I was born in Milan, Italy and moved to Miami when I was eight. Despite the near-impossible task of getting quality Serie A coverage in the States during the mid-90s, I managed to always find a bar with my Father to watch Serie A matches every weekend. Later on in life, it got to the point where I would purposely do my University schedule around Champions League matches.
I started writing for ESPN Soccernet in 2008 and was their Milan correspondent for four years. After that I joined beIN Sport USA in Miami as a Producer and Serie A pundit. I appear once a week on Sirius XM FC as their Serie A correspondent.

Matteo You have written the best articles for AC milan!
You put Meazza instead of Rivera on the following paragraph. "Known for his surgically placed passes, Meazza could cut open an entire defense in a split second. Apart from this, he also had a scoring touch and was lethal in his era." in the top 20 Italian players in the first slide.
If I ever make one you'll be the first to know!
Thanks for all the good comments guys -- cheers!
Hey Matteo, just wrote a story about Milan's new approach to success. Give it a look if you have a chance: http://reb5326.wordpress.com/2013/06/12/the-new-milan/
I was wondering, what do you think happened that made Antonio Cassano and Domenico Criscito fall so out of favor with Prandelli? Cassano has not been featured with Gli Azzurri since Euro 2012!!
How about making an article on Serie A team of the year, or a best XI of the teams that got relegated (Palermo, Siena, Pescara). Just thought they might be fun pieces to write.
Keep up the good work!
Hey Matteo, I'm going to Italy this summer and was wondering if you could tell me anything about soccer in the summer. Is there a site with schedules for Milan or Juve?
Your analysis on Juve vs Bayern was one of the best articles I read on this website, please try and write a few pieces on Bayern if you get the chance.
Hey dude, I like your articles, please keep writing on Juventus (especially) and Serie A.
