Description

From 14th to 24th June 2018, the Mercato delle Gaite will take place in the city center of the Medieval town of Bevagna.

It is certainly one of the most important historical events of Umbria, where the daily life of the inhabitants of the town in the Middle Ages is reconstructed with a wealth of details and the maximum attention to historical loyalty.

As always, the ten days of events and reenactments will be anticipated by the Medieval Banquet, scheduled for Saturday 9th June 2018. It is a precious and unique experience: for one night, the main square of Bevagna turns into an open-air hall of a medieval castle just for the celebration.

2018 Mercato delle Gaite of Bevagna 2018

From 14th to 24th June 2018, the medieval crafts shops that are the pride of the event will re-open in Bevagna. On the days of the manifestation, the city streets will be populated with figures in period clothes, who will live the daily life of their ancestors eating, working and playing just like them.

The city will be divided into 4 Gaite, or districts, according to the ancient medieval administrative division. The Gaite are in a competition to attempt to give an interpretation as much as possible pertaining to the role that each of them played in the past, and the spirit of competition takes the form of four races: market shop competition, competition of the crafts, gastronomic competition, sports competition by archery.
