    Item title reads - The origin of football! "Calcio" XVth century game, from which our game is derived, revived in all its medieval splendour. Florence, Italy.

    L/S as buglers and drummers walk along in medieval costume followed by men carrying flags. L/S as men in breastplates walk along carrying staffs, a cow walks behind them. M/S as the ball is thrown into the middle and the game begins, the players are all wearing breeches and ornate jackets. L/S of the game from above
