Description

A chess game may not be an attraction to the majority of tourists, but one with a history of intrigue, royalty, and duels? That is something entirely different. Such an unusual event is the Partita a Scacchi con Personaggi Viventi; where the medieval town square of Marostica, Italy, fills with tables and chess pieces, celebrating a famous duel between two aristocrats wanting to marry a young princess- all done over a game of chess. So enter into this beautiful town and watch both the interesting games and shows by some of the most important classical artists during the breaks. Have a completely unique experience- and if you're a chess master, why not enter into the battle?
