Great action shots! Do the supporters have special 'celebration cars' that they take out on such occasions? I'm thinking of the third photo. That car is a bit battered.

You really convey the elation of Livorno with these. Congratulations. And take a nap today.

Congrats! The news even filtered up here. Look like it was celebrated in true Italian manner; with a lot of happy people and a lot of noise!

Congratulations!

I'm not much of a sports fan (for any sport), but I wish I could have been there for the late night celebration. Looks awesome!

Great night photos...you certainly captured the excitement of the event! Congrats to the team.

I've never understood the whole "fan" thing, though...

In this country, any player in any city will transfer to another team in another city for a dollar more in pay...

Not much loyalty there so far as I can see....

Still, when the Orlando Magic lost their final game, the streets in Orlando filled up with rabid fans trying to see their favorite players...

Don't get it!

Disclaimer: I don't like football and hate too much fuss about everything, sport included. I was there to take some photos of an event, until somebody throw a bottle of beer at me. Then I packed, went home and was very happy when a rainstorm came at 2 AM.

It reminds me of a song from my teen years called "Wild in the Streets" Nice capture.

Cool shots! I dislike fans but your photos are superb:)

Well, it does look pretty crazy. I hope everyone had fun, and your photos are great.

Same story here whenever someone wins something in football. I also tend to prefer sports with less mayhem included.

Takes me back to 1982. I was in Rimini for a few weeks when Italy won the world cup. Boy was there a party. It is a good memory.

The Greeks are exactly the same when celebrating sporting success. What great photos! I like the third one from last in particular :-)
