A mediaeval re-enactment which takes place in the beautiful area of the Baluardo della Fortezza (Viale IV Novembre) where the ancient Castle Tedaldo used to stand.

There will be a Medieval camp with daily life scenes, duels, archery and crossbow tournaments, the merchants' street, and a tavern where it will be possible to taste local specialities.

Flag-waving games, musicians, fire-eaters, ladies and knights lead the visitors through the evocative atmosphere of the Middle Ages.
The most important event is the “Giostra del Monaco” where the knights fight for the title of Paladin.
