“Medieval August” Festival comes back from the Past in Ventimiglia, Liguria

The “Medieval August” Festival was born in 1974 in Ventimiglia (Region of Liguria). Every year, between July and August, history turns into the protagonist of Ventimiglia and such an old and lovely town comes back to its mysterious atmosphere of the past.
