On Sunday, the highlight of the festival is the re-enactment of the wedding between Francesco Sforza and Bianca Maria Visconti celebrated in 1441. The parade is featuring over 150 historic characters wearing Renaissance costumes; flag throwers, drums players, ladies and knights, archers and jesters walk through the streets of Cremona, from Largo Bocacinno to Piazza del Comune, where the reenactment of the wedding of Francesco Sforza and Bianca Maria Visconti takes place.
This 9 days’ celebration is attracting every year over 250.000 visitors.More Information >>>
