Format changes

In 1928 the fascists allowed for 1929 the start of the Serie A they stopped in 1926, not before to readmit SS Lazio and SC Napoli to allow a wider representation of Southern Italy, and AS Livorno and La Dominante to avoid odd groups.

More, during the summer the FIGC decided another expansion of the championship to allow a wider representation of the territories annexed after WWI, to save the remaining two clubs of the closing season, and to include AC Fiorentina and three other minor clubs, effectively making the new tournament a mixed Serie A-Serie B championship that should split into the two leagues.
