Sampdoria's fiercest rival is inner-city Genoa, with which they share Derby della Lanterna. The rivalry intensified in recent years, particularly since 2011 when more than 30 thousand Genoa fans staged a mock funeral through the streets of Genoa, carrying a blue-draped coffin, which symbolized Sampdoria. The Doriani were relegated that season, but they returned to the Serie A after only one year. Apart from Genoa, they are having a rivalry with Milan and Inter. The rivalry with clubs from the city of Milano started during their fight for the title in 1990/91 season, when Sampdoria emerged victorious and won their only Serie A title.
Sampdoria were founded in 1946, after a merger of two clubs, Sampierdarenese and Andrea Doria. However, the roots of these two clubs can be traced back to the 1890s, and Sampdoria fans are often stating that the club is much older because of that fact. The golden age of the club was during the late 1980s and early 1990s. They won their only Serie A title, Super Cup and four Italian Cups during that period. European success came with European Cup Winners Cup in 1990 as well, but the brightest moment in club history came in 1992, when they qualified for the European Cup final. They were playing against mighty Barcelona and lost by 1:0, after extra-time. Gianluca Vialli is regarded as the biggest club legend. He was the top scorer in Serie A when Sampdoria won Scudetto, and he was the top goalscorer in the club for six consecutive years. After his departure to Juventus, Sampdoria's power started to fade. After returning to Serie A, Sampdoria enjoyed seven stable years. In the last three seasons they even finished in the top ten on the table, and they are hoping that in the years to come they can return to the very top of Italian club football.
