Assisi, May 1-4, 2024

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

Bevagna, June 19-30, 2024

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.

Guided tour with wine tasting | The Carapace of Arnaldo Pomodoro

12Mar

GUIDED TOUR OF THE CASTELBUONO ESTATE WITH WINE TASTING:

THE CARAPACE OF ARNALDO TOMODORO

Il Carapace was born from the Lunelli family’s dream of seeing a cellar built that was a treasure chest for wine. From the long-standing friendship with Arnaldo Pomodoro and from the previous collaboration – which had led the Master to create “Centenarium”, the sculpture that celebrates the century of history of the Ferrari Cellars – the idea arose to propose to him, whose sculptures stand out in symbolic places around the world, to realize the cellar.

The idea is that of a shape reminiscent of the turtle, a symbol of stability and longevity which, with its carapace, represents the union between earth and sky “.

THE WORK

The result is an absolutely unique work, the first sculpture in the world in which it is possible to live and work, a place where art and nature, sculpture and wine dialogue, emphasizing the exceptional nature of both the container and the content. Entering the “Carapace” means entering a sculpture by Pomodoro, as his artistic alphabet immediately perceives, immediately recognizable in the internal vault. A winery that gives emotions, as happened to its author, Arnaldo Pomodoro. He told it himself: “For the first time in my life I had the thrill of being able to walk, talk and drink inside one of my works”.

The carapace is the first sculpture in the world in which you live and work, it is a treasure trove of great wines, Sagrantino and Rosso di Montefalco, the soul of the truest Umbria.

IN THE CARAPACE OF ARNALDO TOMATO NATURE, WINE AND ART DIALOGUE AMONG THEM

The “Carapace” offers itself to the eye as a large dome covered with copper, engraved with cracks that recall the furrows of the earth that embraces it. A sculptural element in the shape of a red dart that sticks into the ground emphasizes the work in the landscape.

The duration of the visit is approximately one hour; During the guided tour, Arnaldo Pomodoro’s Carapace project, the history of the Lunelli family, the winemaking practices and information on the aging of our wines will be illustrated. Wine tasting will follow.
