Valtopina
29 June-03 July 2016 

Every year in Valtopina, ancient trades and flavours are brought back to life over the days celebrating the Palio of San Bernardino.


The medieval historic exhibition is coming back from the 29th of June until the 3rd of July: the workshops, the Taverns' perfumes, the small market, the splendid historical parade and the competitions among the three castles, Pasano, Poggio and Serra, to conquer the desired standard. Slingshot, tug of war, "Hit the rooster" and relay are the the games with whom the Castles face to win the Palio, involving the entire village for five days of celebration and competitions. 

This event is a trip back in time thanks to the costumes, recipes, music and dance which bring medieval traditions back to life.
