Palio dei Trampoli - Schieti di Urbino | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Palio dei Trampoli means “race of stilts,” and this unique two-day event, which takes place every June, is dedicated to celebrating a local tradition. In the 1940s, miners and farmers needed to cross the nearby Foglia River in order to go to and from work and to sell their products. It wasn’t long before the locals started holding summer stiltwalking races to the castle at the top of the town of Schieti.
