The we will know who will participate in the Palio on August 16, alongside Tartuca, Lupa, Giraffa, Civetta, Leocorno, Nicchio and Valdimontone. The flags of the drawn contrade will be displayed on the windows on the first floor of the Palazzo Pubblico, next to those who were already allowed to participate.
