A Giostra to Remember

The town of Sulmona in Abruzzo is one of my favorite places in all of Italy.  Last summer, my family and I attended the annual Giostra Cavalleresca — a Palio-like festival and horse race that dates back to the Renaissance.   The wonderful travel website Abruzzo Up N’ Down just published a piece I wrote about this one-of-a-kind cultural experience — http://blog.abruzzoupndown.com/2013/02/medievalgiostrainsulmona.html
