The Sbandieratori Association and the Crossbowmen of the Società dei Balestrieri keep the ancient traditions of the city of Sansepolcro alive.

  • The Società dei Balestrieri was born during the Tuscan Renaissance. Every year they organize the Palio della Balestra, a crossbow shooting competition between Sansepolcro and Gubbio which goes back to the fifteenth century.
  • The Sbandieratori Association of Sansepolcro was the first flag throwing group in Italy and is the oldest to still be active today. It was founded in the 15th century and still today it delights the city of Sansepolcro during the Palio della Balestra Crossbow competition with its Flag Throwing Games. These performances have made them famous all over the world.
