AS Roma begins US Summer Tour at Fenway Park

The sequel to AS Roma’s “sports miracle” — as one member of the Italian media christened the club’s 2013 season — began Tuesday in the unlikeliest of locations: on an American soccer field, more than 4,000 miles from Rome, at a university whose mascot is a giant elephant.

Roma — in Boston for its US Summer Tour, which begins when the Giallorossi play Liverpool at Fenway Park on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. — trained at Tufts University on Tuesday morning, months after infusing renewed vigor into the club by finishing second in Serie A and qualifying for the UEFA Champions League.
