“Mai scudetto fu più meritato” [Never was a Scudetto more richly deserved] by Daniele Giannini, the story of the 2000/01 season
“Mai scudetto fu più meritato” [Never was a Scudetto more richly deserved] by Daniele Giannini is a book that recounts AS Roma’s legendary 2000/01 title win, featuring a foreword by Damiano Tommasi.
It’s been 20 years since Roma last won the Scudetto, but for anyone who was around the experience that intense, unforgettable season, it still feels like yesterday. Nobody will ever tire of reliving each of the matches that saw that team write their names into the history books forever. From the long, exciting summer ahead of the start of the season, which saw AS Roma assemble a team truly capable of winning the title, to the little-known or never-before-revealed stories that interspersed those 34 matches, the 2000/01 season was packed with hope, celebration, disappointment and moments of pure ecstasy. And all the while, the deep, nagging fear that Roma might not do it – that the team might fail at the final hurdle. Then, on 17 June 2001, under a burning sun, the victory of all victories. It sparked endless celebrations that began in earnest the moment the RAI commentator uttered the immortal words: “Never was a Scudetto more richly deserved.”
