Kirsten Schlewitz

Italian Soccer Editor

Kirsten Schlewitz is the calcio specialist for SB Nation Soccer, devoting plenty of time to Serie A and attempting to keep up-to-date on Serie B. An avid Napoli supporter, she never professes to be a neutral, but hey, you didn't want dry, bare-bones reporting anyway, did you? When not writing about calcio, Kirsten contributes to SBN's Aston Villa site, 7500toHolte.com. She can also be found ranting on Twitter (often in multiple languages!), sipping beer, and studying international law. Sometimes all at the same time.
