Partita a Scacchi at Maròstica Main Square
Like a re-enactment of some Alice in Wonderland scene the Main Square at Marostice will be filled with costumed people playing real life chess. And we mean real life; the pieces will be actual people armed and dressed in traditional heraldry.
This historic match dates back more than 600 years and a love rivalry between two noblemen. They decided to settle their differences by duel but were persuaded to play a game of chess instead by the Lord. Just over an hour away from Venice this little town on the edge of the mountains is a lovely spot top spend a day catching up on history.
