From Saturday 20 to Sunday 28 August, a series of events leading to the culminating moment for the town: the Bravìo delle Botti, or Wine Barrel Race.

BRAVÌO DELLE BOTTI 2017

Numerous are the activities to enjoy. Among them, each evening there are dinners in the contradas featuring the typical dishes of the local cuisine; then, the night practices of the barrel pushers (20 and 25 August excepted), to get a small taste of the upcoming event.
On 20 August, at 9.30 p.m. in Piazza Grande, proclamation by the Gonfalonier with show in the Piazza.
On 25 August, at 9.00 p.m. in Corteo dei Ceri. An evocative cortege crosses the historical town centre and reaches Piazza Grande, where a grand night show is held.
Finally, on Sunday, 28 August, the Bravìo is run: the barrel pushers – two per each contrada – push wine barrels weighing 80 kg on a course that includes very steep climbs. The finish line is in Piazza Grande, in a flurry of flags and enthusiasm.
