Giacomelli rested for Week 17

Piero Giacomelli hasn’t been given a Serie A game this weekend, after his controversial refereeing in the Lazio-Torino game on Monday.

The Biancocelesti were incensed by the official’s decisions in their 3-1 defeat, and insisted there’s a campaign against them.

Today the AIA has announced the referees for Week 17, and Giacomelli hasn’t been assigned to a match.

Referees aren’t always involved every week, but this could be a way of taking the Trieste native out of the firing line.

Lazio’s trip to Atalanta will be refereed by Massimiliano Irrati, with Luca Banti assigned to Bologna-Juventus.

Verona welcome Milan in Sunday’s early game, and Daniele Orsato will officiate that one.

Serie A Week 17 referees:

Atalanta-Lazio – Massimiliano Irrati
Benevento-Spal – Fabrizio Pasqua
Bologna-Juventus – Luca Banti
Crotone-Chievo – Luca Pairetto
Fiorentina-Genoa – Gianpaolo Calvarese
Verona-Milan – Daniele Orsato
Inter-Udinese – Maurizio Mariani
Roma-Cagliari – Antonio Damato
Sampdoria-Sassuolo – Claudio Gavillucci
Torino-Napoli – Paolo Mazzoleni
