Flagflyers performance: a medieval tradition

The best historical groups of flagflyers and music players of the area present, within the beautiful frame of Piazza Signorelli, an amazing show of lights and colors with the performance of flagflyers and fire-eaters executed to the rhythm of drums and trumpets, which recall the important medieval tradition of the town.

The Archidado Joust, officially created in 1397 to celebrate the wedding of the Lord of Cortona and a noble woman from Siena, is a historical event in which the different quarters of the town compete in a crossbow tournament. Costume parades, typical medieval dinners, flagflyers and fire-eaters performances, falconry and magic shows are organized every year to relive the medieval splendor of Cortona.
