This paper traces the path of the author’s book Il calcio italiano: 1898-1981. Economia e società, published in 2015. The subject is explored from three different levels: 1) macro-economic; 2) micro-economic; 3) economy and society. As for the first, the source of revenue of football has fundamentally changed, with a switch from the monopoly of the soccer stadium’s income to the monopoly of television, media and sponsorship rights. Costs have increased constantly also due to the football market. As for the second point, clubs turned into SpA (società per azioni), although the profit-making remains a chimera. The various professionals invloved also have changed accordingly. As for the third point, the increasing prominence of the Italian Serie A Football League and the instrumental role played by FIGC over the Italian National team, confirm the inability to manage large cash flow: the football is sick.
