Men play Morra in the foreground; fish vendor behind with others drinking and chatting. Morra is a traditional game very popular in Italy, particularly in the regions bordering the Mediterranean. The game consists of guessing the sum of the numbers that are shown by the players' fingers. Simultaneously the two players stretch their arms showing their fist or spreading a number of fingers of their choice, while shouting (as if to intimidate the opponent) a number from two to ten (the "punch" is equivalent to one and ten is also called proper "morra") generally in the local language , sometimes crippled with very colourful expressions that vary from region to region.
