In keeping with traditions in the rest of Umbria and elsewhere in Italy, Spoleto celebrates "Corteo delle Vaite" and is, of course, divided into vaiti, each vaite having its own banner. 

Le Vaite del XVI secolo August 15 - Feast of the Assumption

Le Vaite: This event takes place from 15 August (Ferragosto) to the first Sunday of September in honour of Lucrezia Borgia who was a Spoleto governor in 1499 and includes mediaeval dinners, tournaments, historical parades, conferences, concerts, cinemas, exhibitions and more. The costume parade and the show of flag-wavers, archers, crossbowmen, horsemen ends the feast.
