OCTOBER TREVANO

1-23 OCTOBER 2022

From 4 to 27 October in Trevi, a month full of initiatives, starting with the Palio dei Terzieri.
Throughout the month of October, Trevi hosts the many events of October Trevano. It begins on 4 October with the opening of the Taverns and the Convivium dei Terzieri and continues for the remaining thirty days with historical re-enactments, film reviews, concerts, markets and theatrical performances.

On the eve of the Palio, a sumptuous procession of over five hundred figures in medieval costume winds through the city streets lit by torches and decorated with flags, banners and banners, in a suggestive medieval setting. The draw is thrilling for all the Trevano people, with the hope that luck will bring each Terziere the desired starting ranking. The evening will be framed by medieval music, dances and performances that start the awaited race and will end with the winning of the Palio and the assignment of the title of “Antepost” to the Consul of the winning Terziere.
On Sunday 6 October the XXXIX edition of the Palio dei Terzieri will be staged, recalling the tenacity and ardor with which the young Trevani people re-emerged their city from the destruction that occurred in 1214 by the Spoleto inhabitants by the will of Duke Theopoldo. Twenty young “Color-bearers” compete for each Terziere who alternate, in several relay races, in the arduous and exciting race, during which one pulls and the others push the cart with all their might. There is no respite between one change and another: after the passing of the baton, you have to keep running to reach the square within two minutes of the bell of the bell being touched. The Terziere who took less time and committed fewer irregularities wins.
Among the many initiatives on the calendar, do not miss the Black Celery Exhibition in Trevi, scheduled for 19 and 20 October.

GIOSTRA DELLA QUINTANA | FROM 17 TO 18 SEPTEMBER 2022

01May

LA GIOSTRA DELLA QUINTANA

17-18 SEPTEMBER 2022

In September the Giostra della Quintana takes place in Foligno, a chivalrous tournament in costume in which the 10 districts of Foligno compete

Traditionally it is held twice a year: in June the Challenge, in September the revenge

The 2 weeks preceding the Joust, the city comes alive with the opening of 10 taverns in the city’s 10 districts, where you can taste 17th century recipes prepared with local products.

On Friday the city of Foligno traditionally becomes the setting for a great historical parade in which hundreds of costumed figures participate.

Saturday is competition day.

The competition consists in making 3 laps on horseback of the ancient stadium of Foligno (Campo de li Giochi) in the shortest possible time, inserting three times with the spear a ring hanging from a statue of the god Mars (the so-called “quintanone”) without receiving penalty. The diameter of the ring decreases progressively in the three turns (6 cm, 5.5 cm, 5 cm). The rider who finishes the course without penalty and in the shortest time wins.

The first testimony of the Quintana di Foligno dates back to 1613. The current version dates back to 1946.

The name Quintana derives from the 5th street of the Roman camp, the one where soldiers were trained to fight with spears.

CALENDIMAGGIO 2022

Assisi, April 4-7, 2022

The Calendimaggio of Assisi (sometimes also transcribed Kalendimaggio) is a festival that is celebrated every first Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday after May 1st of every year, to greet the arrival of spring. The two Parts into which the city is divided, the Nobilissima Parte de Sopra and the Magnifica Parte de Sotto, compete for the conquest of the palio, through the development of processions in medieval costumes (about 13th century – mid 15th century), scenes recitations of re-enactment of medieval life in the alleys of the city and musical performances: the winning Party is decided by a jury, made up of internationally renowned experts, that is, a historian, a musicologist and a personality from the world of entertainment.

During the days of Calendimaggio, through the alleys of Assisi, you can relive the atmosphere of the typical medieval festival, with songs, music and jousting; the festival has ancient origins, dating back to the ancient tradition of the Umbrian people to greet the arrival of spring.

In these days, the people of Assisi wear traditional medieval clothes and follow a series of initiatives, including the suggestive Palio del Calendimaggio.

LE GAITE | BEVAGNA16-26 JUNE 2022

LE GAITE

Bevagna, June 15-26, 2022

The Mercato delle Gaite is inspired by the ancient division of Bevagna (PG) into four districts called Gaite. The administrative organization of the city in medieval times was based on it. The purpose of the event is to reconstruct, with the greatest historical relevance and wealth of details, the daily life of the inhabitants of the village in the period between 1250 and 1350.

For ten days, at the end of June, Bevagna takes a dip in this remote past: the ancient shops of medieval crafts reopen their doors and resume their activities; the streets are populated with bevanati who in period clothes live the daily life of their ancestors by eating, working, playing just like them. Today as then, the city is divided into four Gaite, but today each rivals the others in an attempt to give a historically faithful interpretation of the role it played in the Middle Ages. The spirit of competition is the basis of the animated event and takes the form of participation in 4 competitions: Competition of Professions, Gastronomic Competition, Market Competition and Archery Competition. With a complex system of points, assigned by scholars and experts in various fields and called to judge the historical relevance of the reconstructions, the winner is declared on the last day of the event and receives the Palio della Vittoria as a gift. The strong spirit of belonging to one’s own Gaita makes the competitions very interesting and stimulates a continuous improvement of the Gaite proposals in the various sectors, with a clear advantage of the general quality of the Festival. The Mercato delle Gaite is now counted among the most important historical events in Umbria and is part of the Regional Association of Historical Events.

FESTIVAL DEI DUE MONDI | 24 GIUGNO-10 LUGLIO 2022

14Mar

FESTIVAL DEI 2 MONDI 2022

(24 GIUGNO-10 LUGLIO 2022)

Spoleto Festival, o Festival dei due mondi com’è ancora conosciuto in tutto il mondo, è il più grande e importante evento internazionale di musica, arte, teatro, cinema, cultura e spettacolo in genere che si svolge annualmente in Umbria.

La manifestazione per molti anni è rimasta nel suo genere l’unica in Italia, per l’originalità degli spettacoli proposti.

Giunto alla 65a edizione, al centro del programma del Festival saranno donne che hanno dato nuovi impulsi all’espressione artistica.

Per il secondo anno alla direzione artistica, Monique Veaute segue la sua vocazione multidisciplinare e internazionale e tesse una tela di relazioni trasversali alle singole arti che si condensano intorno a tre linee programmatiche: la musica dei due Mondi, la voce delle donne e i nuovi modi di raccontare la musica.

La programmazione musicale guarda alla relazione tra le due sponde dell’oceano, legame di cui da sempre Gian Carlo Menotti è stato promotore, e lo fa con una proposta artistica che abbraccia molteplici linguaggi grazie anche alla presenza delle due orchestre in residenza, la Budapest Festival Orchestra, accompagnata dal direttore principale Iván Fischer e l’Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia con Antonio Pappano.

Al centro del cartellone musicale c’è poi sicuramente il soprano e direttrice d’orchestra Barbara Hannigan, a Spoleto per ben tre concerti.
