The stadium in which the game took place is approximately four hours away by car from where Udinese are based in Friuli, and despite the match taking place on a Monday night in a fixture that usually attracts around 60 fans, he was shocked to be the only one in attendance.
"I went there thinking I would find five or six other people," the Udinese fan told BBC.
"I went into the stadium while they [Udinese] were warming up. I shouted and said 'hi' to the team.
"When I went in the local fans booed me, I felt a bit offended.
"But in the end they clapped and invited me for coffee and a meal, and the club managers gave me a shirt. They wished me a merry Christmas."
Mr Brovedani later admitted that he was on a business trip close to the ground which allowed him to watch the game.
He added: "I like the stadium there, it is very similar to English stadiums. I always take my flag and scarf around they are always in the car with me."
