After the one on July 2, the Palio di Siena on August 16 was also canceled. The City Council unanimously decided that Career in Piazza del Campo is currently considered “not compatible with the pandemic emergency and with the restriction measures in force”.
“It is a very painful decision but the health conditions do not allow the Palio to be held on August 16 in the form of a party that has for our city,” said Mayor Luigi De Mossi.
Even in 2020 the two Palios did not run due to Covid. The hypothesis of an extraordinary career between September and October is emerging in the Municipality and among the Contrade, but the decision can only be made based on the progress of the Covid pandemic and the results of the consequent vaccinations.
