2 luglio 2022
On 26 May 2019, a draw was held for the Palio of the Madonna of Provenzano of 2 July 2019. The seven districts (contrade) that were not allowed to participate were certain of their place on 2 July 2020. However, Nicchio and Tartuca still have a suspension to pay, so 5 contrade instead of 3 will be drawn. Also Oca is suspended for her behaviour during the palio of august 2019. So even 6 contrade are to be drawn. After its suspension, Valdimontone will reappear on the Piazza for the first time since 2018. Because of covid-19 no Palio’s were held in 2020 and 2021. The principles will apply for the next july-Palio.
Since the introduction of penalties in 1967 it never happened that 6 contrade were drawn. In 1991, 6 districts were drawn, 1 of which replaced Oca, which had to serve as a suspension. The same happened in 1998 and 2012 when the suspensions of Tartuca and Chiocciola (1998) and Lupa and Istrice (2012) could be served by draw.
The drappellone will be made by Emma Sergeant.
The Palio was won by Drago. You can find all info here.
16 agosto 2022
Since July 7, 2019 we know which contrade the Palio will run on August 16, 2020. This will not change as a result of possible suspensions. Tartuca and Nicchio will participate again for the first time since 2018. Because of covid-19 no Palio’s were held in 2020 and 2021. The principles will apply for the next august-Palio.
The estrazione of the three contrade took place on Sunday 10 July. Onda, Selva and Chiocciola were drawn.
The drappellone will be made by Andrea Anastasio.
The Palio was won by Leocorno. You can find all info here.
As we see at the suspended fantini we discover 3 jockeys who cannot participate :
- Antonio Siri detto Amsicora : 7 palios
- Luigi Bruschelli detto Trecciolino : 1 palio (will be able to ride in august)
- Andrea Chessa detto Nappa II : 4 palios
- Massimo Columbu detto Veleno II could return after his punishment of 10 palios in the august Palio
Giuseppe Zedde detto Gingillo who missed the palios in 2019 due to suspension can return too.
