IL MERCATO DELLE GAITE A BEVAGNA: 20 - 30 GIUGNO 2019


Mercato delle Gaite has now reached its thirtieth edition and, as always, the city will immerse itself in its medieval past and exactly, in the period between 1250 and 1350. The purpose of the event is, in fact, to rebuild in detail, the daily life of the city as it should have been at that time.

For ten days, from 20th to 30th June, Bevagna takes a dip in this remote past: the ancient shops of medieval crafts resume their activities and the streets are crowded with old-fashioned people eating, working, playing just like theirs ancestors.

The city today, as in that historical period, is divided into four districts, called gaite and during the event, enter into competition by repeating what were the typical jobs of each neighborhood.

The spirit takes the form of participation in four competitions: market competition, trade competition, gastronomic competition, archery competition.
With a complex system of points, assigned by professors and historians in the various fields and called upon to judge the historical relevance of the reconstructions, the winner of the Palio della Vittoria is awarded on the last day of the event. The strong spirit of belonging to one's gaita makes the competitions very heartfelt and engaging and leads each district to perfect itself from year to year in proposing typical crafts.

The event will open with the Medieval Banquet “Nomen Omen. Coena in refectorio fratrum"on 8th June 2019 at 8.30 pm in the magnificent Piazza Silvestri of Bevagna.
The great dinner will be accompanied by music, lyrics, scenes, games and live flames, in addition to the aromas and flavors of the five "inputs" (recipes taken from 14th century sources), made with the typical products of the territory, thanks to the project of the RDP and to partner companies. On the scene the objects and the furnishings that have made a fine show in the scenes of the recent television drama "Il Nome della Rosa", taken from the famous text by Umberto Eco.
We look forward to seeing you in Bevagna on June 8th at 8.30pm. Take part and there will be no surprises for you!
