The Saracen Joust September 2018


A colorful Piazza Grande houses the Giostra del Saracino, game of medieval origins, known and appreciated by the whole world. Porta Crucifera, Porta del Foro, Porta Sant'Andrea and Porta Santo Spirito are the names of the four quarters that compete for the victory: riding the horse, the jockey tries to hit the center of the target with the lance, supported by an armored revolving automaton called 'King of the Indies' or 'Buratto'. The neighbourhood that obtains the highest score wins the Giostra and the Rector receives the gold spear, symbol of victory. The evocative and colorful procession rises up to reach the Cathedral where the Te Deum, a hymn of thanksgiving, is sung. … And let the games begin!
