Event descriptionFriday 22nd March In the afternoon, competition in Ascea historical centre. Ascea is a village probably founded around 1000 DC, which lies inside the National Park of Cilento e Valle di Diano. Saturday 23rd March In the morning, competition in Paestum Archeological Park. Paestum was a major ancient Greek city on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea in Magna Grecia (southern Italy). The ruins of Paestum are famous for their three ancient Greek temples in the Doric order, dating from about 600 to 450 BC, which are in a very good state of preservation. The city walls and amphitheatre are largely intact, and the bottom of the walls of many other structures remain, as well as paved roads. Visit to “Il Tempio” cheese factory, and possibility of lunch with cheese menu. Sunday 24th March Competition in Benevento city. Benevento, founded before 280 BC, was then conquered by Romans. The importance of Benevento in classical times is vouched for by the many remains of antiquity which it possesses, of which the most famous is the triumphal arch erected in honour of Trajan by the senate and people of Rome in 114, with important reliefs relating to its history. Enclosed in the walls, this construction marked the entrance in Benevento of the Via Traiana, the road built by the Spanish emperor to shorten the path from Rome to Brindisi.
