The “ForteBraccio Veregrense” scrima school was founded in 2003 by the Captain and Magister Diego Giulietti, who was before a member of “Arme Ascolum” of Ascoli Piceno, one of the most ancient Italian scrima school.
The Fellowship, besides the study and the research of the ancient European martial art, re-enacts the fights and the lifestyle of various historical periods and people. Three in particular:
- The Lombard Fara of the Spoleto’s dukedom (VII-VIII Century).
- The “Lancia Templare” or the “Militia Comunale Italiana” (XII-XIII Century).
- The “Compagnia di Ventura” (XV Century).
Great emphasis is dedicated to the re-enactment of the Lombard Period in Italy (VI-VIII Century), so that they deserve to be appreciated by important historians and archaeologists, such as the medievalist Mrs. Elena Percivaldi and the Professor Marco Valenti.
