PostSubject: Twinnings?   Fri Oct 31, 2008 4:34 am

I read in Tim Parks' book "A season with Verona" about Twinnings in Serie A where fans of one team or city have a friendly or good-natured relationship wiht fans of another team/city.

Does Lazio have a Twinning fan relationship with any other team or city?

Grazie a tutto

Doesn't seem like it do we? Lazio fans have a long list of rival clubs but I don't know any twinnings. The masters of the forum should know though.

Ultras have friendships with certain clubs. Inter are one I think. Correct me if I'm wrong, I've never been in the stadium so I'm not fit to comment.

Correct, Caxi. Lazio's greatest "friends" in football are Inter. There is also Triestina, Ascoli, Verona and Chelsea.

Both Inter and Triestina have made banners at times against Roma which basically state that Lazio are the team of the capital.

There are some great twinnings, caled "gemellaggi" in Italian, like Genoa-Napoli and Verona-Fiorentina, when the visiting ultras have a big party together with the other team's fans. A great part of the ultras world. Very Happy

there is more info on the site ultraslazio.it
I dont have the time to translate it unfortunately.

I read somewhere about "the four blues; Lazio, Man City, Espanyol and 1860 Munchen". Now if this is correct or not i dont know, i think Espanyol is, but the rest i dont know.

I think there is some truth to this. I'm pretty certain there is a link between us and Man City.

A lot of Merda fans back Chievo too as far as I know.

Hi...I'm a newbie to this forum but have supported Lazio since i first went to watch them play in 1995.
I recently visited Milan & did the stadium museum & tour.
The tour guide was an Inter fan.When i told her that i supported Lazio,she replied that Inter & Lazio are the greatest of friends.
Fantastic forum.
Glad i found you.
Ciao 4 now. Very Happy

Welcome aboard spud cheers

This is becoming a very interesting topic. If anybody has anymore information on Lazio friendships, please post it here. It would be excellent.

I know quite a bit about tifosi all over Italia really

I must admit, I've never heard of any Lazio-Man City friendship. Most of Lazio's friendships come from political allegiances with other right wing fanbases. Similarly, many of our rivals are left-wing fanbases like Livorno, Atalanta and Bologna.

If you look closely at pictures of the Curva Nord, you'll see a Chelsea flag in the front with "blue is the colour" written on it. We also use this chant of course, modified slightly to suit Lazio.

Little Pescara in serie C consider us to be their greatest rivals, due to incidents that occurred in the 70s when they were first promoted to serie A. If they ever make it back up again, you can bet your house it'll be one hell of a crunch match. They're from Abruzzo so there's a regional aspect to it as well.

Napoli is a regional rivalry.

The Arsenal rivalry goes back to the Champions League game in 2000 (I think it was), with the Mihajlovic-Vieira incidents and racist chants from the Laziali in the stands. Simeone copped one in the face that day from Grimandi I think.

Interesting point about Hellas Verona, who are incidentally like us one of Italy's most hated clubs. This is considered just a friendship, not a gemellaggio or twinning because of their great twinning with Fiorentina, who are big rivals of Lazio.

hope some of this info helps.

As for the add,
I dont know for sure, how do Lazio fans in Rome think about it, but im sure, that fans of Zenit from Saint-Peterburg mark out Lazio fans as friends. Maybe its about blue colors for both teams. And all Lazio fans in Russia (few thousands) and Zenit fans (few millions) have friendly relationships in Russia.

Maybe its not twinnings, but an example of friendship:)

I can understand the rivalry and friendship between Lazio and other teams within the Italian league. However, I find it strange that we have rivalry and friendship outside the league. Like, why are we friends with Chelsea and Real? Anything particular happened?

this page (http://www.ultraslazio.it/rapporti.htm) has an explanation for each.

Doesn't really say much about the Lecce rivalry to be honest.

Guys don't forget these are ultra alliances. Doesn't necessarily mean the club itself or other fans identify themselves with these clubs.

Yes, and that would be the case for many of the political rivalries.
