Atalanta Bergamasca Calcio, commonly known simply as Atalanta, is an Italian football club based in the city of Bergamo, Lombardy. It is one of the several provincial football clubs and arguably one of the most successful of them too. They currently feature in the Italian Serie A.

Atalanta was founded in 1907 and actually was established after a division arose in the 1904-established FC Bergamo.

The name “Atalanta” is taken from the female athlete of Greek mythology but the Italian football federation, the FIGC, did not recognize it until 1914. Atalanta joined the Italian league in 1929 and reached the Italian Serie A for the first time in its history in 1937.

After being relegated from the Serie A in its first season, Atalanta returned to the Italian top flight in 1940 and played in the Serie A until 1959, finishing in 5th, its highest ever position, in 1948.

Atalanta submerged into depression in 1981 when it was dumped into the Italian Serie C1 but the club returned to the Serie B next season and then to the Serie A in 1985. However after that, Atalanta were irregular in the Serie A. They however reached the semi-final of the European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1988 and in 1991 reached the UEFA Cup quarter-finals.

Atalanta boast of possessing one of the best youth academies in Italy and over the years have produced the likes of Roberto Donadoni, Alessio Tacchinardi, Domenico Morfeo, Giampaolo Pazzini, Riccardo Montolivo, Ivan Pelizzoli, and Samuele Dalla Bona.

Atalanta play their home matches at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri in Bergamo. The stadium can hold a crowd of 26,638.

Atalanta bear the nickname the Nerazzurri, a nickname shared with Italian powerhouse Inter Milan. The club is also known as La Dea (the Goddess) and Orobici (Orobis).
