Last night Venezia came through the play-off final to make a return to Serie A after 19 years. Down to nine players by the end of the second leg, and with Cittadella needing just one more goal to win promotion, it was Venezia who scored in injury time to finish off the tie. Venezia sta sull’acqua e muore piano piano That last season in the top flight, 2001/02, was a disastrous one for both Venezia and Fiorentina. Cesare Prandelli had taken the Venice side from Serie B the previous season, but by October, Maurizio Zamparini decided it was time for a change. In those first six games, Venezia had failed to collect a single point. It also included a 3-1 defeat in Florence, a game which would have a massive impact on the rest of Fiorentina’s season.
