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
