Radda in Chianti is getting ready for the return of “Ferruccio”. Preparations for a new editition of “Radda Rinascimentale nel segno del Ferruccio” (Saturday and Sunday, June 24 and 25) are in progress.

Every year, the commemoration fills the Chianti town with acrobats, falconers, jugglers, fire-eaters, cavaliers, townspeople, antique trades, music, Renaissance dances and many shows for the joy of young and old. The awaited for game of “Palla in Botte” will be played.

In the  Castello di Radda, A.D. 1527, Mayor, Francesco di Niccolò Ferrucci, called “Ferruccio”, decided to celebrate the arrival of his successor with pomp and games.

Upon the request of the ‘“Gonfaloniere della Podesteria del Chianti”, he initiated a game of “Palla in Botte” between the two town gates.

For two days, we will return to live the suggestive atmosphere of the early 1500’s and in the castle you will be able to enjoy typical dishes and to meet “il Ferruccio”.
