Rossi di Santa Maria Novella were Calcio Storico Fiorentino Champions in 2008 with a 9 ½ to 4 victory over Azzurri di Santa Croce in the Final. Calcio Storico Fiorentino (“Florentine Historical Football”) is a Medieval Football game, first organised in Renaissance Florence, Tuscany, Italy, that was first played by workers between breaks in work, and then organised matches beginning in 1530. It is played by four teams representing the four quarters of Florence during the main festival period in Florence each year.
