A traditional Spring Festival in Assisi
May 8, 2014 @ 8:00 am - May 11, 2014 @ 5:00 pm
A traditional Spring Festival in the historical town of Assisi
‘Calendimaggio’ is a spectacular evocation of Medieval and Renaissance life.
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.
We will guide you in this unique experience, with time at the Festival and time in the other treasures of town and area.
