About Giostra del Saracino

 

Giostra del Saracino

The early September holds a great relevance for the natives of Tuscan town of Arezzo, Italy. During this time, they indulge themselves in a traditional festivity namely Giostra del Saracino or Joust of Sarace, which is a true representation of Middle Age society much appreciated events.

The festival of Giostra del Saracino is an ancient celebration that takes place each year in Arezzo, Italy. It includes a joust, which is a very old knight's tournament having its roots in the Middle Ages. The event is a vibrant procession in which countless people from the four main districts of Arezzo's Tuscan town participate, joined by talented musicians and Arezzo's popular "Sbandieratori" standard wavers, where the actual tournament will happen. Further, it is celebrated on the same day of San Donato, Arezzos patron saint and begins in the morning with a procession joined by countless people attired in 14th century traditional dress, followed by the benedictions of the bishop performing Duomo.

Once the march enters Piazza Grande, the actual jousting or competition starts. The sbandieratori flag wavers are displayed and then the tournament is vivified by persistent turns of events, tested by the brilliance and fortune of eight participants, two from each district. The tournament comes to an end with an award ceremony, where Golden Lance trophy created by an Aretine craftsman will be given to that quarter whose horsemen score maximum points on the shield of the Saracen.
