Siena – Palio di Provenzano of July 2, 2014
Posted on February 7, 2014 Agriturismo I Pitti Blog
Siena, in a quiet and peaceful town during the winter months , with the arrival of summer changes face and explodes with enthusiasm for the Palio . This is the most important festival of the city, a horse race in the heart of the historic center , Piazza del Campo, where ten of the seventeen districts in which the city is divided compete on 2 July and 16 August , in honor of the Virgin Mary. The prize to the winner is a drape of silk painting , the Palio in fact, that on July 2 is dedicated to the Madonna of Provenzano .

But the competitive aspect and the ride in the “Field” are just the tip of an iceberg that , at its base , is made ​​up of the work and activities of the Districts , the real soul and heart of the fabric of the city throughout the year . In the days of the festival , the atmosphere in the city is hot. On June 29 , during the Palio of July, the horses are assigned at random to districts that take part in the race . It ‘ the first moment when the fortune , the real star of the party, issue a verdict decisive for the final victory . Although anything can happen in the Palio , in fact, have a good horse grow your chances of winning . After the “treats” , so you call the assignment of the horses , the days preceding the Palio are marked by trials, one in the morning and once in the evening , with which the riders try their ” race horses ” before the decisive race on the evening of July 2. In the districts, during the days of the Feast dinners , singing and sharing moments enliven the streets of the city. Until the day of the Palio with ” historical walk ” and the ride that magically renew a unique event through which Siena relives its glorious history .

Siena, tranquilla e pacata cittadina durante i mesi invernali, con l’arrivo dell’estate cambia volto ed esplode di entusiasmo per il Palio. Si tratta della festa più importante della città, una corsa di cavalli nel cuore del centro storico, in Piazza del Campo, dove dieci delle diciassette contrade in cui è divisa la città si sfidano, il 2 luglio e il 16 agosto, in onore della Vergine Maria. Il premio riservato al vincitore è un drappo di seta dipinto, il Palio appunto, che il 2 luglio è dedicato alla Madonna di Provenzano.

Ma l’aspetto competitivo e la corsa nel “Campo” sono solo la punta di un iceberg che, alla sua base, è costituito dal lavoro e dell’attività delle Contrade, vera anima e cuore pulsante del tessuto cittadino durante tutto l’anno. Nei giorni della Festa, l’atmosfera in città si surriscalda. Il 29 giugno, in occasione del Palio di luglio, vengono

My heart belongs to Chianti

Add your thoughts here… (optional)

ellensinoff

Yesterday was a transitional day. We left our base in Cortona and headed north toward the incredibly scenic hills of Chianti, the classic image of Tuscany. We arrived at Poggio delle Rose late in the afternoon. No matter how many times I’ve been here, the view always comes as a surprise. It’s so much more beautiful than is possible to remember. Clients who stayed here told me they programmed the location in their GPS as “heaven,” and it’s easy to understand why. This place is dreamy.
