The ancient splendors and glorious deeds that left their mark on history will come back to life at the Palios and festivals in costume that, all over Emilia Romagna, will pop up in historical town centers, ancient castles or seaside towns with tournaments and challenges, past habits and crafts, dancing, parades and ceremonies. July and August.
