The Derby della Lanterna is unlike other rivalries in Italy which are fueled either by politics, social divisions or the historical weight.
The game divides a beautiful city and, incidentally, a stadium, in the simplest way with wonderful passion and colour; a rivalry between the old Griffin of Genoa and the young Sailor of Sampdoria; a rivalry fuelled by Genoa’s long history against Sampdoria’s relatively short one.
7 – 9 April 2018
* Only 12 spots available for this trip.
While other derbies are often characterised by violence and animosity, the Derby della Lanterna is a passionate, loyal and largely friendly family affair. The Derby of the Lantern has won many admirers over the years including Marcello Lippi who says the game is ‘the most special in Italy.’
The Marassi is famed for being one of the most atmospheric grounds in Serie A due to its close proximity to the pitch and this is never more felt than during a derby game. Experience football in Genoa and visit Derby Della Lanterna with other fans. You will meet fun and friendly people from (18-30’s) from all over the world who enjoy the beautiful game as much as you do.
A derby like no other and always full of incident, the Derby Della Laterna has a unique place in Italian football.
