Merler, a board game of ancient origins, has existed since the first civilizations. At Tocatì, Fondazione Discanto will set up a ludic-didactic course to discover the history, curiosity and rules of Merler and will organize single competitions for adults and children. As a frame to all this we’ll find the courtyard of Capitolo Canonicale, adjacent to Biblioteca Capitolare where we can still find sculpted in stone numerous chessboards that remind us of Merler. Players will also get the chance to participate to Biblioteca Capitolare‘s events and guided tours at a discounted price.
This game is also accessible to people with reduced mobility
