The exhibition represents an exciting journey into the history of the Joust through the historical clothes that have been used over the decades. The costumes of the first editions, those of Vittorio Nino Novarese in 1956 and those currently in use of the Casa d’Arte Peruzzi (1992) come to life between lights, sounds, videos and images of the past, transporting visitors back in time.
In the central room the Golden Lances, one per decade, show the evolution of what is gergalmente called the “jug” along with the posters of the Giostra del Saracino, the first, 1932, made by Luigi Serboli, that of 1934 designed by Novarese, that of 2000 that celebrates the one hundred editions of the Giostra and that by the Council of the Giostra realized on the occasion of the 90 years of the event.
