A man in period costume during the Palio in the medieval town of Gualdo Tadino in Umbria - stock photo

Gualdo Tadino, Umbria, Italy, September 30 -- A scene from the traditional Palio di San Michele Arcangelo (Palio of St Archangel Michael) in the medieval town of Gualdo Tadino, in Umbria. An ancient three-day festival that involves the entire community in a traditional Corteo Storico (Historical and Allegoric Parade) and culminates with a donkey race between the four 'contrade' (districts) of this medieval town. In the photo, an adult man in medieval costume reads the proclamation of the beginning of the Palio during a scene of the Historical and Allegoric Parade. An important center since Roman times, Gualdo Tadino rises between Foligno and Gubbio along the ancient Flaminia consular road, traced by the Romans. Its history spans the entire Middle Ages and, despite being partially destroyed and sacked several times and placed under the dominion of Perugia, this ancient Umbrian center still retains its medieval charm. The Umbria region, considered the green lung of Italy for its wooded mountains, is characterized by a perfect integration between nature and the presence of man, in a context of environmental sustainability and healthy life. In addition to its immense artistic and historical heritage, Umbria is famous for its food and wine production and for the high quality of the olive oil produced in these lands.
