The two remaining areas will be available for “free bout” and for private lessons.
In the afternoon of April the 30th researchers Michele Vello and Fabrizio Tonin will conduct a conference where they will present the results of new researches on the presence in the area surrounding the town of Belluno – between the XVI and XVII centuries – of different forges dedicated to the production of high quality swords and pole weapons. The request of these weapons was so high that allowed local smiths to achieve, at that time, fame and notoriety throughout Europe. In conjunction with the conference it will be presented a book, available in both Italian and English, which collects the results of these research.
