Palio of the Districts 2013

Nocera Umbra (PG) - From 5 to 11 August returns the singular Palio of the Districts that pits the two districts and two different historical periods.

The Palio is played with skill challenges Goods - the horse race of Roccio, the Sfaffetta and Sedan - between Borgo San Martino, who sets his story in the period between the fourteenth and fifteenth century, and Porta Santa Croce, inspired by the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. A comparison thus two periods (1350-1450 and 1820-1920) and two pairs of symbolic colors: yellow wheat fields and blue waters of Nocera for the neighborhood Borgo San Martino, red, symbol of courage, and the green hope for the Porta Santa Croce.

Figurations, theater performances, parades in period costumes and exhibits that come alive in the streets and squares of the city center, joins the revival of forgotten flavors and all to be enjoyed within the town taverns.
