Following news that the German Bundesliga is set to resume in May, the Serie A is also gearing up for a potential restart in the summer.
Italian government have officially announced they are easing some of the lockdown measures, meaning that individual athletes will be allowed to train from May 4 with football clubs resuming group sessions May 18.
Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said: "From May 4 onwards, professional athletes and those of national interest will be able to train while following social distancing rules behind closed doors.
"If we do not respect social distancing, the curve will climb again, so will the number of deaths, and we will have irreversible damage to our economy. If you love this country, then respect social distancing."
If all goes according to plan, Serie A clashes could return on June 8 with the aim of finishing the season by mid-July but the games will be played behind closed doors.
The Italian top flight has been suspended since March 9 with 12 Matchdays left to play in the 2019/20 campaign.
