Italy (Games People Play) by Miles Harvey

Games People Play! explores through dramatic photographs and riveting text the games, sports, activities, and cultures of the world. Various aspects of a culture are expressed in its games and sports -- from its people, lifestyles, language, celebrations, customs, traditions, rituals, and warfare -- even its politics and religion. And many countries histories can be traced to games played centuries ago, several of which are still played today.<P>From Ancient Rome to modern Italy, sports and games reflect the Italian culture and soul. Some ancient games (such as chariot races) have long disappeared, but the Roman game of harpastum is widely recognized as the basis for modern soccer, the worlds most popular sport. Many other modern sports -- auto racing, bicycle racing, basketball, skiing -- have developed a uniquely passionate following in Italy.
