Forza Matiggia!

Saturday night saw the running of the Trevi palio with teams from the three different areas of Trevi competing, namely:-

Terziere Castello
Terziere Matiggia
Terziere Piano

The event entails a team pushing and pulling an old horse cart over a course ending in the central Piazza Mazzini. Then one member of the team runs and grabs a key and ascend the clock tower and touches the clock tower bell with the key.

This year, for only the fourth time in the history of the event, Matiggia won and I am proud to say Casa Margherita is located in Matigge.
