The Italian Embassy in Bosnia and Herzegovina, ahead of the upcoming Italian Republic Day celebrations, in cooperation with the City of Sarajevo and the Municipality of Stari Grad, invited “Gli sbandieratori di Arezzo” (flag-throwers of Arezzo) to perform.

The event took place on 22 May in the square before the Vijećnica (Sarajevo City Hall), while the procession started from the Markale marketplace. The flag-throwers of Arezzo are an ancient organisation, dating back to the medieval era of the Tuscan city; they became an independent association in 1960. They are appreciated and known throughout the world because of their elegance, style and respect for tradition and offer performances that integrate athletic, choreographic, rhythmic and musical elements.

The event allowed the spectators to admire the spectacular performances of the Arezzo artists and savour some Italian medieval tradition.
