Calcio Storico

The Calcio Fiorentino is an early form of football, originally played only by the aristocracy. Currently, a Calcio Fiorentino tournament is held every year, on the third week of June at the La Santa Croce square in Florence, Italy. Four teams play against each other to the finals that take place every year on 24 June, the day of San Giovanni, the patron saint of Florence. This historic game had not been played for 200 years until the tradition was revived in the 1930’s.
