Querceta: All you need to know
Such massive participation, greater than in any other event in Italy, not only confirms the Versilieses' spirituality, their insatiable need to vent their imaginations, but also offers the spectators striking impressive theatrical aspects.
The elegance of the costumes, the picturesque ancient ceremony, the allure of colours, banners, youthfulness and music constitute an absolutely unique, inimitable tableau. The rivalry among the districts comes to its culmination in the Palio: the donkey race. The district factions, who have Tuscan blood in their veins and therefore love competition, participate in this moment with intensity and emotion that infects even the most disenchanted spectators.
