Fiorentina

Fiorentina have only been outside Serie A for four years since 1931 but only have two Scudetti to their name. The club's biggest crisis came in 2002 when they were relegated and then went bankrupt sending them down to Serie C2. They were forced to start again with a new name Florentia Viola but they battled their way back within two years and even bought back their old name. These days Fiorentina are back amongst the elite and are Champions League chasers.
