3rd Palio delle Contrade di San Paolino. The crossbowmen of Lucca are ready to challenge each other again in a competition with "Verretta" shots to get the best result on the "corniolo", the target made of an elongated wooden barrel on which each shooter, in turn, shoots his own verretta, without removing the precedent shots. The winner is who gets closest to the center, and his contrada wins the Palio.

 

Based on an idea by Marco Brinzi, produced by the IfPrana company in collaboration with the Giglio theater, the Ape Teatrale festival is back. Like on a bee's flight the Ape-car lands with the theatre performances on the squares and districts of the historic center and the towns and hamlets near Lucca.

In the Ape Teatrale event Marco Brinzi and Caterina Simonelli present the "jokes" of two archetypal figures of the commedia dell'arte, Doctor Balanzone and Arlecchino, in the spaces of the city.
