6 January

Mass of the Spadone and historical re-enactment

The Mass of the Spadone celebrates Epiphany in the Cathedral, and is one of the most evocative and impressive liturgical rites that the Church has preserved. It precedes a re-enactment, by hundreds of costumed figures, of the entry of Patriarch Marquardo von Randeck into Cividale in 1366.


Easter Sunday and Easter Monday

The Game of “Truc”

The traditional and ancient game of “Truc” is  unique to Cividale and is played only on Easter Sunday and Easter Monday. Coloured eggs are rolled into a sand-filled sloped oval basin of traditional design . The rules are strict, and  the aim is to roll  the eggs so that they finish in close contact.




A festival of prose, music, dance, poetry, visual arts and puppetry from Central European countries, this multi-cultural event is held every year in July. The theme is different each time, but performances featuring esteemed companies and artists from Central Europe are always at its core.



International Courses of Musical Proficiency

Cividale’s musical proficiency courses provide lessons to soloists and chamber musicians of any nationality or age, who may attend as actual students or as observers. They give the public an opportunity to listen to master teachers, celebrated guest musicians and some of the more talented students, at concerts held in many of the churches, villas and castles in the area.



The Palio of San Donato

A historical re-evocation of the celebrated tournament that was held in Cividale del Friuli from the 14th Century during the Festival of the Patron Saint. Cividale is transformed into a medieval city, with long, majestic processions of costumed characters roaming the streets of its historic centre and challenging each other in fierce duels and spectacular combats, while local favourites compete to win the trophy in the race for the Palio di San Donato.
