900 Years of Hate | Derby Days Lombardia | Brescia Calcio v Atalanta B.C.

You know Milan,
You know its world famous football clubs.
You know its world famous derby.
But what you probably didn’t know, is that in the same region of Italy just 40 minutes up the road, there’s two other clubs who have just as fascinating rivalry of their own that involves tanks, pigs, and medieval battles, but hasn’t seen a derby in thirteen years.

Until now.

Off the back of our insane trip to Superclåsico in Buenos Aires, Derby Days is back for season 5 and this time it’s all about “The Wait”. The intense rivalries between clubs from England to Germany to Italy that haven’t met for 7, 8 even 13 years. What happens to a rivalry when there’s an absence of meetings? Is it a case of absence makes the heart grow fonder or is the rivalry even more heated thanks to the anxious wait?

In Episode 3, the final episode for this season, we head to Lombardy, Italy, for the first derby in more than a decade between Brescia Calcio and Atalanta B.C. Two clubs who share a rivalry that goes way beyond football and into every facet of local culture from the dialect to the food to the culture of war and violence in the region. Despite being provincial neighbours, different time spent in different divisions meant the two had been suffering their longest derby drought, until this season, where they would both finally meet in Serie A.

A massive thank you to all involved who helped, for whom without, making this film wouldn’t be possible. In particular, Tobias, PiereLuigi, Ale, both Andrea’s, Leo, Michaeli, Dario, Gian, Chiara, Matteo, Guilia, Tommy, and of course Claudio.

A special thank you Gav for 75 per cent of the title.

  • We just had the first game of a Derby in the COPA LIBERTADORES for the first time ever between Gremio x Internacional in the ARENA DO GREMIO. The game was considered in Brazil to be the game of the end of the world! I hope you guys were there at the first game that had an amazing show of football and showed how fiery and intense this derby is off AND on the field. COPA90 followed GREMIO at the finals for the same championship and did a brilliant job showing the culture and passion that there is here in RIO GRANDE DO SUL, now its time for you guys to see how two teams that had stadiums just a few kilometers from each other fed off one another to continually grow into being two of the biggest soccer teams of BRAZIL! Hopefully you guys will be around for the second game in the BEIRA RIO!

  • but the question is why atalanta as such a famous and rich team has only become really strong in the last few years? they are supposed to be powerful long time ago right? should have got 1 or 2 league titles and several cup titles, but why so far only a single cup triumph back in 1963?
