The 2012 edition of the Giostra del Saracino

This year Sarteano celebrated 800th anniversary of Saint Francis’s stop by Sarteano (1212) and the 30th anniversary of the new edition of the Giostra del Saracino (the tradition was interrupted in 1962 and started again in 1982) with a special night Joust on 1st September 2012. The 15th August race and the special edition were both won by the San Lorenzo’s contrada (red and white).

Here are the galleries of the two events. A special thank to Mauro Sini for sharing his beautiful photos with us.
