Historia Viva was born to further historical recreation and re-enactment in Spain, where this form of educational entertainment (or however you define it) is little known. It houses an introduction to recreation as well as some resources.
The site has grown (through various names and URLs) and now intends to house the information site of two forming groups: one in Parma, Italy, and one in Gran Canaria, Spain; as well as for a collection of people from various other people (from different regions of Spain and even other countries) who are getting interested to some degree or other. That is the main reason for most of the material being in Spanish or Italian. Another is that there many more fine sites offering information in English.
Needless to say, we're all amateurs - just lovers of history who like the practical approach of living historians and recreationists. We ask no one to take anything here as gospel (and in fact encourage quite the opposite) - if you see anything that needs correcting let us know your reasons or sources.
I hate to exclude people who don't speak Spanish and would like to translate everything here to every other language in case it ever interests anyone. Unfortunately my time is limited and my knowledge of foreign languages even more so. But I try to give an English version of the more interesting bits, particularly if they're not covered by English-language sites.
If anything in particular interests you but you can not read Spanish, you can:
