The Giallorossi have been lighting up Serie A for over 50 consecutive seasons and few teams can lay claim to attracting such a galaxy of stars. South American greats like Cafu, Aldair and Gabriel Batistuta have all shone in the eternal city along with Mr Roma himself, Francesco Totti.
The title win in 2000-01 remains the highpoint of the modern era for the team from the Stadio Olimpico. Under the guidance of legendary manager Fabio Capello, Roma fought off Juventus to secure their third championship and their first in 17 years. Despite a number of second-placed finishes a fourth Scudetto has so far eluded the Roman giants.
That is not to say the seasons since have been without incident. As well as being a force in Italy, Roma are Champions League veterans and the knockout stages of the competition are not complete unless those famous red and yellow shirts are involved.
In Francisco Totti they have a player universally worshipped by the fans. A local boy, Totti has been the club's finest player for many years and one of the most gifted Italians of his generation. He sums up perfectly the loyalty and pride Roma fans expect from their heroes. Totti has never played for another club and is both the most capped Roma player of all time and the highest scorer.
Many years before Totti, another local lad helped the club to their first Scudetto. Against the backdrop of Italy's involvement in World War Two, Amedeo Amadei scored 18 goals to seal top spot in the 1941-42 season. A Roma player since he made his debut at the age of just 15, Amadei spent over a decade with his local club, scoring over 100 goals.
In the following years Roma failed to live up to that championship-winning season and ten years later they were relegated from Serie A for the only time in their history.
It took them just one season to regain their top flight status and the 1960s brought a recovery in the Roman club's fortunes. Three Coppa Italia wins and a Fairs Cup victory over Birmingham in 1961 gave the fans something to cheer about but it was not until the 1980s that they claimed their second Scudetto.
Under Swedish boss Nils Liedholm Roma pipped Juventus to the title in 1983. Liedholm's team was brimming with attacking talent, not least in the form of Italian international winger Bruno Conti and Brazilian legend Falcão.
