X° International Folklore Festival  "Bracciano's Castle"

(23 - 27 August 2018) Bracciano - Rome

   The history of Bracciano is all determined by the magnificent Castle whose sizes dominate all over the settlement. Due to its structural and architectonic characteristics and the excellent state of conservation it is considered one of the most important castles of Italy. It is located on the southern shore of Lake Bracciano. It was built in the 15th century, and combines the functions of a military defence structure and a civilian residence of the feudal lords of the period, the Orsini and Borgia, both papal families. As one of the largest and best-maintained castles in Italy, it also houses a museum and a centre of cultural events.
