Lazio have been fined 50,000 euros (£38,250) after their match against league leaders Napoli on Wednesday was transiently halted following racist chants.
The two times Italian champions also have to close three sections of the Stadio Olimpico ground for their next two Serie A home games.
The match was stopped for three minutes in the second half after a section fans aimed racist chants at Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.
After the match, Lazio manager Stefano Pioli said: “I would not have stopped the match. It was chanting from the minority, but I don’t think they were racist. We also have players of colour and they are treated well.”
The Rome club has faced similar punishments in the past.
