Children will then be able to demonstrate their courage by daring to penetrate the dreary and steaming worm of the Checca witch, learn the fundamentals of the timeless technique of archery with historical arches, and experience with their own hands some lost arts and professions, for example at Schola of the Young Amanuensis, where they can learn the rudiments of medieval calligraphy, and at the clay processing workshop, where the small visitors of the event will be able to manually confide with the realization of divas and clay artifacts. Also in Piazza Primo Maggio, the young guests will be able to attend the performances of the puppet theater in the afternoon.

At the numerous gourmet taverns, it is possible to taste, like in the medieval taverns and taverns, the dishes and drinks used by the ancient inhabitants of Brozzi, some of which are nowadays forgotten or desuete.
As a consolidated tradition, visitors will be asked to sympathize with the funny fiction of the pseudo-local currency, the mythical Brozzino, which visitors will be able to obtain at the exchange rate of 1 Euro = 1 Brozzino at the banks of the Exchange Exchange Office Coin placed in two different places in the area affected by the event, to use it at the stalls of the medieval market and in dexterity and skill games.
