First known chess opening, according to the Gottingen manuscript (1490).  The opening is 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5, and was given its name by Lolli.  The opening name is derived from Italian, meaning quiet game, in contrast to gambit openings.  Salvio used the term Giuoco Piano for all games that were not gambits.

    Hi People...

    I was studying this opening...and I practiced against "The Little ChessPatner" and I won Laughing

    It was something like that...

    I was too excited with the victory and I don't remember exactly each move. But It was like this one.

    Though this opening is strong, it's strength is enhanced by by white then continuing with Evans Gambit.

    This game is not real, maybe a mockery, I have games with more quality than it, I want to share some of my games with very interestting positions and combinations.

    @dpenaranda        it is somewhat easy to defeat Little ChessPartner. If you offer the computer material, it will grab it without much 'thought'

    Isn't this the same thing as the Italian Game?

    Cars31,

    it is the same thing as Italian Game. Please also look up,in any opening database, the "fried liver attack" which is an offshoot of this opening. This is also a powerful attack,although at times ,comes to nought.

    One of the games which should be shown in this article is Steinitz v/s Bardelben

    (Italian Game Greco Gambit)

    I know next to nothing about theory... I thought the Giuoco Piano was characterized by this:

    Of course, that's just what I remember from an old FICS lecture. Not sure exactly how far book is, or even if that's just a variation and not a main line.
