The Palio of this town is a very hard race where horses are mounted without the saddle, and it dates back to 1275, when Asti, a powerful and indipendent Commune, was universally renowned for its enterprising merchants and its experienced bankers.
Twenty-one steeds each representing a district or a commune, one thousand and two hundred people dressed in Medieval clothes and many inhabitants of the surrounding districts take part in the representation every third Sunday of September, involving the public in the recalling of an ancient and impressive atmosphere.
