The Cavalcata of Assunta is the oldest reenactement in Italy. Plays historical parade, religious celebrations and tournaments related to the patronal feast of the Virgin Mary Assumption since 1182. In the late Middle Ages (1436) became a means to reaffirm the Fermo supremacy on the territory. This is testified in a miniated page of the Messale De Firmonibus to which the reenactment is inspired and reproduced in the gonfalon. Now as then, the winner of the horse race conquest the Palio dell’Assunta. In earlier days, the rivalry between the 10 Contrade of Fermo is expressed in cooking of the Hostarie and in the historical games challenge. Before the Palio of 15 August, there is the Tratta dei Bàrberi, the horse drawing for the Contrade assignment
