(ANSA) – ROME, AUGUST 11 – “Everyone dislikes the referee: whether he is male or female, he does not change”. Words by Maria Sole Ferrieri Caputi, the first woman to referee in the men’s Serie A, which starts on 13 August. “At the base there was the passion for football – she says in an interview with Famiglia Cristiana in the issue on newsstands from today -, as a child I would have liked to play, but they were other times and mom and dad didn’t go along with me.
When at 16 I learned about the referees course by chance I was the age to decide: I signed up and discovered a world that I fell in love with, which taught me the commitment to achieve a goal and the responsibility in deciding, things come in handy in study and work. And then there is the relational dimension, beautiful for comparison with colleagues of different generations “. (ANSA).
