Report

Bianchi di Santo Spirito were the Champions most often from the 1950s to the 1970s, including a 10 year reign from 1969 to 1978. Azzurri di Santa Croce took over the mantle from 1979 to 1995 winning almost all the Finals during that period. From then on the winners roll has been more mixed, with Bianchi and Azzurri getting on the winners roll frequently, as well as Rossi di Santa Maria Novella on five occasions.
