01 Feb Palio delle Contrade of Vigevano 2018
Like every year on the occasion of the celebrations for the patron saint of Vigevano, the Blessed Matteo Carreri, the appointment that should not be missed is the Palio delle Contrade.
The Palio was born in 1981 from a small number of districts. To Ognuna is associated with a parish of Vigevano. Every year in May and October this beautiful historical re-enactment takes life. It participates in the whole city and more than 500 participants. In those days the city goes back in time, in the distant 1440 at the time of the Sforza Family. Ludovico il Moro and Beatrice D’Este will be present. They will have the honor to open the games at the Castello Sforzesco in Vigevano and to follow the Renaissance Dinner. In the courtyard of the Castello Sforzesco and in October in the First Stable of the Castle, there will be some suggestive settings, with tools and artifacts built with skilful care.
We invite you to take note of these two events: May 12th and 13th and 12th – 13th – 14th – 15th October 2018.
We are waiting for you in May and in October!
