Serie A1
<< 1996 1997 1998 >>

The 1997 Serie A1 regular season was dominated by Caffe Danesi Nettuno, who went 46-8 and finished eight games ahead of second-placed Cariparma. But it was Parma who took home the championship as they beat Nettuno in the Italian Series to capture their ninth scudetto. The two beaten semi finalists, GB Ricambi Modena and Caserta, were both making their first playoff appearances. Verona finished an awful 0-54 and were unsurprisingly relegated down to Serie A2.
