The #Ancient #Italian #Sport of #CalcioFiorentino A.K.A “giuoco del calcio fiorentino” #AncientFootball #NoCriticsJustSports

Calcio Fiorentino is an early form of football/soccer and rugby that originated in 16th-century Italy. Once widely played, the sport is thought to have started in the Piazza Santa Croce in Florence. There it became known as the giuoco del calcio fiorentino (“Florentine kick game”) or simply calcio; which is now also the name for association football in the Italian language.
