08 Jan Giostra dell’Arme – San Gemini
The Giostra dell’Arme represents another medieval re-enactment, which includes the contest between the knights from the two districts of San Gemini, Rione Piazza and Rione Rocca, for the conquest of the Palio. Each rider must get a ring with a javelin and throw it at a shield-shaped target, divided into sections with different scores. This year the re-enactment will take place from 29 September to 14 October, and the contest is just the conclusion of a multiplicity of other events, including theatrical performances, concerts and historical parades with flag-wavers and drums.
The local taverns offer local specialities which are not to be missed.
Come and greet the autumn by reliving the history and ancient traditions of the beautiful village of San Gemini; many activities await you, with an unforgettable view.
