- A bit of an oddball question. Does anyone know where in Florence one would have gone to
view a football (soccer, calcio) match? I know that the wonderful calcio storico Fiorentino is
held yearly in Piazza Santa Croce, but was that a spot for games back then?
Also, on a completely unrelated note: can anyone point me to some images of the French
court around 1500? Machiavelli went there in 1501 as an envoy and I'm looking to draw an
interior of the throne room...
