is now available

If football is a "total social matter", then this phenomenon of our time must be analysed from many points of view. This is what happens in the present volume, where a group of historians, anthropologists, political scientists, linguists, writers, statisticians, economists and musicologists offer a particular point of view on the world of football. Also thanks to the original choice of themes and the rigorous but accessible style of writing, the authors propose to stimulate cultural debate and expand knowledge about the sport most loved by Italians.
