La Viola have put the threat of relegation behind them for now, but Owen Diana worries about how they’ll rebuild for Rocco Commisso’s ambitious vision.

As the dust settled after a convulsive weekend at the bottom of Serie A, Fiorentina could breathe a huge sigh of relief. Barring a collapse of historic proportions, La Viola’s spot at the top table of Italian football is all but assured after a 2-1 win at Parma.
