If football is a 'total social matter', then this phenomenon of our age must be analysed from multiple points of view. This is the case in this book, in which a group of historians, anthropologists, political scientists, linguists, literary scholars, statisticians, economists and musicologists offer a particular point of view on the world of football. Thanks to the original choice of themes and the rigorous but accessible style of writing, the authors propose to stimulate cultural debate and broaden knowledge about Italy's most popular sport.
