Throughout the Valdarno area, during the month of September, the Feste del Perdono are celebrated, popular and traditional events that are also important moments of aggregation for local communities. The Festa del Perdono of Montevarchi is traditionally held the first week of September, and this year it takes place from Thursday 2 to Wednesday 8 September.

Central moment of Feste del Perdono, the historical re-enactment and the Gioco del Pozzo (Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 September), with the squares of the historic center that are dressed up and with decorations of medieval life, events, arts and crafts, the camp and the taverns.
The event takes us back to the Middle Ages, recalling the arrival in the city of Count Guerra with the Relic of the Holy Milk of the Madonna as a gift to the Prior of the Insigne Collegiata. The days are punctuated by traditional rituals that accompany visitors until late afternoon and evening when, in the central square of the city, the challenges between the teams of the districts with the Gioco del Pozzo take place, which compete for the right to draw priority. to the “city well”.
Other initiatives are planned in Piazza della Repubblica, in Piazza dello Sferisterio, at the Cloister of Cennano and at the Ginestra Amphitheater.
