{: it} The Palio dei Terzieri of Città della Pieve has deeply rooted origins over the centuries, just think that these Terzieri are mentioned for the first time in the act of submission to the city of Perugia in 1250. This interrupted the autonomy municipal of the city due to the protection of Emperor Federcio II of Swabia. Even the division and the urban layout of the city have something suggestive, it has remained unchanged up to the present day; the silhouette of the city in some ways resembles that of an eagle, the parts of the eagle are identified with the third parties, which represent the three censuses present in the medieval city. The head is assigned to the third district Castello, an aristocrat, to the body by the district Borgo Dentro which headed the social class of the bourgeoisie and to the tail-wing the district Casalino with the peasants.

At the end of the parade the allegorical float, of purely classical inspiration, is paraded through the city street accompanied by Renaissance melodies performed by a group of musicians. On the day of the palio, after the historical procession that starts from Piazza Plebiscito and accompanies the archers to the Campo di Santa Lucia, the real challenge is held.Three champions for each district must shoot three arrows each at targets in the shape of Chianini bulls, I mounted a single carousel, each bull is marked with a band with the color of the district and for each turn, there are 3, the speed of the carousel increases and it becomes more and more difficult to hit the target.

The Palio dei Terzieri and the Caccia del Toro, evoke in a bloodless way the Sienese hunts, which in the past took place in Siena, a Ghibelline city to which Città della Pieve was deeply linked for traditions, culture and above all for being together with Siena rebel against the state della Chiesa. {:} {: en} The Palio dei Terzieri of Città della Pieve is an historical re-enactment deeply rooted back in the Middle Ages. The third parties, or quarters, are appointed for the first time in 1250 in the act of submission to the city of Perugia. Città della Pieve lost its municipal autonomy because of the protection of Emperor Frederick II of Swabia. The division into quarters and the urban layout of the city are extremely charming, since they came unchanged during the centuries to the present day. The silhouette of the city in some ways reminds of an eagle split into three different parts that identify with the three Terzieri and represent the division into three censuses of people back in the Middle Ages. The head is assigned to Terrier Castello, standing for aristocracy; the body of the eagle is the Terrier Borgo Dentro, which led the bourgeoisie; finally, the wings and tail stand for perifere Casalino, associated with farmers. The Palio begins on August 15th with the Proposal of Challenge: the challenge is thrown and the prize is returned to the mayor of Città della Pieve by last year's winners. The same prize will be carried during the procession on the day of the Bull Hunting - this majestic parade is opened by the banner of the city, with the participation of about 800 people in medieval costumes, ranging from ladies, knights, soldiers, peasants and fire eaters who animate the streets of the city and create a proper medieval atmosphere. A splendid classical float closes the parade, accompanied by Renaissance melodies performed by a group of musicians through the streets of the city. On the day of the Palio, after a procession starting from Piazza Plebiscito and accompanying the archers to the Saint Lucia field, the main challenge takes place. Each third party has three archers; each one of them has three arrows to shoot at Chianina-bull shaped targets mounted on a single carousel. Each bull is marked with a band with the Terrier's color; the carousels spins faster and faster during the three rounds, and hitting the target becomes increasingly difficult. The winning third party is awarded the palio, a richly painted banner from the local master painter Antonio Marroni. The Palio dei Terzieri and the Bull Hunting evoke in a bloodless way the hunts that took place in the past in Siena, the Tuscan Ghibelline city deeply linked to Città della Pieve thanks to their common traditions, culture and, above all, their shared fight against the State of the Church. {:} {: fr} The "Palio dei Terrier" of Città della Pieve a des origines profoundly ancrées dans les siècles: the suffit de penser que ces "Terrier" sont nommé pour la première fois dans l ' acte de soumission à Pérouse du 1250.
