Exhibition of the Junior ‘Nobile Contrada Trinità Flag Throwers’, the ‘Rione Rocca Junior Swordsmen’ and the Rione San Giorgio Junior Fire Artists and Jugglers.
The Spadaccini [Swordsmen] Historical Group was born in 1974 in the Rocca District of Soriano nel Cimino; it comprises a standard bearer, musicians, drums, three-piston clarions, Emilia-style bagpipes and, of course, the swordsmen. Over the years it has performed in over 150 Italian centres and many prestigious European festivals, distinguishing itself by the originality of its spectacle, a unique phenomenon at national and international levels.
Today, you can admire a show specially created for the junior swordsmen and musicians, the apprentices of the group charged with keeping alive these historic traditions for the benefit of future generations. The apprentice swordsmen will revisit the duels and group exercises in time to music performed by their older comrades and will end their performance by tributing the audience with the traditional human tower, the distinctive hallmark act of the Spadaccini Historical Group for over forty- years.
The traditional flag-thrower group ‘Giovani Sbandieratori della Nobile Contrada Trinità’ was founded in 1995. By the following year, it had already a significant contingent of apprentice youngsters and they performed for the first time at the 28th chestnut festival. Various members of the Flag-Thrower Group have carried forward the “apprentice” tradition: Gianluca Anselmi (Giampy), Aquilino Mancinelli and Marco Ferruzzi.
Under the guidance of the Grand Flag Master of the Italian League of Flag-Throwers, Nicola Borghesi since 2010, the Apprentice Flag-Throwers participated in the 4th Under-18 National Flag Parade held in Soriano in 2015. They also participated in the 2016 5th Under-18 National Parade held in Chianciano Terme, in both events, winning trophies and placements in the various Flag-Throwing and Musician categories. In 2017, again in Chianciano Terme, the group won the 6th Under-18 National Parade Best Italian Company title by having taken part in 13 category sections out of 15 with the award of 8 gold medals, 2 silver and 2 bronze.
The Contrada San Giorgio junior Jugglers and Fire Artists were established a few years ago under the main group who have been accompanying the performances of the musician with fire spectacles, acrobatics and juggling. Indeed, children can be introduced to these street arts from a very early age, these skills were an important part of the Medieval jesting performing arts. As they grow older, the youngsters are introduced to the acts with fire and the more complicated props that have always characterised the street shows.
