1944 Campionato Alta Italia

This championship was disputed during the second World War and wasn't recognized by the FIGC until 2002, though Spezia's Scudetto is considered a "decoration".

As said above, the winner was Spezia, that at the time was called 42° Corpo dei Vigili del Fuoco della Spezia (VV.F. Spezia - Spezia Firefighters): since most of Spezia's players were drafted, the society's president had to ask the local firefighters to play for the team.

The new Commissioner of the Italian National Olympic Committee Ettore Rossi, appointed by the Italian Social Republic, organized the League of 1943-44 Alta Italia (Upper Italy), holding it until March 1944. In the south the situation was rather different: the matches were played in regional tournaments: the part about the Apulian sector was won by Conversano, while Lazio was imposed in the area of Rome.

The Campionato Alta Italia (Northern Italy Championship) was the only championship that was organized on a more than regional basis: in Central and Southern Italy many regional championship were held. The intention was to organize a national final, but the Gothic Line prevented this.
