Calcio Fiorentino, also known as calico storico which means historic football, and giuoco del calcio fiorentino (Florentine kick game). It is an early form of football which was developed in 16th century Italy. The game was believed to be a revival of the Roman sport of harpastum.
In the modern times, there are three matches which are played every year in Piazza Santa Croce in Florence in the third week of June. There is a team from each quartiere of the city: Santa Croce or Azzurri, Santa Maria Novella or Rossi, Santo Spirito or Bianchi, and San Giovanni or Verdi. After playing each other, the final two teams will proceed to the finals.
