AS Roma was founded in the summer of 1927 following the merger of three Rome-based sports clubs: Fortitudo-ProRoma, Football Club di Roma, and Alba-Audace.

The agreement was reached on the historic night of 7 June, 1927.

Italo Foschi was elected the club’s first president, having held several meetings in the previous months among the three clubs with the aim of bringing Rome sportsmen together to create a great team capable of beating the northern sides.

The new club took on Rome’s wolf symbol for its crest and colors of the city – yellow and red.
