Unfortunately/fortunately we are going to miss this. Calcio Storico is a traditional no holds barred version of football and soccer played in Florence. The arena is set up in the piazza in front of the church of Santa Croce. To build the arena they fill the piazza with tons of sand and dirt. Bleachers are set up around.
Players can use any means to engage their opponents. At every game players are carted away on stretchers.
