Every year, on September 4, the victory of the Battle of Montaperti is commemorated with a torchlight procession. It starts near the site of Acqua Borra, proceding just below the Fattoria Le Pietre Vive to the monument at the foot of the Hill lit for the occasion. The event is particularly interesting because of the traditional medieval costumes worn by the participants in costume. On some occasions they also organize a reenactement of the battle: riders in costume with their horses actually live in a reconstructed medieval encampemet, preparing for battle and stayng in tents, getting warm and preparing food with many picturesque fires.
