Playing "Bocce" in Ferrara

This initiative proved to be so successful amongst students last semester that we decided to make it a regular event. Students are introduced to the game of BOCCE, first with a video introduction that illustrates different playing styles in Europe and the States, different types of throws, and how the game has developed and spread through Italy until today.


Our host and teacher was a young man, Andrea, who is in fact a promising champion in the field.

After the video, an aperitivo followed by lunch, it was time to start playing. Andrea taught everyone some of the basic throws, bocciata and raffa, and then we had a competition with commemorative medals for everyone and cups for the male and female winners.
