This medieval event in a historical-sporting tone, recalls the attack on the "castrum" by Vitelli the mercenary captain of Cesare Borgia. In August of 1501 Vitellozzo Vitelli, mercenary leader employed by Cesare Borgia, camped for several days with his soldiers under the walls of Contigliano, and then attacked the castle and plundered the countryside.
