 Il PIGIO October, 6th and 7th, 2012   POGGIBONSI (SIENA) 

On October 6th and 7th  in Poggibonsi, a few kilometers from Siena, the feast of the “Pigio” will be held, a competition that shows the ancient technique of grape pressing .

 

The competition involves the seven districts of the city territory that vie for the”Boccione” (a demijohn, decorated by a local artist, that is for the District that produces more juice).

The other prize to compete for, is that of the “Zipolo” (a work of art derived from the demijohn cap), it is delivered to the District that organizes the best parade in the streets of Old Town.
A nice  and lively  celebration to relive colors and scents of the past.
