After the good vibes of last night's kit unveil, the Fiorentina players and coaching staff got on the bus to sort-of start the 2015-2016 season in retreat at Moena. The facilities and fields look beautiful and ready for both players and fans, and it's just rather nice to look see Joaquin and Giuseppe Rossi in purple and ready to go after the drama of recent weeks.

The squad heading up to the retreat is very youth-heavy, with Primavera players participating in every position. Players who have been busy on international duty are expected next week, but the focus for this coming week will likely be giving Paulo Sousa a chance to evaluate youngsters, such as Matias Vecino and Leonardo Capezzi, while starting the conditioning process with the rest of the squad ahead of the International Champions Cup.

There will also be three friendlies in the coming week, which will almost definitely be streamed live on We will, of course, have full coverage right here on Viola Nation.
