In the video above, Theodorou and Cirkunov watch Calcio Storico (aka Calcio Fiorentino), which looks like a mix of team MMA and rugby football. The game dates back to 16th century Italy, but today’s version of the sport started in the 1930s. Nowadays only a couple of matches are played each year and it’s more a spectacle than it is a serious sporting event.
The footage in this videos comes from Italian videographer Pietro Pecco. Check out Pecco’s YouTube channel for shots across Italy, Europe, and beyond. Mostly recently he was in Turkey shooting foretesses, museum pieces, and ruins.
