The Palio of the "Castel d'Amore"

The Origins

The first historical commemoration of Castelfranco Veneto took place in 1997 when some citizens of the "borghi" (local villages and districts), expressed the desire to celebrate in some way the 800th anniversary of the construction of the castle walls of their town.
They formed "The Association of the Palio of Castelfranco Veneto" which is made up of local groups from the various areas and villages around the town along with the local tourist board.

The Celebrations : the First Two Weekends in September

These relate to the period from around 1100, when the castle walls were built by the city of Treviso which goverened the town, until 1339 when Castelfranco Veneto became part of the Serenissima Republic of Venice.
