Festa dell'Ospitalità (HOSPITALITY FESTIVAL)

All the colours of Hospitality

This festival evokes a 13th Century tradition, when Bertinoro’s noble families raised a pillar in the town’s central square, each setting a ring into it. When a stranger tied his horse to the pillar he was immediately invited to be the guest of the corresponding family.

The rite is repeated on the first Sunday in September each year, as the centrepiece of the three-day festival when the whole town gathers in the delightful medieval centre.

The Festival consists of a packed schedule of events and concludes with a magnificent firework show.
