Medieval August in Ventimiglia, 36th edition

Every year in July and August, history becomes the protagonist of Ventimiglia (Liguria Region) and the town is enriched by an atmosphere that never seems to be gone.

Ladies, knights, nobles: common people dressed in medieval costumes enliven the beautiful historical centre, which offers a perfect and charming setting for this event. Every year, the event has a different theme.

The event takes place in the evening with medieval dinners, performances by jugglers and fire eaters, medieval markets, guided tours for discovering the treasures of Ventimiglia and also many concerts.

One of the most popular exhibitions is the regatta (Disfida de li gozzi liguri), a very exiting race, but really tiring for the players who, after months of training, will compete in the Ligurian Sea.

In addition, visitors will have the chance to enjoy extraordinary performances by flag wavers.

Do not miss this medieval summer in Ventimiglia, discover Liguria Region and be involved in this medieval atmosphere. You will feel like you have stepped back in time and you will relive the emotions of your predecessors.

You still have time until 10th August 2012.
