If you are in Tuscany on the 4th and 5th of September don't miss the Giostra del saracino in Arezzo.
Two times a year it is perpetuating this tradition, started in the Middle Age.
It is a very suggestive tournament that took place in the Piazza Grande (famous for the movie "La Vita è bella" of Roberto Benigni), with horses, Knights, medieval music and customs.
On the 4th took place the "Cena Propiziatoria", a dinner to propritiate the tournament, organized on the streets of everyone of the four quarters where everybody can partecipate (nice meal and unlimited drinks for 30 euro).
On the 5th in the afternoon took place the tournament, then follows the celebration on the seat of the winning team.
The city is awsome, the atmosphere is joyful and the people from Arezzo feel this tournament.
Don't miss it!
