The Night of Isabella – Atmospheres and mysteries of Cerreto in 1500 – Cerreto Guidi (FI) 30 June – 1 July 2018

  The historic center will be back in time in July 1576, in a festive atmosphere for the arrival of the beloved Isabella, the preferred daughter of Cosimo, to reach her husband in the Medici Villa. Among the walls of the sixteenth-century village you will meet nobles and commoners, ancient knights and scenes of everyday life, historical games, ancient crafts, music and renaissance dances, jesters and storytellers, falconers, feats of swords and crossbows, games of fire and flags. You will enter the evocative atmosphere of the Villa Medicea, from the Parish Church of San Leonardo, from the Oratory of the Holy Trinity welcomed by historical figures who will guide you. You can stop and taste typical dishes in the old inns and taverns. For two days the atmosphere will warm up in one succession of ancient shows of all kids until the news of the mysterious death of Isabella, which took place in Cerreto Guidi on July 16, 1576; will hear the truth whisper “between stories and popular legends” handed down for centuries, until the final show in the magnificent setting of the Ponti Medicei to celebrate the life of the “star” of Casa Medici.
