“The informative format – explains the association promoting I Cavalieri de li Terre Tarentine – tells the story that led to the clash between the Byzantines, masters of the lands of Southern Italy in the Middle Ages, and the Norman conquerors who led to the transformations of those territories from the point of view historical and social “. Leading into the maze of history will be reenactors of the highest philological level and professional actors. All this in strongly identifying places that are at the same time the context of the events narrated. «The final production – the organizers underline – foresees the creation of an informative and promotional audiovisual product of the events of the past, thanks to the involvement of academics and what our association has achieved. Re-evocative skills resulting from studies and collaborations with museums and universities, as well as linked to the participation and organization of about 400 events in 16 years of activity ».
