Gioco dell’Oca

Clockwork Gallery - Gioco dell'Oca Where: Mirano, Italy

When: November

We’ve all played Snakes and Ladders, but not like this. There’s no table top and no dice. The players (six local neighbourhood teams) literally run around a life size board trying to scale the ladders (various obstacles) and avoid the snakes (Geese – yes, Geese).

There is an excuse however. This game is in fact a very old tradition dating back to the 16th century. They must have been bonkers too!!
