hello everyone,

i am not very familiar with italian football, so i have this question.

do ac milan and inter milan play at the same stadium? if so, how is this
possible? how do supporters of one team stand having to share a stadium
with a rival? if they do share a stadium, who owns the building?

thanks,

-emilio

Yes. So do Roma and Lazio, Juventus and Torino, Genoa
and Sampdoria.

Matches are scheduled so that Milan and Inter never play at home
on the same week.

They do. It's no big deal. What usually happens is that
the ultras split the two "curves", the areas behind the goals.
So Roma fans usually occupy the Curva Sud (on the right of
your screens at the Olimpico), and Lazio fans the Curva Nord.
Milan fans occupy the Curva Sud (right), Inter fans the Curva Nord
(left). Juve fans the Curva Scirea (right), Torino fans the
Curva Maratona (left). Samp fans the Curva Sud, Genoa fans
the Curva Nord.

In all the above cases, the municipality owns the stadium.
And municipalities own most of the stadia in Italy.
That's why you have a lot of "Stadio Comunale" around.
I think there is only one Serie A team who owns
its own stadium, but I can't remember which (I think it's
Piacenza).

Inter and Milan are putting pressure on the City to sell
the Meazza Stadium to the clubs themselves. They see
the big revenues that English clubs who own their stadiums
are realizing and want some of that kind of revenue.

Otherwise some threats are being made to approach
sponsors and built a private stadium. Stay tuned for
more of the Relentless Pursuit of Money.

It's Reggiana.
