F.C. Turris 1944 was founded in 1944 and refounded in 2004. In the past, the club played many seasons in Serie C.[2]

Serie D 2010–11[edit]

In the 2010–11 season, Turris were the losing finalists of Coppa Italia Serie D. Since the winner, Perugia, were promoted to Lega Pro Seconda Divisione as the division winner, Turris qualified for the semi-finals of the national promotion playoffs. Turris defeated SandonàJesolo in the semifinals but lost 3–1 on penalties, after a scoreless game, to Rimini in the final and remained in Serie D.

The transfer to Nola, Neapolis' relocation, and refoundation[edit]

In the summer of 2012, the club's membership of Serie D was transferred to Real Hyria Nola in the city of Nola.[3] Until the end of the 2013–14 season, the main football club of the city was F.C. Torre Neapolis 1944, as President Mario Moxedano relocated the former F.C. Neapolis Mugnano to the city from Mugnano di Napoli.[4] In the summer of 2014, Moxedano moved Mugnano di Napoli again, refounding F.C. Neapolis. Turris was refounded as a relocation of FC Miano (Eccellenza league) in the same year, and then renamed Associazione Polisportiva Turris Calcio A.S.D.. They won the Eccellenza the year after and returned to Serie D.

From 2017 and return to professional football[edit]

In 2017, Turris was acquired by Antonio Colantonio, who promised to supporters that he would take the team back to professional football within three years.

In 2018, the club was renamed ASD Turris Calcio.

In 2019–20 , Turris won promotion to Serie C, returning to professional football for the first time since Serie C2 2000-2001 and to the third level of Italian football for the first time since the Serie C1 1997-1998 season.

For the 2021-22 season, the club has been renamed SS Turris Calcio.
