Città della Pieve in Palio

The most appreciated event in Città della Pieve

The plan of Città della Pieve has not changed much since the municipal and so-called Terzieri arise from the division of the city into three portions to reflect the three social classes of the time: the third castle (Aristocracy), the Terziere Inside Borough (Middle class ) and Terziere Casalino (Farmers).

La Pieve is therefore always been divided into three parts, often in conflict with each other and that spirit has been passed down to the present day, leading to the birth of the historical re-enactment that takes its name Terzieri.

I Terzieri contend the Pallium, a tapestry painted by Antonio Brown, Pievesi of origin, that August 15 is being returned from Terziere winner of the last edition to the Podestà of Castel della Pieve to the day of Caccia del Toro, a re-enactment not bloody hunts of ancient Siena, sort of bullfighting before its time, but today it is a compelling race archery, three archers per Terziere have three arrows each to hit moving targets in the shape of a bull mounted on a carousel; each bull has a band that bears the colors of one of the Terzieri that the archers must hit. The difficulty? The carousel gradually increases in speed from the first to the third round.

The event will kick off on August 12 with the play "Il nipote del sor Priore" in Terziere Casalino and will end on August 24 with The Hunt Toro, while during the thirteen days of the event will be marked by celebrations specific to each Terziere , from the festivities in the Castle in honor of San Rocco duels renaissance of Borgo Dentro to the Night of the Barbican, a reenactment of Casalino.

During the celebrations it will also open the Taverne dei Terzieri, another opportunity to taste the culinary traditions of Città della Pieve.
