the Torino goalie.
This match included a moment when an Empoli player reversed the award of a throw-in after indicating that he was the last person to touch the ball before it went out.
My route took me back via Firenza before getting a Milan bound train and then a flight back to Berlin.
In the centre of Florence, not seen since Italia 90, those architectural masterpieces and the Uffizi gallery would inspire this visitor's heart and soul.
