Calcio Storico, with the coronavirus draw behind closed doors: the 2020 semi-finals
This morning, Easter day, as per tradition, the draw of the Calcio Storico took place, although, of course, given the coronavirus emergency, the ceremony did not take place before the outbreak of the wagon (canceled) in Piazza Duomo but in the Salone of the Cinquecento.
The draw has decided the two semi-finals, which will face first the Greens of San Giovanni against the Azzurri of Santa Croce and, in the second race, the Reds of Santa Maria Novella against the Whites of Santo Spirito.
It is not known yet when it will be possible to play. One thing is certain, not in June as per tradition. Maybe in September.
The draw was attended by the commissioner for popular traditions Andrea Vannucci, the president of the historic Florentine football Michele Pierguidi, the director of the historical procession of the Florentine Republic Filippo Giovannelli and the four captains of the historic districts of Florence.
Florence is there and its tradition remains. The hope – Vannucci underlined – is to be able to return to normal soon and to be able to live, if conditions permit, a tournament with great public participation “.”
