MEN AT ARMS TOURNAMENT - 4/5 OTTOBRE SAN LEO FORTRESS

The project “TORNEOINARMATURA” (Tournament in Armour) was set up to provide the audience with a historically accurate Tournament within a historical setting so that visitors can go deep into a real historical context. Since tournaments take place all over Italy, our project aims at re-enacting not only the tournament but also its ritual aspect and the artistic component which fills the display of strength and power of the Italian Renaissance.

ONLY chosen MEN-AT-ARMS will be asked to participate. In addition to MUSEUM reproductions of armours dating back to 1450-1490, participants will also have to meet various parameters, as far as clothes and psychophysical training are concerned.

The Tournament reproduces a series of fights on foot in a field delimited by a fence, which has been made by studying and applying late-fifteenth-century regulations.

Look at the fights, look at the power of the armours shining under the sun, but not only: organizers and participants will make a variety of SETS to represent the lordships presented. Coats of arms, painted shields, crests and standards will liven up the event and its rituals. This tournament is therefore made up of several rituals which, given their historical background, make it different from others not only thanks to the historical accuracy, but also for the events connected which involve visitors too.
