Bravio delle Botti Description

Bravio delle Botti - Running | Dance Performance | Parade in Florence.

Bravio delle Botti is a week-long festival and annual competition between Montepulciano’s eight districts: Cagnano, Collazzi, Le Coste, Gracciano, Poggiolo, San Donato, Talosa, and Voltaia. Every August, locals come together for a series of ceremonies and celebrations, and then cheer on their district champions in an arduous uphill race.

Keeping with a tradition that dates back to the Middle Ages, Bravio delle Botti 2013 features a race in which two athletes from each district, called “pushers,” roll barrels weighing more than 175 pounds as fast as they can along the winding streets of the historic city center. The winner receives the Bravio, a traditional painted cloth.

In 2013, Bravio delle Botti festivities also include traditional ceremonies like an opening parade and procession of candles. Check out the Bravio delle Botti website for more information on events and the history of the festival.
