On Saturday, July 27th, 2024, it is taking place the last event of the Historical Carousel of Cori, a small town in the province of Latina: the Palio di Sant’Oliva (Saint Oliva’s Palio), that is preceded by two other events in June: the Priors’ oath and the Palio of Madonna of the Rescue.

The Saint Oliva’s Palio is a historical reenactment of the 16th-Century celebrations held in honor of Saint Oliva, patron Saint of the city since the 12th Century.

The Palio is a ring race, a spectacular competition involving knights and horses. While riding, the Knights’ goal is to center small rings with a dagger. The Palio is won by the district that pierced most of the rings.

A historical parade takes place just before the Palio, passing through the streets of Cori. It features about 400 figures wearing Renaissance costumes, divided into 4 groups representing the communities of Cory and its three gates (districts): Ninfina, Romana e Signina.

Like in June, propitiatory dinners in the taverns of Cori the night before the Palio.
