Giornate Medioevali

Program

In the main squares and streets of the historic center, artists and shows, reenactors and merchants, ancient crafts and historical processions await you.
From music to theater, from parades to large fixed shows. A kaleidoscope of entertainment offers: jesters, late medieval music, camp life, fighting, archery, histriones and charlatans, acrobats and jugglers, storytellers and flag-wavers. A stage as big as the city ready to be filled with artists and reenactors who with their vitality will bring the past back to life, coloring the present with emotion and amazement.
And every evening the magical Cava dei Balestrieri awaits to provide you with ever-changing entertainment: from the performances of jesters, fire-breathers and musicians on Thursdays to the choreography of skilled waders on Friday, culminating at the weekend in two evenings of great evocative power: on Saturday the celebrations for the 40th anniversary of the foundation of the musicians and Flag Wavers Group of the San Marino Crossbowmen Federation and on Sunday the rediscovered Palio del Tricorniolo, with the presence of the cities of Lucca, Massa Marittima, Pisa, San Sepolcro and Volterra.
And every evening starting at 11.00 pm, grand closing in Campo Bruno Reffi with music and dances at the Taverna del Cavaliere.
