Prepare for a unique and passionate duel at an iconic stadium which will soon disappear from the face of the earth.

History of the Derby della Madonnina

The derby between Inter Milan and AC Milan is known as the Derby della Madonnina. It is named after the statue of the Virgin Mary on top of the Duomo, which is known as the Madonnina. AC Milan was founded in 1899. Inter Milan came about in 1908 after a rift within AC Milan. A difference of opinion about allowing foreign players led part of the members to separate and continue as Inter Milan.

During the early years, the Milanese clubs rarely played against each other. It wasn’t until the introduction of the national competition in 1926 when the clubs started facing each other at least twice a year. The rivalry increased significantly during the 1960s, when both clubs grew into absolute superpowers in international football. AC Milan won the European Cup II in 1963, followed by Inter Milan in 1964 and 1965. After Inter Milan lost the final in 1967, AC Milan once again became the best in Europe in 1969. It led to fierce duels between the two and a heavily contested national title, the Scudetto.

Following 2010, there were some difficult years for both clubs. Juventus FC was untouchable in Serie A with nine consecutive titles. Inter had to settle for 9th place in 2013, while AC Milan didn’t manage to do better than 10th place in 2015. After these years of struggling, both Milanese clubs are back on top. Inter Milan celebrated their 19th title in 2021. AC Milan couldn’t afford to stay behind and won their 19th Scudetto in 2022 too. This also returned the Derby della Madonnina to its former glory. Not only is the derby a competition between the two rivals, it is also a duel between two favourites for the national prizes.

Inter Milan vs. AC Milan: the most memorable encounters

May 11th, 2001: Inter Milan – AC Milan 0 – 6

The clubs from Milan only had supporting roles in Serie A during the 2000-2001 series. Both were in the sub-top on the 30th day, behind eventual champion AS Roma by 20 points. Still, it turned into an unforgettable derby. I Rossoneri delivered the biggest victory in the history of the Milanese duel. Within as little as two minutes, Comandini got the red-blacks ahead by 1-0. 15 minutes later, the offense player also realised a score of 2-0. They were the only two goals Comandini scored while playing for AC Milan. After half-time, a tragedy unfolded for Inter. Giunti, Shevchenko twice and Serginho completed the half-dozen goals. At the end of the season, Inter Milan came in barely ahead of their fellow city team, but this was a beating by their arch-rival the supporters have still not forgotten.

April 12th, 2005: Inter Milan – AC Milan 0 – 3

In 2005, Inter Milan and AC Milan met each other in the quarter finals of the Champions League. The first duel was won by AC Milan by 2-0. The return, once again at San Siro, was a duel with a deadly tempo. The red-blacks were out to deal a decisive blow as soon as possible. After half an hour of play, they succeeded. Shevchenko scored the 0-1 goal. This meant Inter had to score as many as four.

They first seemed to manage in the 70th minute, when Cambiasso headed in the 1-1. Strangely, the goal was disqualified and the shooter received a yellow card. The home audience exploded. Dozens of rockets and torches were launched into the penalty area from the stand behind the goal. Goalkeeper Dida was hit in the process, inflicting first degree burns to the Brazilian. The match was only resumed half an hour later, without Dida but with substitute Abbiati. But less than a minute later, the rockets started flying onto the field again. Referee Merk called it quits. AC Milan won the duel by 0-3 per regulations, meaning it continued to the semi-finals with a total score of 5-0. The Rossoneri then went on to make it to the final, but lost it to Liverpool FC after penalties.

January 26th, 2021: Inter Milan – AC Milan 2- 1

A bizarre derby in the quarter finals of the Coppa Italia which was won by Inter Milan during the last seconds. However, there was only one topic of conversation afterwards: the red card for Zlatan Ibrahimović. Of all players, it was he who had placed Inter at 1-0 and became the oldest goal scorer in the history of the derby at 39 years and 115 days. Shortly after, the Swede was given a yellow card for a minor foul, which ended up costing him dearly.

At half-time, a row suddenly broke out between Ibrahimović and Lukaku. The Belgian was furious and had to be calmed down by his teammates. Both parties involved in the fight were given a yellow card, which meant the Swede was told to hit the showers. In a twist of events, it was Lukaku who scored the equalising goal by penalty after half-time. Both teams prepared for overtime, but Christian Eriksen changed all that. The substitute scored an amazing goal using a free kick in the 98th minute. This meant the game was over and the press could focus on the duel between Zlatan and Lukaku.

Interesting facts about Inter Milan – AC Milan

  • From 1909 through to the 2021-2022 season, Inter Milan and AC Milan faced each other 232 times. The clubs are a pretty even match. Inter won 85 times; AC Milan 78 times. With a balance of 320-307, the goal count is in favour of Inter too.
  • Inter’s top scorer in the Derby della Madonnina is Giuseppe Meazza with 12 goals. The fact that he was once successful for AC Milan as well is something long forgotten by supporters. István Nyers (11) scored over 10 goals too.
  • Javier Zanetti played the highest number of derbies for Inter. The Argentinian faced AC Milan no fewer than 47 times between 1995 and 2014.

The trophy cabinets of Inter Milan and AC Milan

Along with Juventus FC, Inter Milan and AC Milan are the most successful clubs in Italy.

AC Milan has a total of 49 prizes in its trophy cabinet, as opposed to 42 for Inter Milan*. Still, Inter Milan has been able to claim more national trophies. Both clubs became national champion 19 times. Inter won the Coppa Italia 8 times, where AC Milan won 5. The red-blacks, however, won one Italian Supercoppa more (7-6).

Internationally, AC Milan is significantly more successful than Inter Milan though. For instance, AC Milan won the Champions League no fewer than 7 times and only has Real Madrid (14 victories) ahead of them in Europe. AC Milan also won the Europacup II twice, the European Supercup 5 times and the World Cup for club teams 4 times. The only trophy missing is the Europa League goblet. Inter Milan enjoys significant international success as well. With 2 Champions Leagues, three Europa Leagues and three World Cups, the club is counted among the European top.

* Prizes have been updated up to and including the season of 2021/2022.

San Siro during the Derby della Madonnina

My project (2)

With a capacity of over 80,000, San Siro (officially Stadio Giuseppe Meazza) is the largest stadium in Italy. During the derby with AC Milan, this legendary football temple is always virtually sold out. Although both teams consider San Siro their home base, it definitely matters whether you are playing ‘home’ or ‘away’. As the home team, Inter is entitled to significantly more entry tickets than its rival.

The Derby della Madonnina is one of the most significant derbies in Europa. What is special about it is that the atmosphere around the match, despite the sportive rivalry, is rather relaxed. Things tended to get out of hand between the supporters now and then during the 1970s, but that hasn’t been the case for a long time now. Supporters of both clubs are often each other’s family members, friends or colleagues. Due to the impact of the duel on the city, both supporter organisations signed a non-aggression treaty which is adhered to properly. The animosity between the clubs is these days limited to creating banners to mock the rival and singing sarcastic songs. This makes the atmosphere during the duel amazing. With unequalled passion, both supporter camps are standing firmly behind their team for 90 minutes. It’s something that is sure to impress you immensely during your football trip.

Apart from the fantastic atmosphere during the derby, San Siro is much too big for many of the other matches. Inter and AC Milan both have the highest spectator average in Serie A. Nonetheless, not even half the stadium is filled for less appealing opponents. There is also the fact that very little has been done to renovate the stadium since the major modifications of 1990, something which causes many football fans to simply watch the duels on the television. It therefore makes sense that San Siro will be demolished after the Winter Olympics of 2026 and that a new stadium will rise at nearly the same location. This stadium is inspired by the Duomo Cathedral and as such has already gained the nickname ‘The Cathedral’. The stadium will have a capacity of 65,000 with stands situated very close to the field to create an unforgettable atmosphere.

Before that happens, you have just a few years left to attend the Derby di Milano at the iconic San Siro. A football trip by Voetbaltravel ensures you of tickets for this legendary duel.

Practical information

San Siro is situated in the eponymous neighbourhood of West Milan, at about five kilometres of the city centre. It is easily accessible by public transport.

The easiest way to reach it is by metro. From the Piazza Del Duomo in the heart of the city, you take the red metro line 1 (stop Duomo) and get off after ten minutes at the stop Lotto Fieramilanocity. Here, you transfer to the purple line 5 and travel to the stop San Siro Stadio in five minutes. From here, it is 350 metres to the football stadium.

The tram is a good option as well. Tram 16 rides through the centre and also has a stop west of Piazza Duomo. The tram travels to its final destination San Siro Stadio in half an hour.

San Siro Stadium Tour

The renowned San Siro stadium is filled with historic moments no one will ever forget. Still, the stadium will be a thing of the past in a few years’ time. Wrecking balls will tear it down after the Winter Olympics of 2026, when it will make room for a new stadium.

It goes without saying that you will want to take the opportunity to view the stadium on the inside during your visit to the Milanese derby. The San Siro Museo & Tour gives you this chance. Daily, you can take a look inside all rooms while shown around by a guide. You will visit the dressing rooms of Inter Milan as well as AC Milan who have their own dressing rooms at the stadium, after all. And of course you will walk through the player tunnel to the field, where the VIP stand will offer you an amazing view.

You will also visit the San Siro Museum. There you will find all information about the history of the stadium as well as the two clubs who played there. The museum is opened from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and until 6:00 p.m. from March to October. In addition, daily stadium tours are given from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The fee is €30 for adults and €23 for children up to 14 years old. Making a reservation online is definitely recommended.

Inter Milan’s logo

Inter Milan is currently using its 15th logo. Since they were founded in 1908, it has used several different designs. Most striking was the logo that graced the shirt from 1978 to 1988: a shield with a white snake on it.

The current logo, which was introduced in 2021, is in part a return to the first logo from 1908. That one consisted of a circle with the letters F, C, I and M (FC Internazionale Milano). This visual brand was visible in 9 of the 15 logos. For the first time in history, the letters F and C were omitted in 2021. According to club management, Inter Milan is more than just a football club. It is a brand which can be promoted and publicised beyond football too. The centre of the circle now also shows the letters I and M. In addition to being short for ‘Inter Milano’, the letters also represent ‘I am’ (I am Inter).
