Torino - Turin

The members of the cultural association Speculum Historiae are connected by love for history, desire of experience in first person how our ancestor’s lives were like, and the hope to pass over this passion to other people.

The association aims to re-enact in detail every aspect of the daily middle-age life, from the household to the militia side, from religion to craft making. Every reconstruction is based on historical documents, iconography and archaeological findings in order to create a detailed and correct reconstruction.

The association takes up different projects: living history, cultural activities, historical combat and archery, dressmaking and handcraft, investigation on local history. Our distinctive traits are the close attention to details and the constant improvement that we aim.


L’amore per la Storia, il desiderio di poter rivivere in prima persona le esperienze dei nostri antenati e l’ideale di riuscire a trasmettere questa passione ad altri: questo è quanto accomuna i membri dell’Associazione Culturale Speculum Historiae.

L’Associazione si propone di ricostruire nel dettaglio ogni aspetto della vita dei nostri avi, dagli eventi domestici a quelli militari, dalla religione all’artigianato, basandosi su documenti, iconografia e reperti al fine di garantire una riproduzione corretta e precisa.

L'Associazione Culturale Speculum Historiae si dedica a diversi progetti: la ricostruzione storica "in costume", attività culturali in collaborazione con altre associazioni, la sperimentazione del combattimento e dell'arcieria storica, sartoria ed artigianato, l'approfondimento della storia locale e molto altro. La cura e la precisione dei dettagli e il continuo tentativo di migliorarci, insieme ad un sincero entusiasmo in ciò che facciamo, è quanto ci distingue.
Hey there! 
I've been less than present writing the journal but I always try to keep up with some uptates with new pictures! 
As you may have seen by our recent uploads, this September we organized a big event we decided to call "End of Summer Fair", in collaboration with Medieval Village at Turin. We invited lots of reenactment groups from all Italy for a total of around 80 reenactors, to recreate what may have been a city fair in the first decades of XV century, in the Piedmont area. The fair was a success in terms of public and we certainly hope to renew this appointment for the next year! 
For more but less good pictures please check our facebook page here:…
We are almost at the end of our reenactment year and just a couple of events awaits us: on next Sunday we will be again at the Medieval Village in Turin, while in December there will be the two last event of the "Arduino the DVD" series, one of which will be held at the Archaeology Museum of Turin and the other one at the San Giorgio Canavese's Castle:…
Let's keep up with the good work!
