On August 15, 1289, Charles II D'Angiò donated the fief of Gravina to Count Giovanni di Montfort of the Dukes of Burgundy.
The ceremony called "Constitutio de Feudis" is the initiation rite that the Centro Studi Nundinae recalls to celebrate the relationship of subjection by Count Giovanni di Montfort towards King Carlo II D'Angiò.
The ceremony consists of some simple gestures, but loaded with juridical value, as well as symbolic: the handing over of the city's keys by the King to his first feudal lord with the blessing of the bishop James II;
with the oath of the count, who recognizes himself as "the man of his King", the beginning of a period of prosperity for the city of Gravina, which thanks to the noble Montfort, will live moments of commercial exchange, called "nundinae" ( word of Latin origin, which etymologically means large market).
It will return to be the "Urbs Opulenta", then, as once the city will be enlivened by games, tournaments, musicians, dances, gaite, scenes of everyday life, which will revisit the medieval collective imagination.
