Just like for other card games, the origins of Scopa are also unknown, although its evolution can be traced back to certain undeniable milestones. It is thought to be a very old game, descending directly from the Spanish “Escoba”, the rules of which are very similar to those of the Scopa played today in Italy. However, another theory again has Spanish links. I claims that Scopa comes from two Iberian games called “Primiera” and “Scarabucion”, which were very popular in the 1400s. On the other hand, according to Italian tradition, this fascinating game was played in the 1400s in the port of Naples by fishermen and pirates who used it to compete for the loot they got from robbing aristocrats’ homes or attacking merchant ships.
Scopa is now one of the most well-known and popular traditional games.
