Medieval Days in Poggio Otricoli
Middle Ages, a time of wizards and spells. Moreover, so the present tense disappears and comes back to live this ancient world made of colorful characters, music, dancing and traveling shows
An uphill road leads to the quaint little village of Poggio di Otricoli. Crossing the entry threshold of the town becomes the proud "Castrum podiums Medii". Women wear long dresses and strange headgear, men, feature improbable tights shouldered bows and crossbows, and all visitors will look as if they were the last to come from another era. And in fact, the historical periods do not coincide. At Poggio Otricoli, during the last two weeks of July, the present time is completely erased. The inhabitants are immersed in a play, which seems to push the boundaries of farce, and itself becomes reality. It goes back a few centuries to revive the Middle Ages, whose spirit was imprisoned along the alleys and streets of the town, in the homes of stone, the defensive castle. The three-day medieval becomes an excellent opportunity to discover everything about this fascinating period in history. Crafts, foods. Hobbies, habits and customs. In the main square is set up a market with all kinds of handcrafted products that are hard to resist. The only condition is to purchase only with Rocco, the currency in use at that time. At this point, everything will be more realistic for the visitor, who will speak in natural triplets and toast with "wine et beer abundanzia."
