HISTORICAL PALIO DELLE CONTRADE IN CASTEL DEL PIANO - The four noble contradts challenge September 8th as tradition

The Palio of Castel del Piano is born from centuries-old tradition of venerating the Blessed Virgin of the Graces with solemn functions and horse racing.
The Palio has very ancient origins, dating back to the "Fair of Goods and Livestock" of September 9, 1402, granted by the Republic of Siena, who had conquered the country in 1331, the world-renowned Guidoriccio from Fogliano.
The Palio takes place on September 8th in Piazza Garibaldi (the retorts), but it is preceded by two days, September 6, the morning visiting the vet, the afternoon rush the selection batteries for the selection of horses that will run the career, to follow the "Memorial Francesco Frediani" which is won by the horse cleaner and better behaved during the batteries, the night the combination of the horses to the contrade, that from that moment the accudiranno until the evening of September 8 . On September 7, we attend memorial Gastone Pioli, where they run the non-selected horses to race the Palio. The day ends with the dress rehearsal and then the propitiatory dinner each district is in their own ward to ingratiate himself with the fortune. On September 8 is the day of the Palio: the morning is running the provaccia, later the parade winds through the village and ends in Piazza Madonna with heralded the flag wavers of the four districts; in the afternoon the procession is repeated but only within Garibaldi square, before leaving the space to the Palio. After the race the victorious district pays homage to Our Lady of Grace and carries the banner in triumph.
