The Giostra del Saracino (Saracen Joust) and other events in Arezzo

Arezzo is a vibrant cultural city throughout the year and offers a rich calendar of cultural pageants and events.

The Arezzo Antiques Fair, the oldest and most famous in Italy, is held on the first Sunday of every month and is an occasion not to be missed, even for the non-collector: finely crafted antique and modern items, vintage jewels and rare objects for enthusiasts and anyone enticed by the fascination of the past.

The Giostra del Saracino, a medieval jousting tournament, is contested by the various districts of the city in an exciting challenge till the last blow of the lance. Music, costume parades and flag throwing add colour to the proceedings. The tournament, held twice yearly in June and September, always provides a thrilling spectacle.

There are also the countless events held at the Arezzo Business Centre, a modern exhibition hub comprising six pavilions, which attracts thousands of visitors each year.

The most important event is the Gold Fair in April, which for years has brought renown and prestige to Arezzo, known as "the city of gold" due to the presence of many gold-working companies and the refinement of the jewellery produced in this area.

The International Dog Show held in February involves dog breeds from all over the world, one of the largest and most interesting shows for dog lovers.

And "Italiarreda" in October is a furniture and interior design fair featuring the most important trade names in contemporary design.
