Welcome to Florentia 2016

HEMAC Florentia 2016 is a great HEMA event held in Italy. It will be hosted in the wonderful city of Florence, from May 27th to May 29th 2016, and it is brought to you by the organizing effort of Sala d’Arme Achille Marozzo.



HEMAC Florentia will host several workshops held by expert instructors from the whole Europe.
HEMAC Florentia will focus its high quality workshops on a wide range of weapons, nicely mixing italian and other european martial traditions.
Lectures on different topics will also be held in a conference gym  together with posters about HEMA studies.


Like in previous years HEMAC Florentia will host at least the Ludus Magnus Tournament. It ‘s an open mixed weapons competitive tournament using a particular kind of ruleset, mostly different by the standards of HEMA community, since weapons will be chosen from fight to fight, among a list of several weapons, including side sword, long sword, dagger, sword and buckler, sword and dagger, spear, spear and rotella, sword and rotella, sword and cape, dagger and cape, two swords… and probably more!


Florence is the iconic european renaissance city. The organizing team for HEMAC Florentia will propose visits to the city and also community events during the nights.
Joining the event you will have the unique opportunity of living three days of pure HEMA feelings in a wonderful scenario.
Florence offers to its visitors an amazing variety of opportunities: starting from the dozens of famous museums and exibits, and ending with the delicacies of the italian food and drinks.
