The card game in the film is called Scopa. Scopa is an Italian noun meaning "broom" since taking a scopa means "to sweep" all the cards from the table. Scopa is an Italian card game and one of the two major national card games in Italy. It is also popular in Brazil, brought in by Italian immigrants, mostly in the Scopa di Quindici variation. Scopa is also played in countries like Libya and Somalia. It is played with a standard Italian 40-card deck, mostly between two players or four in two partnerships, but it can also be played by 3, 5, or 6 players.
