• About

    The Pisan June (Giugno Pisano) is a series of events that take place every year during the month of June, in Pisa, whose climax is represented by the celebrations held in honor of the patron saint of the city, San Ranieri (Saint Rainerius), on June 17th.

    The Pisan June 2020 will take place between May 28, when the historical game of Mazzascudo will be held in Piazza dei Cavalieri, and July 6, when the ceremony of the Marriage with the Sea will happen.

     

    SHORT HISTORY

    Originally, Giugno Pisano included only the Luminara held on the eve of the festival and the Palio of San Ranieri held on the day of the Saint, on June 17.

    Once every four years, the Pisan June also included the Regatta of the Ancient Maritime Republics, the historical reenactment event recalling the rivalry of the most famous Italian maritime republics: Amalfi, Pisa, Genoa and Venice, during which four rowing crews representing each republic compete against each other.

    In order to create a month of interesting events, the Gioco del Ponte (Battle of the Bridge) was also moved to June, on the last Saturday of the month. Over time, many other events were initiated, more or less linked to Saint Rainerius.

    Noteworthy are the recovered traditions of Mazzascudo, which takes place each year on May 28, in Piazza dei Cavalieri, and the Marriage with the Sea, which is held at the beginning of July. Although placed on different months, the two events open and close the Pisan June.
