San Gemini
30 September-15 October 2017 

An old document of 1374 tells about San Gemini's celebrations in honor of its patron saint: drawing inspiration from that public celebration the city will celebrate again St. Gemini, from September 30 to October 15 with the "Arms Carousel"

For fifteen days the historical center will dress in the colors of the two districts, Rocca and Piazza, ready to face the challenge to gain Silver's Palio.

Streets, squares and noble palaces will relive medieval atmospheres with theatrical performances, re-enactments, performances of flag weavers, warriors, jugglers and acrobats, awaiting the final challenge, preceded by the historical parade.

Six knights (three for each district) will set foot on the "Playfield" to play the equestrian tournament: each galloping knight must thread a ring with a javelin and throw it against a shield-shaped target, divided in sectors with different scores.

During the event it will be possible to taste the best dishes of the ancient local food and wine tradition, thanks to the peculiar taverns opening their doors to city's visitors.
