Inspired by the nobility, grace, and precision of the Giostra della Quintana Festival, S&G Thesign evokes these same principles with every product sold.
Since 1613, the Giostra della Quintana Festival in Foligno, Italy, has given the most noble knights and families an opportunity to compete for the region’s highest honor.
Riding atop majestic horses, ten knights race around a 754-meter track in the shape of the infinity symbol. At the center intersection, a statue of the Roman god, Mars, holds a palm-sized ring that the riders must spear while galloping at full speed.
The Giostra della Quintana remains the most challenging equestrian competition in Italy today.
