A new season has come, and here I am really happy to invite all of you to participate to the 10th " FUROR ET FERRUM" the International Tournament of Historical Duel to be held in Pavone, near Turin, in Italy on Sunday 2rd of June 2012.
Who has already come from every part of Europe (Norway, Russia, Czech Republic, Poland, Slowakia, Hungary, United Kingdom, France, Switzerland, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Germany) during the last years, (and it's going to happily come back this year...) already knows well which qualified, nice and special treatment we give to all of our guests under the beautiful towers of our castle, so here I am to invite you, again or for the first time, in Italy to live this tournament with all of us, exchanging experiences and having fun in an outstanding and passionate atmosphere full of history, skills, talent and friendship. (...and surrounded by good music, almost 1000 re-enactors, more than 30.000 visitors from all Italy and enjoying good food and wine...).

As every year we offer a " served" green camp in the middle of the historical town center, very close to the Tournament Arena, to set your historical tents and sleeping bag (and near the camp there's a big gym for who 's " eventually chilled" ;-)) and for everyone to take hot showers)
