Borgo Pignano, estate in Tuscany - Ferie Messum

16 - 17 - 18 GIUGNO 2017

The traditional Ferie Messum, a fertility medieval festival which dates back to 1255, takes place every third weekend of June in San Gimignano. 

The town takes a step back in time offering a typical medieval and fun atmosphere, recalling the traditional competition against the four contrade (neighborhood), in which they hoped to obtain abundant harvest through singing, dancing and playing medieval games in honor of fertility, like the "Giostra dei Bastioni" where the knights competed against each other armed with staffs.
