Wine Festival

From 21 to 23 july in Palazzone (San Casciano dei Bagni): "Festa del Vino - Wine Festival" In July, the village of Palazzone (hamlet of San Casciano dei Bagni) will host again the Wine Festival. That between this old village and good wine, is a bond that has its roots in a distant past, so much that it seems that this small town has been famous for the production of fine wine since the sixteenth century. Of course, a plus factor for the good success of the event is also the particular location of the village, right in the border area between Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio, which encourages the creation of high quality products, thanks to the blend of territorial realities incredibly varied, and yet equally outstanding for the quality and richness of their food and wine. On the one hand, the gentle Tuscan hills; on the other one, the…

Palio di San Cassiano

The traditional “Palio di San Cassiano” is an event, which animates the historical center of San Casciano dei Bagni, a small town that still preserves its historic buildings. The four districts of the city (Campanile, Porticciola, Corso and Gattineto) compete in various games, taking the historical center back in time. The event's program usually starts with the traditional parade in Renaissance costumes, entirely hand-sewn by the women of the town; afterwards, the program features the challenge between the districts. The exciting and entertaining races concern some traditional games, such as the Greasy Pole (in which the competitors must win prizes, usually food, placed on the top of a pole) and the sack race. However, the heart of the event is undoubtedly the Frogs’ Race: along a path inside the historical center of the town, the competitors push a wheelbarrow topped with a frog. The main concern is not to let…

Poor theatre show “Malcomune”

From July 22nd to August 4th will be staged in Monticchiello, fraz. of Pienza, the show of the Teatro Povero di Monticchiello "Malcomune". According to tradition the show of the Teatro Povero (Poor theatre) is conceived, discussed, written and finally even played by the inhabitants of the small village. Now at its 51st edition, the performance of this year tells about a small, apparently close, community, which, while welcoming the news of another birth, sees the development of an administrative simplification project, ruthless as an algorithm. This duality becomes a source of reflection for the spectator and the mirror of human nature perpetually divided between the search for others and the temptation to dispel them. The show goes on stage every night from 22 July to 14 August (except Monday 24 and 31 July) at 21.30. Entrance € 13, reduced (children up to 12 years) € 7. Info and booking…
