Event Name : Palio from Casole d`Elsa
Description : The Palio di Casole d`Elsa is a horse race, ridden by jockeys, which takes place every year, the 2nd Sunday of July at 18.30 in honor of San Isidoro. Its origins are lost in antiquity. The race is done, riding bareback, on a test track in dirt that has the unique characteristic to develop hill and, therefore, makes the race particularly challenging for both horse and jockeys. It 'a prize called the "Roman" or "prize along" that has a starting point different from that of arrival and therefore does not circulate as the Palio of Siena. A week before the Palio is characterized by evening parties and dinners in the districts. The participating districts are 6 and correspond to specific territorial divisions: Rivellino Pievalle, Countryside, whiting, Horse, Monteguidi. Each Contrada has its own color and a badge that identifies it. E 'regulated by a statute, led by a Captain and represented by a President. A specific regulation approved by the Town Council should regulate all procedures related to the event, giving the Council the management of the Palio race and all the steps that precede it. The first phase of the Palio, which provides the Saturday before the race itself, are carried out: the extraction battery qualification, the qualification courses el'abbinamento horses, who have reported the 6 best times, at 6 districts. The second phase begins with the traditional Sunday morning Mass in honor of the Patron Saint Isidore, patron of farmers. Continues in the afternoon at 18 with the blessing of the horses in Freedom Square, opposite the Collegiate Church of St. Maria Assunta, then move on the racetrack, where, at 18.30, will run the Palio. At the district winner of the Palio, as a reward, around 19.30 will receive the banner (also grabs or rag), which is generally a banner created by artists engaged for this purpose. In the days following the victory, of joy, singing and dinner, open to all, will characterize the life of the district and its winning Contrada.
