has never lacked occasions to live great moments of collectivity
. Every town, however small has always had since
Medieval times, at least one “festa”, either
religious (celebration for the Patron Saint) or other kinds:
civil or military to organise with the inhabitants impressive
celebrations, which attract people even from nearby towns.
Some spectacles, like festivals, fairs, games and tournaments,
have come down to us preserving their authentic significance; and it is
a real pleasure to participate in them as a spectator.
