LA MARCILIANA Medieval festival in Benedictine Court, XV century Venetian history
Saturday, 25 July from 8:00pm to 2:00 am and Sunday, 26 July from 6:00pm to 2:00am.
Ancient arts and professions, monks, pilgrim, weapon exercises, nobles, merchants, settlers, drummers and dancers arrange to meet in the court. At sunset, musicians, astronomers, fortune-tellers, fire-eaters, jesters and falconers will liven up the place involving the public in their shows.
Settlers and citizens of the duchy and the Venetian area are invited to the Marciliana festival.
On the occasion of this festival, La Corte Hotel makes available its spaces (indoor and outdoor) to accommodate all travellers and guests willing to immerse in medieval-flavour food.
The objective is to rediscover the true ancient flavours that characterized the XV century.
The hotel takes the name of “Taberna San Leonardo” (S. Leonard Inn) and offers a typical medieval menu, in which peasant food and noble food are served together in memory of monks, gastalds and peasants who worked together to make the lands of the area fertile (around 1300 fields), which once were marshy and after the recovery became vineyards and cereals or tobacco fields.

The menu offers:
- SUPA FREDA DE SEMI MINUDI ED ERBE (“Cold soup of tiny seeds and pot herbs”, a cold dish with barley, hulled wheat, beans, courgettes and carrots)
- SEPIOJNE CON AJO ET PREZEMOLO (Baby cuttlefishes with garlic and parsley)
- VIDELO ET SPEZIE (Seasoned beef meat)
- ERBE DE L'ORTO (“Vegetable garden herbs”, raw cabbage and onions)
- FRITELA (“Pancake”, monk’s sweet)
- VINELLO ET ACQUA FRIGIDA (Wine and fresh water)
- INFUSO DEL VIANDANTE (“Traveller’s infusion”, barley seasoned with cinnamon)
The menu is called “Traveller’s dish” to commemorate the ancient inns once full of travellers who stopped there to eat and rest after long exhausting journeys.

The Marciliana festival will take place on Saturday, 25 July from 8:00pm to 2:00am and Sunday, 26 July from 6:00pm to 2:00am.
Entrance is free.

As to food service, there is a trattoria (traditional Italian restaurant) close to the court offering local Veneto cookery.

Dodatkowe informacje
The La Corte Hotel is a historical residence situated in Padua hinterland. It’s surrounded by a wide garden and offers a professional B&B service. Masterly restored, it offers comfortable accommodation in a fascinating historical environment near to the cities of Padua, Venice and Chioggia.
The Ancient Romans called the area “Corrigium”, that is “strip of land emerged from the waters”, which later became Correzzola.
After the fall of the Roman Empire, the area was abandoned until the arrival, during the Middle Ages, of the Benedictine monks coming from the Saint Giustina monastery of Padua. The monks began a long-lasting and patient reclaim work, transforming these valleys in healthy and prolific lands. During the XVI century, the whole land was divided into five “gastaldie” (the equivalent of the English “demesne”, that is a portion of a land) and, in order to manage them, the monks built the majestic Benedectine Court of Correzzola, which belonged to them until the Napoleonic requisition. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, the land and the court became property of the Milanese family of Melzi D’Eryl.
