Episode 2629: Un Amore Senza Limiti
Napoli have won their third Serie A title, moving beyond the reach of their last challengers with a 1-1 draw at Udinese.
The championship is a brilliant achievement by an outstanding young team, led by a manager who has confirmed his place on the legendary tier of Italian coaching.
We’re joined by former Roscommon goalkeeper Shane Curran, who found himself touring the Bay of Naples just as they landed the big one – the right man in the right place at the right time.
Then we analyse what it means with writer Tobias Jones, who was soaking up the scudetto atmosphere in Naples this week.
The most extraordinary city in Europe has just produced the most moving football story for a generation. It's a story that seems (& the religious undercurrents are constant) full of meaning, redemption and liberation.
