What happens when MMA mixes with soccer and rugby?
This is what happens.
Meet traditional Calcio.
Calcio Storico is one of the most strange and old games ever played since the Renaissance. It has always been played in Santa Croce Square in Florence and known as Giuoco del Calcio Fiorentino (Florentine Football).
It is considered as a mix between football and rugby – with a good dose of bare-knuckle boxing, and started in 1530 but faded put during the 18th century. In the 20th century it was associated with the celebrations of Saint John’s Day, Florence’s Patron Saint Day.
