The Palio is a competition in which a team of 5 people must roll a 500-litre barrel along a path between 600 meters and 1,500 meters long in the streets of the town. Only two people at a time can be involved in ‘pushing’ the barrel.

The prize is organized by the Associazione Città del Vino (Association of Wine Towns), but also teams from towns not belonging to the association can participate.

One stage of the Palio is held in Serrone while the final takes place in the town that has won the previous round.
