Serie A can take measures that have already been implemented in other countries and leagues to curb violence among football fans
Recently there was a strong fight between Inter Milan and Napoli's fans before starting the match for the Italian League. According to the newspaper Marca de España, the press in that country says that a van with Naples supporters was surrounded by Milan's fans and when the first got out of the car, the strong dispute began. The balance of the fight left four people stabbed and an Inter's fan hit and seriously injured, who despite all the efforts of the doctors did not resist and died.

During the match, Inter's fans repeatedly insulted the Neapolitan player Kalidou Koulibaly with racist comments that disturbed him until he was sent to the expulsion. According to the Spanish newspaper ABC, the player shared the following message on his social media: "I'm sorry for the defeat and above all to have left my brothers! But I'm proud of the color of my skin. To be French, Senegalese, Neapolitan: man. "
Milan's prosecutor office punished the seven fans, with a Daspo (the prohibition of access to the sports venues), not only at the national level but also internationally, according to what was reported by the Italian media. In addition, according to the ESPN website, "the Serie A Sporting Judge punished Inter with two home games behind closed doors, plus a third without the fans of the fund."
A very similar case was presented in 2010, when there was a strong confrontation between fans of Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and Olympique Marseille, which left one person dead and five men arrested; According to the Argentine digital newspaper Infobae, to avoid this type of events, "the government tightened the legislation and introduced the possibility of preventing amateur travel from one city to another, something that only applies to certain parties. Otherwise, the police cordon off the fans of the visiting team and prevent them from coming into contact with the locals."
Another case involving fights between soccer fans was presented in 2018, when River Plate fans attacked the Boca Juniors bus just before the Libertadores Cup grand final began, which caused the match to be postponed and a triple police cord used during the match at the Santiago Bernabéu.
The Italian league could implement the same measures of the previous cases, in addition to keeping a central register with the names and data of the people who have been involved in violent acts related to football, as has been done in Germany since 1992.
Also, I could take the example of Real Madrid, a team that has managed to finish with the Ultras Sur with decisions such as closing the public sector of the stands of the stadium where these people were located and creating a "Young Stand" that was an example for the rest of the hobby, supporting and not insulting. For calcium, it is essential to implement these policies in a season in which they seek to recover the prestige as a league.
