Medieval and Renaissance Festival
November 19, 2022 @ 10:00 am - November 20, 2022 @ 5:30 pmFree
Artes Fest is a two-day event dedicated to the discovery of the main medieval and Renaissance arts.
The spirit of the Festival is to promote an interactive and laboratory approach, with the aim of involving you in a fascinating and mysterious, but sometimes misrepresented era.
Come and visit us to discover the secrets of 14th and 15th century cuisine, challenge yourself with the art of fencing and dances of the period, try to guess which idioms have a medieval etymology and let yourself be intrigued by anecdotes and curiosities that our guests will tell you about!
