Giochi de le Porte - The Games of the Gates - Giochi de le Porte - The Games of the Gates
The games kick off on Friday following the exchange of gifts between the gates, and performances by flag-throwers and musicians whilst the tavernas welcome guests, serving local dishes and specialities.
Saturday is the day of the spectacular historical procession: a thousand participants in prestigious handmade costumes will parade across the town, taking it back to the Middle Ages with witchcraft, music, art and trades of past times.
Sunday is dedicated to the highly anticipated games between the gates: San Benedetto, San Donato, San Facondino and San Martino face each other in four different competitions which culminate in the corsa del somaro (a bareback donkey race).
