2nd Palio of Siena 2019

Fri, 08/16/2019 - 19:00

To attend the Palio is to live in symbiosis with the Sienese people, in this long tradition, begun in 1633, the 17 contrade is a victory group, anciently symbol of the city power.

On August 16, 2019 at about 19.00, the second Palio di Siena of 2019, the Palio of the Assumption, kicks off, ten of the seventeen districts of Siena will compete in a race with no holds barred to declare the winning district.

The Palio is not a tourist event: it is the life of the Sienese people over time and in its different aspects and feelings. It has remote origins, with some regulations still valid since 1633, the year in which it is documented with certainty that the first Palio with horses was run

The territory of the City is divided into seventeen Contradas with borders established in 1729 by the Notice of Violante of Bavaria, Governor of the City.

The Palio is the Palio. No sociological, historical, anthropological interpretation could explain it. Sublimation and damnation together with the fate of every single Sienese and his citizenship. Burning pyre of senesity, in any case unparalleled confirmation of it.

Mario Luzi, poet, 1998
