Men playing "Morra": each contestant throws up a hand with some fingers out-stretched and calls a guess as to the total number of fingers shown. Known in the U.S. as "Choosies" it is often used to make a decision. Based on a print by Bartolomeo Pinelli (1781-1835), who provided the figures for Luigi Rossini's "Veduta di Roma".
