Serie A referees are appointed and monitored by the Italian Football Referees Association (AIA).
– Each Serie A match is officiated by a team of four officials: one referee, two assistant referees, and one fourth official.
– Some of the top Serie A referees in recent years include Gianluca Rocchi, Daniele Orsato, and Paolo Valeri.
– Referees in Serie A are required to pass fitness and knowledge tests in order to maintain their officiating license.
– In addition to Serie A matches, referees may also officiate in lower-level Italian leagues and international matches.
