ART MOMENT

#ARTMOMENT: Every year, a particular type of race is held in #Assisi which draws on in a medieval tradition. At that time the entire city was surrounded by fortified walls and had eight entrances secured by large wooden doors. Every night at a certain time guards would close the doors to secure the city. The current race, "la Marcia delle 8 Porte," is an homage to this tradition where the runners mark each entryway before reaching the finish line. The winner receives a prize and music is played at the small festival. #ARTMOMENT: Ogni anno, ad Assisi, viene tenuta una particolare gara che deriva da una tradizione medievale. Infatti, un tempo, la città era fortificata da mura possenti e da otto entrate, sbarrate da portoni di legno. Ogni sera, al coprifuoco, le guardie chiudevano le otto porte per proteggere il paese. Oggi questa tradizione è ricordata con una piccola gara che ha come mete le porte della città. Il vincitore riceve un premio e si festeggia con della musica.
