Šišan is a rich source of historical facts and events; therefore, last year the idea of reviving the medieval everyday life was put forward. The idea emerged after Antonio Giudici had translated and edited the book Valeriana Montija where valuable sources about Šišan through history can be read about. Thus, among visitations, estates, feuds and descriptions of nature one can come across a legend telling the story of a fearful dragon which lived in a deep pit in the middle of a hill. People of Šišan immolated, i.e. offered him one of the most beautiful girls who was chosen by casting the lot. This legend incited Petra Blasković to write the text and direct her performance.
The programme entitled Medieval Šišan will be held in Šišan on 8 July 2017. As part of the manifestation starting at 6 p.m., there will be an open fireplace where the medieval life and its cuisine will be presented. You will have the chance to see craftsmen on their stands, enjoy in children's animation programmes like archery, swordplay, merry-go-round and traditional Istrian product's fair. At 9 p.m. you can watch the performance "Legends of Šišan," and at 9:45 listen to Milena Joksimović and Mauricio Levak giving talks about medieval times in the area of and surrounding Šišan where many historical and interesting facts, but also piquancies will be revealed.
The entrance is free. The meeting place is the centre of Šišan, in front of the church.
