Festa di San Giorgio in Montemerano

The reenactment in one of the most beautiful villages in Italy

The Maremma, land of pageants celebrated during the week of April 25 April, the Festa di San Giorgio in the medieval setting of Montemarano, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. The event, which looks like a party in honor of the Patron Saint, is an example of how the Tuscany is attentive to its own history and tradition.

Actors dressed in medieval clothes parade through the narrow streets of Montemerano, among the shops of a colorful village and embellished by the charm of its origins, its ancient crafts and its stone houses. Three-day Festival will open with the reenactment of the battle between the Knight San Giorgio and the Dragon, legend painted by Paolo Uccello in 1456 and today visible at the National Gallery in London.

A party atmosphere made unique by the launch of the balloon, a special balloon firelit white inside and stands under the open sky, with music, shows, parades and marches. On the third day, on the final day, the Dragon wagon will March to the main square of the country celebrating the Carousel: a points race among the neighborhoods that involves throwing balls into his mouth, a time to gather and close one most important historical events of the Maremma.
