Drago, Bruco, Chiocciola, Pantera, Civetta and Torre were just drawn in the Sala degli Arazzi in the Palazzo Pubblico of Siena. Around a quarter past 7, the first flag was hung at the town hall after a trumpet blast. The five others soon followed. They complete the participants of the Palio of July 2, 2022; the first since August 2019 due to the Covid pandemic.
Valdimontone, Istrice, Leocorno and Lupa were already certain to participate. Nicchio, Oca and Tartuca were disqualified.
In addition to Lupa and Istrice, rivals Leocorno-Civetta will also take their place at the starting line.
The next days we will share images of the draw as soon as they are offered on the usual channels of Canale3 and SienaTV.
