Medieval Festivals – Brisighella
Historical commemoration to revive the charm of the Middle Ages.
In early June, in the fascinating Manfrediana Fortress, which watch over from the top the ancient village of Brisighella (Ravenna), it takes place a long weekend of historical commemoration to revive the charm of the Middle Age.
A colorful crowd of aristocrats and knights, artisans and musicians, soldiers and farmers, bring back the old professions, the traditional customs, and the battle between the knights.
After the sunset, the light of the torch will suggestively illuminate the weapons and the armors, the terracotta and the trunks. The rolling of the drums will be more impetuous, the duels will transform into burning battles, and the animations will be on stage, to finish up with big concerts and dances.
Don’t miss the Medieval Tavern with dishes and flavors cooked according to ancient recipes with daily menus.
On Saturday at dusk, there’s the remembrance of an assault on the fortress, which ends on Sunday in the late afternoon.
The medieval festivals are also an occasion to visit Brisighella, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. In the historical center, the Old Street of the village is a covered and elevated street that dates back to the XII century. It’s also known as “Via degli Asini” (Streets of Donkeys) for being a shelter for the animals offered by the inhabitants.
