The Saracen Joust is an historical re-enactment that takes place in the medieval city of Arezzo since the thirteenth century. The participants of the Joust are the four districts in wich the city is divided: The district of Porta Crucifera (also known as Culcitrone), the district of Porta del Foro (also known as San Lorentino ), the District of Porta San Andrea and the District Porta Santo Spirito ( already knonw as called Porta del Borgo ). The Saracen Joust is an ancient knightly competition that origins from the Moiddle Ages and whose purpose is for the knight to hit a target, placed on the shield of the Buratto (an armor-plated dummy representing a Saracen holding a cat-o'-nine-tails in his hand and a shield on the other that impersonate the King of the Indies), with a lance and after a horse charge. All this must be done without being hit by the flail actioned by the rotation of the dummy. In ancient times this sport was actually a military exercise that slowly took on the characteristics of an event in which the knights would challenge each other in times of celebration or simply to show their ability.
