Archers of Castelvecchio

This group takes its name from an ancient fortified settlement, "Castrum Vetum", place steeped in history, located in the territory of San Gimignano surrounded by a beautiful woodland setting that comes alive today thanks to the Association Gruppo Storico di Castelvecchio which aims to enhance it through educational and cultural initiatives.
The bows used by archers, both in training and during the demonstrations, are arcs "Historic" consisting of a single piece of wood, arrows are wooden poles with metal tips and natural colored pens: everything is hand-built by the archers themselves.
During the events evoke the archers training and competitions that were organized in every village to keep men trained to war and hunting.
