The Coppa Italia (Italian for Italy Cup) is an Italian football annual
cup competition. Its first edition was held in 1922 and was won by Vado. The second tournament was scheduled for the
1926-27 season but was cancelled during the round of 16. The third edition was not held until 1935-36 when it started
being scheduled annually. The events of World War II interrupted the tournament after the 1942-43 season, and it did
not resume again until 1958 where it has been played annually continuously since.
Juventus is the competition's most successful club with 13 wins, followed by Roma with 9. Juventus has contested the
most finals with 18, followed by Roma with 17 finals. The holder can wear a "tricolore" cockade (Italian: coccarda),
akin to the roundels that appear on military aircraft and automatically qualifies for the UEFA Europa League group
stage the following next season.
