When History gets alive, Live it!
On the 14th, 15th and 16th of June, Perugia awaits you in the engaging climate of a celebrating city to relive together the historical period between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, while the five historical districts will compete for the 2019 Palio in exciting sporting challenges: Javelin Toss on Friday, Move to the Rook on Saturday and Drape Race on Sunday. The evocative Saturday night happening, recalling the Captain of fortune Braccio Fortebracci entering Perugia, will prepare the great event which will take place on Sunday afternoon with the awaited historical parade and the announcement of the winner.
Within the three days, taverns and restaurants will welcome you along alleys and squares of the town center, magnificent natural theatre, with traditional dishes of Umbrian cuisine while little ones will play at the “Middle Ages of children“, among stories, knightly tournaments, workshops and demonstrations.
