🏰 The Barrels Race 🏆
Every year, in an atmosphere full of charm and magic, in Montepulciano an arduous uphill race takes place: a race of barrels called Bravìo.Protected content is the challenge between eight districts: Cagnano, Collazzi, Le Coste, Gracciano, Poggiolo, San Donato, Talosa and Voltaia, which spread all along the historical city centre. The districts fight over a painted cloth (il panno), by rolling barrels about 80 kg each along an uphill path of over a kilometer long. The barrels are pushed by two athletic “pushers”, while the route of the race unfolds the picturesque streets of the historical city centre, until the arrival, located on the cathedral square in Piazza Grande.
