Medieval Festival (2018)
Suspended between history and legend, the deeds of Ghino di Tacco, "brigand gentleman" who twice occupied the Radicofani Castle becoming lord and from up there lording the surrounding area and in particular on the underlying Francigena, have always met considerable interest also in the most important authors of our literature, who were his contemporaries, like Dante, or immediate posterity, like Giovanni Boccaccio.
This album collects images of some of the most significant moments of this "medieval festival". The episode of the return of the abbot of Cluny was recalled with the representation of the clash between the troops of the Papal State, who came to Radicofani to order the return of the abbot, with Ghino di Tacco, by Compagnia D'Arme "Santaccio" di Chiusi and the perugine "Compagnia del Grifoncello".
