Medieval Sarzana

Jul 24, 09:02 AM by James Martin

Sarzana is one of my favorite towns in Liguria. It offers a lively and interesting medieval core without car traffic, two fantastic restored castles, many restaurants (we haven’t been to a bad or boring one yet) and a lively festival season.

What you see in the video is typical of medieval festivals. There are the sbandieratori, in this case a young man who can handle 5 flags flawlessly, costumed folks in mock battle (and interesting one runs through this video) jesters and jugglers, and even, in this case, a belly dancer.

Now, see the video since I’ve spoiled it for you.
