Aiming at the cockerel

Castello di Poggio

Our area of Valtopina, which is called Castello di Poggio, is the over-all winner of the medieval games – see my Facebook page.

There will be yellow flags flying everywhere.

The area is named after an uninhabited castle just outside the town.

Here a Poggio contestant is about to score in ‘Aiming at the cockerel’, in which a weighted plastic ball is thrown over a distance of 12 metres at a metal cockerel.

I was very impressed by his relaxed confidence and apparent complete lack of nerves.
