The residents of Assisi spend a year preparing for this festival. During this four day period, medieval costumes and historical re-enactments, parades and special events are held throughout the town square.

The two ancient medieval wards, the “Parte di Sopra” and the “Parte di Sotto”, engage in a spectacular challenge which takes the form of theatre shows, concerts, songs and choruses, dances, processions, archery, crossbow and flag-waving displays. The districts compete in a singing contest among the spectacular floral decorations, flags, torches and candles.
