Life in the Fortress City. Historical re-enactment

Town Center

Terra del Sole (FC)

Re-enactment of daily life at the Fortress City of Terra del Sole in the 1580s-1630s.

During three days, you can live in a citadel with no cars, no motorcycles, no noise produced by modern devices, but only by ancient tools and the shooting of harquebuses and cannons, exactly how it was back at that time, when the village started to live and be inhabited.

People in costumes will occupy the areas once used by harquebusiers, pikemen and artillerymen, recreating the military defence apparatus for which Terra del Sole had been founded by Cosimo I de' Medici, but also scenes of daily life.

An exhibition of ancient weapons and food tasting are organized at the ‘Bettola’.

Date: the event will be held from Apr 25, 2014 to Apr 27, 2014 - it will also be held on Apr 21, 2017, Apr 22, 2017, Apr 23, 2017
