Asti Palio, the oldest in Italy (1275)

Like every year, on the third Sunday of September, Asti celebrates its medieval splendor with the Palio, the oldest in Italy (1275). The exciting bareback horse race – 14 Rioni and Borghi (districts) of the city and 7 towns of the province challenging themselves – takes place in Piazza Alfieri from 3.30 pm. Before the race, at 2 pm, a parade with more than 1200 people in historical costumes starts from Piazza Cattedrale (Cathedral Square). In the morning, the blessing of the horses and jockeys on the Churchyards and the exhibition of the A.S.T.A. flag throwers in Piazza San Secondo are not to be missed.
From Thursday evening, the town colored with flags is brought to life by the Palio degli Sbandieratori (flag throwers competition) in Piazza San Secondo and on Friday and Saturday the traditional street market, the general trials in Piazza Alfieri and the ritual banquets in the evening are held.
