And today’s Italian word is…sciarpata

Zingarelli, the Italian dictionary, includes several new football related words in its 2016 edition.

One newcomer to the Italian language is sciarpata, meaning a choreographed routine in which fans collectively hold or wave football scarves. The word derives from the Italian for scarf, ‘sciarpa’.

Holding scarves aloft is hardly unique to Italy, but sciarparta is when it’s taken to a higher level of co-ordination there, as this clip of Juventus fans shows.
