Between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance: The Italian reenactments

The OBSERVER

Beyond festivals (sagre) focused on food, in Italy during the summer, tourists and locals can enjoy other kind of festival, namely those devoted to reenacting the Middle Ages and Renaissance periods. In June or July, in Tuscany one can find this kind of celebration in many historical towns, such as San Gimignano, Colle di Val d'Elsa, or Monteriggioni. For instance, sometimes, participating requires one to exchange money from Euros into fiorini (florins) to pay for the food, activities, or merchandise on offer.
