What follows is a selection of thousands shots during the last Calcio Storico matches.

Calcio fiorentino (also known as calcio storico "historic football") is an early form of football that originated in 16th-century Italy. Once widely played, the sport is thought to have originated in the Piazza Santa Croce in Florence.

Here 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. The game may have started as a revival of the Roman sport of harpastum.

The costumes of the historical revocation
As a portraitist I've always focalized on the expressions of people and during the matches of Calcio Storico you can catch lots of emotions but the one most dominant is fear. (Andrea Bigiarini)
