"The game should not be played – reads the statement of the fans of the Viola -. A part of our city è è completely on its knees, houses destroyed, lives shattered and while it continues to rain they are thinking of playing the game on Sunday as if nothing had happened. In a clear, decisive and categorical manner, the Curva Fiesole demands that the match be postponed, that energies and resources be dedicated exclusively to our people in distress and not to have a sporting event held. We demand respect for the victims, for the family members, for those who have lost everything in a few hours and still find themselves abandoned, without electricity and gas, surrounded by water".

We are working non-stop, but if it rains again over the weekend, rescue operations will become difficult. Unfortunately, the forecast does not look good".
