An authentic community event, just like in the Middle Ages, when during feasts the local lord, the entire population of the town was involved. The event since 1996 does not celebrate a specific event but pays homage to an illustrious past that between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance saw this ancient castellum (small Roman fort) flourish and become a small town, strategically important at first for the Republic of Pisa and later for the Grand Duchy of Tuscany.

A festival where the ludic and recreational aspects become the focus around which to imagine and reinvent, but always using reliable and philologically credible sources. An atmosphere that allows the participants to identify themselves with the epic/chivalrous tradition that is such an important part of our collective imagination, with ladies, knights, notables, Lords, soldiers, musicians, jugglers, craftsmen, inn keepers that take part in a theatrical setting where every minute detail has been meticulously researched. All the clothes, for instance, are woven on looms and hand sewn by the expert hands of local seamstresses and copied from ancient models found in paintings, codexes or written documents, that help to make the costumes historically accurate.
