Bravio delle Botti (Barrels Competition) – August 26th , 2012 – Montepulciano (SIENA)

 Bravio delle Botti (Barrels Competition)   August 26th , 2012   Montepulciano (SIENA)

In Montepulciano, a nice village near Siena, every year a tiring uphill race takes place: a race of barrels called Bravìo.
Eight districts compete for a painted cloth by rolling barrels (of approximately 80 kg each) along an uphill path for more than 1 km.
The path of the heavy barrels winds through the picturesque streets of the old town until the finish line located in the Piazza Grande square in front of the Cathedral.
The word Bravìo derives from the vulgar “Bravium” and indicates the painted cloth bearing the image of the patron saint St. John the Beheaded, in whose honor the citizens celebrate the feast.
The tradition of the past to play this race riding horses was interrupted in the seventeenth century and the inclusion in the modern era of the barrels wants to be a strong call to one of the most typical product of the town: the wine of Montepulciano.

 

At 3 o’clock p.m. : historical parade

At 7 o’ clock p.m.  race with the barrels
