The Palio is back in attendance after a two-year stop due to Covid. It is the district of Leocorno to win the provaccia. In doubt tonight the race for the Porcupine and the Civetta, due to slight injuries to horses (ANSA)

It was the Leocorno district that won the provaccia of the Palio di Siena in view of tonight's career.

The districts of Istrice and Civetta

did not take part in the provaccia

due to slight injuries to the horses reported respectively in the general test and in the third test.

Their presence this evening at the Palio, which returns to the streets of Siena after a two-year stop for Covid, remains in doubt.

"The Palio is regaining its exceptional normality, this is the message that this administration wanted to give to the city".

This was said by

the mayor of Siena Luigi De Mossi

during the traditional press conference that precedes tonight's Palio, dedicated to the Madonna of Provenzano.

"After two years of forced stop in which we had to give up our celebration of the people, the city, the districts and the whole Sienese community have re-embraced their culture, their tradition, their values ​​with joy and passion - said De Mossi It

was a difficult two years, but that stop was necessary

to protect an even more precious asset than the Palio and the districts, that is public health "." Thanks to that effort in recent days - he added - we have been able to return to our exceptional normality, unique in history and in the world;

as I have already had the opportunity to say, without presumption, we are the story. "Among the guests of the Municipality for the Palio also the lawyer Umberto Ambrosoli, son of Giorgio, former liquidator of the Italian Private Bank, assassinated on 11 July 1979. De Mossi, still in a press conference today, proposed to name a room in the Palazzo di Giustizia in Siena after Giorgio Ambrosoli.
