Saturday, May 24th, Medieval Banquet organized by Terziere Porta Fiorentina.

Calendar

Organized by the Porta Fiorentina Terziere the tasty event revives guests a glimpse of medieval life: that of conviviality, hospitality and celebration that you could live in a Tuscan noble family of the Lower Middle Ages.

The Banquet, now in its twelfth edition, is held every 4th Saturday of May in the May Castiglionese, enhanced by the prestigious award by the Region of Tuscany as a “Historical Event” recorded in the regional officer since 2013.

The evocation of the Medieval Banquet takes place within the cloister of the church of San Francesco, where guests can admire the beauty of the place welcomed by lovely ladies and kind sirs in period costume. The ladies are offered a rose and the diners are accompanied with assigned seats at the table while their feet are anticipated by rose petals sown on the path. A privilege to be present at the banquet as the cloister can not contain more than 150 seats.

Greeted by music and singing guests take place followed by the Sir and Dame hosts, announced by the trumpets and roll of drums.
But which foods were offered in the noble houses of the Middle Ages? They were foods that taste sweet and sour and spicy, typical of the Middle Ages.

At the banquet every year is a different menu and everything takes place in an atmosphere enlivened by jesters, flag Castiglione, acrobats, jugglers and fire eaters, creating an authentic medieval atmosphere.
The cost? Only € 35 for a leap into the past through the pleasures of the palate and a culture that remains in the roots of Castiglion Fiorentino. Not only it is worth it but it is better to book early to avoid not find the place. The 2014 edition of the medieval banquet will be held Saturday, May 24.
