Ended successfully Isabella’s Night last weekend, the calendar of events in Cerreto Guidi will continue until September in a sort of Rossini crescendo. In the 65 days which go from Friday 6th July to Sunday 9th September, there are 27 days marked by events that often differ from each other, but have a common denominator: the enhancement of territory. Many initiatives in the calendar aim to increase the “Cerreto Guidi brand”, favouring the development of the tourist-cultural offer and the increment of visitors.
The Summer in Cerreto Guidi is the result of a team work that brings together the City Council, the Pro Loco, the CCN Buontalenti Association, St. Leonard’s Parish Church, the quarters and a growing number of associations which embrace the whole community. The first appointment in order of time is on Friday 6th, July at 9.00 pm with the performance of the “Cavalleria Rusticana” in Vittorio Emanuele II Square. This is only the beginning.
MEDICEA – The 45th edition of “Medicea Wine & Food Festival” scheduled from 13th to 15th July, is particularly intense, including the “Rubino Mediceo” (“Medicean Ruby”) wine competition which expects the proclamation of the winners with “Rubini in Villa” (“Ruby at Villa”) dinner. In that weekend are also scheduled the shows of the polyhedric Dario Ballantini and the “Mestolo d’Oro” (“Golden Ladle”).
TRACTORS MEETING – The middle of July has traditionally been reserved to the tractors meeting promoted by Gaceb, and it has reached the 22nd edition. Remember of farm typing and ploughing at night are evocative moments of rural tradition of a territory.
PALIO – The highlight of the summer is with the Palio del Cerro (Palio of Cerro) which this year reaches its 50th edition. A goal that is well worth a party, or rather many parties with a program tailored to celebrate a special edition. Special will be the great historical parade which, for the occasion, will be happened individually from the Palio with over 400 figures and a representation of the Calcio Storico Fiorentino (hard hitting historical football).
The fiftieth brings with it other news such as the Palio delle vecchie glorie (Palio of the ancient glory) and the Palio del gemellaggio (the twinning Palio) between Saint Marcel and Cerreto Guidi, not to mention the exhibition of the Palii assigned to the contrade (quarters) from 1969 to 2017 and the photographic exhibition on the 50th anniversary of the Palio.
LOGO and CATALOGUE – For the 50th edition of the Palio has been thought a logo ad hoc out, something that brought out immediately the exceptional nature of this goal and made it easily recognizable. The Società Galileo Comunicazione (Galileo Communication Society) has conceived and realized it, and it will mark all the summer appointments which, being so numerous, needed a container. A calendar of events (translated also in English) has been created. That is a useful vademecum of the summer in Cerreto Guidi. The catalogue is a complete and essential guide to keep at hand to remember dates and appointments of the summer in Cerreto Guidi, from 6th July to 9th September.
