ROME – Inter matches can now also be followed in … Latin.
In fact, on Twitter, some fans have recently launched a profile dedicated to the "Pediludi Societatis Internationalis Mediolani". That is: Inter.
In the account all information about the team is provided strictly in Latin (more or less). The formation of Inter in Latin? Here it is: Samirusic (Handanovic); Scriniarius (Skriniar), De Vrius (De Vrij), Godinus (Godin); Sensis (Sensi), Marcellus (Brozovic), Feretrum (Barella), Candreba (Candreva): Lautarus (Lautaro) and Lucacus (Lukaku).
Among the Inter fans who recently discovered the profile there is also Alessandro Cattelan who wrote: "I love you". Cattelan to which the profile replied: "Et nos tibi amamus, magnum nigrumceruleum virum" ("we love you too, great Nerazzurri man"). When a few weeks ago Cristiano Ronaldo wished for Inter's defeat against Napoli, the comment was: "Ut clarus histrio dicebat: in (you) ass". And here there is no need for translation.
But who are the authors of the profile?
The authors are two boys, Marco Corradi, a graduate in Modern Literature in Pavia and a journalist, and Matteo Tombolini, 27-year-old from Porto San Giorgio (Fermo), a graduate in Classical Philology, who has been working as a teacher of Italian and Latin for three years.
“We met four years ago – they told Corriere della Sera – collaborating on a football site. Then, a few months ago, the idea came: for a few weeks we had been following a similar profile with interest, which tells the exploits of the Roma team, strictly in Latin. So we decided to start a similar project. Having a journalistic background, we follow Inter in more depth in all areas: transfer market, matches, formations, daily posts, more or less serious ".
