All-time Serie A (Italy/1st division): List of all clubs with at least one season in the Italian 1st division (87 seasons/since 1929-30/66 clubs); with Italian titles listed

By Bill Turianski on 22 December 2018;

This chart for Italy here is similar to the one I made for England, earlier this year {here: England, 1st division – all-time: List of all clubs with at least one season in the English 1st division (120 seasons/since 1888-89/65 clubs).; with English titles listed.

This chart here is in the same template as the chart I recently made, for Germany {here: All-time Bundesliga (Germany/1st division): Chart of all clubs with at least one season in the German 1st division (56 seasons/since 1963-64/55 clubs); with German titles listed.

The chart here shows the list of all clubs that have played in the Italian 1st division (Serie A).
There are 66 clubs who have played in Serie A, since it was instituted in 1929-30. (2018-19 is the 87th season of Serie A.)
Going from left to right on the chart, here is what is listed on the chart…
1). Name of club.
2). Level (aka division) that the club is in, currently [2018-19]. Levels are shown at the foot of the chart. Also, there is a small chart further below here which shows all 9 levels in the Italian football pyramid.
3). Crest & colours [home colours from 2018-19].
4). Seasons in Italian 1st Division (Serie A): 87 seasons (1929-30 to 1942-43; 1946-47 to 2018-19).
5). Consecutive seasons in the 1st division [current/2018-19] – OR – Last season that the club was previously in the 1st Division.
6). Serie A clubs for 2018-19 are shown with crest and small home kit illustration [grey column down the middle of the chart].
7). Full name of club.
8). Italian titles: Italian titles [113 seasons] (1898-1915; 1920-1943; 1946-2018). (FIGC season 1921-22 not included. No title awarded in 1927 [Torino stripped of title]. No title awarded in 2005 [Juventus stripped of title].)
