Bravio 2018

In a climate full of charm and magic, a tough uphill race takes place every year in Montepulciano: a run of barrels called Bravìo.

The Bravìo delle Botti is the challenge between eight districts: Cagnano, Collazzi, Le Coste, Gracciano, Poggiolo, San Donato, Talosa and Voltaia, all located along the historic city center, which compete for a painted cloth, rolling barrels of about 80 kg each, along an uphill path of over a kilometer.

The barrels are pushed by two athletes "pushers", while the route of the race winds through the evocative streets of the historic center of the city until the arrival on the square of the Cathedral in Piazza Grande.
