    This forum was created due to the fact that the Parma board was really dead and only 352Gialloblu posted in it. Now, all Northern club threads can be found here. Also, discuss anything about Northern Italian clubs in Serie A, B, C, D, or even Eccellenza!

    Is Ascoli considered a Northern Club? We are dead centre.

    Maybe rename it Central and Northern Clubs.

    Yeah, they're considered Northern. I think anything above Rome is really considered "Northern", and they're above Rome.

    Maybe rename it Central and Northern Clubs.

    Lazio, Marche, Abruzzo, Umbria and Toscana, are looked as Centro Italia. That area is just culturally different to "Northern Italy"

    Ascoli is undoubtly central Italy.

    Cassano, anything below Rome is south. Above Rome it is center and above Florence it is north. ;)

    Tuscany, Umbria, Marche, northern Lazio are central Italy. Abruzzi is considered more south than center.

    North starts with Liguria and Emilia Romagna.

    Southern Lazio and Abruzzi are more viewed as south. Or maybe center-south.
    As you said it's more a cultural difference than geographical (dialects and so on).

    This doesn't mean you cannot find places where Abruzzi are named as being a central region.

    Amen. The cultural "North" is different than the geographic north...so Fiorentina, Ascoli et al aren't "northern" in the same way that Brescia, Atalanta, and Verona are.

    However the cultural aspects make up the geographical boundries. In centro Italia, were not southerners and not northerners. If you said to a ascolano or anyone in that central area, that they came geographically from the north they'll look at you, like your crazy. Even my cousins in italy kept refering where we are as central italy. If I said think of northern italians, you would think of Lombardia, etc. If I said think of southern italians - Sicilia, calabria etc. If I said think of central Italy you think of toscana, marche, umbria, not a line through rome that streches from 1 coast to another. If we don't fit in as northerners or southerners in a geographical view point we must central.

    What does a city's historical affiliation or even its present place in Italian culture have anything to do with where we place its football club's BigSoccer thread?

    My friend calcio is italian culture. If Ascoli Piceno didn't have calcio, no-one would know where Ascoli is - central italy.

    It would be just the Ascoli thread in there...Unless we got some Ancona fans around here...;)

    Seriously, aussie ascoli, would you really like it to be changed to Italian Clubs: Northern and Central?

    Geographically there is a Central portion of Italy, but verbally Italians only talk of Northern and Southern Italia. I don't think "Central Italy" is even in their vocabulary....lol

    Northern and Central sounds good.

    Hopefully there comes a day where people who support teams from the central area, are on this forum these include teams such as - Ternana, Sambenedettese, Perugia, Ancona, Arezzo, Siena, Livorno, Viterbese, Fermana, Teramo, Pisa, Gubbio, Rieti, Grosetto (these are the more known teams). :eek: that will be interesting, considering nearly all these teams have a rivalry with Ascoli. Samba and Fermana, are both in the Ascoli Piceno province, for a bit of trivia. However in the next year or two Fermo will become its own province. Fermo is where Della Valle's from, and he still has his shoe factory there.


    When I was in Ascoli, my family actually refered the area as central italy. A lot of southerners probably see it as, if its not South its North.;)



    HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY.

    Actually most of italians know exactly what central italy is and would correct you if you say that Florence is a northern town or a southern town.

    Surely a fiorentino or any other italian from central Italy would correct you. ;)

    And Fiorentina, Siena, Livorno and Empoli. ;)

    La Toscana è la regione più importante dell'Italia Centrale!!!

    Perugia is no more in serie a.

    It would have been nice to see a team close by to Ascoli, like Perugia in SERIE A. We would see 25 000 at the Del Duca fully packed, not for a big team game (JUVE, MILAN, INTER, etc), thats half the city LOL.

    WHAT le marche has to be more important than toscana, lol.

    Florence is above Rome. All Italians I know, and being Italian myself, say that from Rome northward is considered "Northern Italy". I'm not really sure how you could consider Florence apart of the Central region :confused:.

    Well all italians from the central area know that their is a central part to italy. Italia centrale its known as or centro italia.

    This is an example of my home village in Ascoli Piceno, Appignano del Tronto.

    This can be classified as the Northern and Central Italian forum. Fiorentina and Ascoli fans would only post on a Central Italy forum and anyone who supports Ancona must be drinking too much grappa.

    Ternana can kiss my ass too.

    Ternana can kiss my ass too. Likewise for Cremonese and Pescara.
