History

Current alternate league logo
Former league logo

A national basketball league was first established in Italy in 1920, with the first title won by SEF Costanza Milano. Since then, twenty different teams have won the championship, with Olimpia Milano's twenty six titles the most and Mens Sana Siena's seven consecutive titles from 2007 to 2013 also a record.

After 2007–08 season, the league was reduced from eighteen to sixteen after two clubs, Basket Napoli and Orlandina Basket, were relegated for financial irregularities and not replaced.
