Ferrara and the Palio

Ferrara and the Palio

Last Sunday [June 17th] our bloggers have been to the beautiful art city of Ferrara, located in the middle of the Po Valley. From 1995 on, UNESCO has included Ferrara in the list of World Cultural Heritage as a wonderful example of a town planned in the Renaissance and still keeping its historical centre intact.

Discover more on the official Tourist Office Site.

On that day an important historical re-enactment took place: the closing event of Palio di Ferrara, with its historical parade in typical costumes of the 15th Century & the four races [Boys, Girls, Donkeys & Horses] to win the precious banner dedicated to Saint George.
