With great surprise on Saturday the 20th of October 2018 an extra Palio will take place, to commemorate the centenary of the end of the Great War.
Assegnazione: when horses are assigned to running contrade. Three powerful horses made Torre, Istrice & Valdimontone happy
Artist Sinta Tantra presents her Palio for August 2017 race, dadicated to sculptor Giovanni Dupré
Lupa, Aquila, Bruco will run with the other seven contrade
Very intense Palio with a never-ending mossa, Tartuca's horse had no intention to run, and at dawn Giraffa wins the race.
Very appreciated by the public the Palio for July race painted by artist Laura Brocchi.
We now know the four lucky contrade running for the Palio of July 2017: Aquila, Tartuca, Giraffa & Bruco.
The theme party for Lupa was the Epic Journey, of classical imprint. We had Hercules and his fellows sailing in the sea of perils, fighting to reach the glorious victory.
Good news for Istrice, well deserved Masgalano price for her arduous year
After waiting for long 27 years, Lupa triumphs in 2016 with both Palii, what a great celebration for Lupa!
The Palio documentary movie introduces you to the complexity of the race... Which is not really (only) a horse race!
