I relive the Middle Ages in San Gimignano on 14-15-16 th June 2019

The third weekend of June each year, the Knights of St. Fina evoke the traditional "Holiday Messium", established with statutory sections entitled "De Ferriis Ponendis" of 1255 (II, 29) and the 1314 (II,11).

This medieval festival, which was celebrated by the entire population as recurrence priority crops, was a source of fun with songs, dances, games, e combattimenti tra campioni a cavallo armati di bastone (carousel sticks). One of the elements of "Harvest Holidays" (first organized in October 1994) sarà il grande corteo, in which colors, objects, and numerous characters symbolically express the relationship between earth and fertility. The ritual of the blessing of the horses of the four districts, the carousel of sticks, the game of tug of war, the medieval market, adhere as much as possible the Medieval Philology.
