The first edition of the Medieval Festival of Vicopisano dates back to 1996. In recent years the festival has grown in importance, especially regarding the ideal blend of the beautiful historic city of Vicopisano and effective reconstruction of the medieval implemented by the participants.
Historical groups, medieval settlements, itinerant musicians and theatrical theme are strongly decreased in an architectural context of rare beauty, making it even more impressive and intense participation in this Festival which, despite a deliberate playful approach, tries to make the viewer empathize in the Middle Ages.
Clearly you can not miss the catering aspect, so the streets of the village and the most beautiful places are located in the taverns where our clowns are waiting for a light meal (much in line with the period!), While outside the the festival circuit is a large area equipped for those who want a full meal.
Medieval Dinner – On the top of the hill held a dinner during which they are served by caring “maids”, dishes cooked according to criteria and medieval recipes, and consumed according to the “etiquette” of the ‘200, ie not using forks and following a nostro.Quest order flow than the ‘year in the square in front of the Praetorian Palace will be 30 seats at the table prepared to draw each of the two evenings. So those interested should book early to the secretariat of the festival.
The cost of the dinner is 45 euros per person.
But beyond all, what really affects the mood of this festival is magical and unreal and the strong feeling of being constantly suspended between the present and a glorious past, a feeling that this year the organizers want to share with all their guests.
