The word birillo (pin) dates back to the XIV century, but the Calabrian term brigghja is proven to have existed
since 1426. Birillo Parato is one of the many throw games, like Carrara, that are part of the ancient folk
traditions widespread in almost every Italian region. It’s an individual game in which there are two pins, one
mobile which is thrown to knock over the other one, which is fixed: on top of the fixed pin a pile of coins is set,
one for each player in the game, which are won or lost depending on the throw’s result. In this edition of
Tocatì, the Calabrian ludic community of Fossato Ionico, Reggio Calabria, will play with us.
