Como, a medieval event: Palio of Baradello 2019

You don’t need to be a history buff to be enchanted by the medieval manifestation of Como, the so-called “Palio del Baradello“, a historical celebration that has taken place every year in the city since 1981.

90694_1097839_POZ_6051_8808955_mediumHave you noticed that Como is a city rich in history? Ancient medieval walls, palaces, remains of fortifications and Roman cities. It will be easy to live again the glorious past through this amazing setting!

Get ready, we’re going to start our time machine to let you jump back into the past, around 1159, when Como turned to Frederick I, Holy Roman Emperor, also known as Frederick Barbarossa, to ask him to put an end to the tyranny of Milan. This alliance became an important moment that needed to be celebrated with festivities, games, tournaments and banquets. The same that relives today!
The symbol of the Palio is Baradello Castle, the “stone sentinel” that stands on the hills of Spina Verde, erected for the defense of Como in 1156, with the permission of Barbarossa.

• Friday, September 7 at 8:30pm, the  Medieval Banquet, with dishes prepared according to the eighteenth century recipes;
