Volterra undergoes a medieval transformation and transports itself back to 1398. Reconstructions of medieval life with peasant farmers, livestock, monks and other tradesmen provide a colourful spectacle. Live de monstrations of military skills, handicrafts and ancient trades transform the archeological park into a realistic depiction of village life in the Middle Ages, whilst the town centre is alive with rich and spectacular medieval pageantry and music. On this day the town reverts back to its former currency, the “Grosso”, and the “Grosso Volterrano” will be the only currency accepted during “the Day of the 1398 festival”. Crafts, food and wine may only be purchased with this currency which will be available at “ Ye Olde Exchange Office”.
