Three Days of War
Historical Florentine Football is an extremely violent sport that originated with the birth of Florence itself. Father to both soccer and rugby, it is played by calcianti: men, mostly from Florence, who do it for honor, glory, and passion. Nobody gets a penny. Four teams participate in the three-day tournament: the Greens of San Giovanni, the Reds of Santa Maria Novella, the Whites of Santo Spirito, and the Blues of Santa Croce.
