foto The Saracen Joust (Giostra del Saracino)
The Saracen Joust (Giostra del Saracino), is Arezzo’s most characteristic and spectacular event. It is, in part, a re-enactment of history, with the numerous participants dressed in magnificent costumes. But it is also a competition between the quarters of the city whose representatives are recognized by their colours. Porta Crocifera is in red and green, Porta Sant’Andrea in white and green, Porta Santo Spirito in yellow and blue, and Porta del Foro in crimson and yellow.
