Marostica (Veneto)

Marostica is a town in the province of Vicenza, Veneto, northern Italy. It is mostly famous for its living chess event and for the local cherry variety. In the second week end of September in the even-numbered year, a game of chess using live pieces is played. After the First World War, members of the local chess club began playing chess in the main square and decided to play a game of chess using people as the gamepieces.
