On 6 May 1956 Fiorentina celebrated the club's first league title with five games to spare. It remains the joint 'fastest' Scudetto triumph in history, level with Torino in 1947/48, Inter in 2006/07 and Juventus in 2018/19.

Julinho scored the goal that clinched the title as the Viola's 1-1 draw with Triestina ensured they maintained an 11-point lead over AC Milan. Fulvio Bernardini's side ended the season 12 points clear of the Rossoneri – a record in the two-point era.
