When is Mercantia

Mercantia is a medieval festival held every year in Certaldo in the second week of July, better defined as an international festival of street theater.

This extraordinary medieval festival that happens every year during the second week of July, catapults Certaldo in a unique atmosphere of other times, full of magic and mystery. Its a collection of old crafts, jugglers, street theatre performers, artists from around the world that enchant us with their flair. During Mercantia we all return as children, seeing a new beauty that until the day before seemed like something every day. All people are happier, more sociable and friendship hangs in the air along with the notes of ancient music and the bright colours of the party. Everything changes and is transformed and the small medieval village of Certaldo returns to its origin of its story, as if he had never left.
