Tobias Jones

The Not So Beautiful Game

Having moved to Italy 20 years ago, journalist Tobias Jones is an expert on the nation’s criminal underbelly and football culture. Bringing both interests together, Jones talks about the passion, pride and prejudice that exists within fanatic supporters in Ultra. This violent, criminal element is existent in many clubs in Italy, having thrived thanks to organised crime and far-right politics; Jones explores the disturbing power they wield today in discussion with Alan Taylor.
