Fiorentina was sanctioned with a suspended closed stand match, after racist chants were uttered by ultras against three Juventus players, Serie A decided on Tuesday.
Insults were aimed at Dusan Vlahovic, Moise Kean and Weston McKennie ahead of Sunday's 1-0 home defeat by Juve.
Serie A specified that this reprieve would run for one year, and that at the slightest new racial action, it would be transformed into a firm sanction for one match, while providing for additional sanctions for each reiteration.
These racial abuses are part of a series of incidents in Italian football, where far-right fan groups are regularly present. Which results in increasingly frequent discrimination in the stands.
In August, the United Nations committee in charge of combating racism “sounded the alarm” about Italian football, denouncing acts of “physical and verbal violence against players of African origin ".
In addition, the word "gypsy" is notably used by fan groups as an insult aimed at players from Eastern Europe and the Blakans, regardless of their origins.
