Events in San Gemini
San Gemini Summer features a variety of events of which the most important is the San Gemini World Music Festival.
Giostra dell'Arme: a historical re-evocation that begins in the last weekend of September and ends the second Sunday of October . Local taverns serving specialities open and the town is decorated with the colours of the two ‘rioni’, or districts (red and blue for Rocca and white and green for Piazza). A number of Medieval-style events including the “offerta dei ceri”, the investiture of the knights and the historical parade. The event culminates in a joust where three knights from each ‘rione’ compete to run their lance through a 5-centimentre diameter ring, and then fix it at a gallop into a coat of arms. The winning ‘rione’ gets the silver "palio".
The San Gemini flag throwers perform during the event.
The Infiorata Sangeminese takes place on the Corpus Domini feast, in June. Competitors create intricate decorative patterns and figures on the street where the procession passes, using only flowers.
The Mascia Masin national piano competition takes place at the end of October and is open to young pianists. Divided into categories: A is for those born after 1990 through to F for those born after 1970. The Mascia Masin prize is awarded to pianists born after 1968. This competition has attracted a number of pianists from all over the world in recent editions.
