Congratulations to Napoli, who won the scudetto yesterday! The scenes in Udine, in Napoli, and around the world—all in celebration of Napoli’s third-ever Serie A championship—were pretty cool.

Meanwhile, Milan is gearing up for *two* UEFA Champions League derbies, as Milan and Inter face off in the UCL semis.
Both matches will take place at Stadio San Siro, with the first leg on Wednesday, May 10, and the second leg on Tuesday, May 16. If you’re feeling spontaneous, there are still some San Siro tickets available on ViaGoGo. Otherwise, if you’re in the US, you can watch the matches on Paramount Plus. (P.S. You may need a VPN to stream the game and/or find tickets.)
In other big sports news, the Giro d’Italia starts tomorrow. For in-depth coverage of the Giro, check out thenewsletter where you will find the 2023 Giro d’Italia Pre-Race Cheat Sheet. The winner will be crowned in Rome on May 28th.
Indeed, it’s practically coronation season in Italy these days. Who else might be crowned in Italy? Probably not this person. But bless her heart for not giving up hope.
Have a nice weekend!
