Rosetti and Italian referees - an affront to meritocracy in UEFA Refereeing

It should be said openly - the appointments that the Italian referees are getting at a UEFA level are becoming a bit ridiculous. There cannot be much doubt now - this is a systematic plan to work specifically to the advancement of match officials from Italy (nothing against them personally, of course!). The Italianisation of UEFA Refereeing that has taken place under Roberto Rosetti must stop if Nyon wants to credibly claim that they are running an operation that at least aims to work like a meritocracy and does not seriously demotivate referees from other nations.

Roberto Rosetti is Italian

But how did we get here in the first place? This article aims to answer some of those questions.
