Palio di Siena 16 Agosto 2019 il mio racconto Fotografico

Foto Palio Siena 2019 BLOG DI GABRIELE FORTI:

Cade un canape , una corda ben intrecciata, possente, ed ecco tutto si anima ….ho sempre pensato che bastano tre giri di piazza per intrecciare come fa un tessitore i fili colorati di una grande corda che servirà per l’anno successivo….. i variopinti cavalli e fantini si muvono nel tufo intecciando movimenti e traiettorie, avvolgono idealmente un nuovo canape che ha l’anima dei colori di contrada …da quell’intreccio di colori (gli stessi che contiene lo spettro della luce) nascerà un’altro canape che cadrà alla successiva Mossa rinnovandosi. Cosi dove muore una corsa è già pronto qualcosa che ne farà vivere un’altra…un nuovo canape, una nuova carriera. Felice e onorato sempre di immortalare la corsa più bella al mondo: il Palio di Siena!

Choreography of the Carabinieri’s squad 2018

SIENA, 16th August 2018

In the tense silence that anticipates the last test before the great event, in Piazza del “Campo” resounds a solemn trampling of hooves, but much more ordered and calm than the frenetic pace of the horses of the “contrade”. And here with an elegant gait, in a whirlwind of red-blue plumes, the squad of the Carabinieri makes its appearance, and after a round of inspection, they head towards the most illustrious officers  of the Palio.

Here, after a moving and distinguished salute to the authorities, the military begin their grandiose choreography proceeding initially with an elegant trot and then, launched at the sign of the commander, in a quick and courtly gallop with the ceremonial swords unsheathed to the light of the sun under the general ovations of the crowd ready to acclaim them for the incredible tribute that the “Arma of Carabinieri” offers to the city of Siena for the second consecutive year.

La Carica del drappello dei Carabinieri a cavallo Siena 16 Agosto 2017

The Charge is a whirlwind of swords between the swarms of shriekers underlined by the cry “Pastrengo!” In memory of the heroic battle of Pastrengo of April 30, 1848. Since 2009, an officer does not mount in Piazza. The return to tradition, coupled with the innovation given by the presence of a woman commander, is to represent a further tribute to the city of Siena and its wonderful celebration, further strengthening the extraordinary bond between the Weapon and the city of Palio. It is worth remembering that the carabinieri have an important part in the choreography of the day with the horse carriage in high mountain, which is cleaned in Piazza with an inspection tour that, as said, in galloping. “La Nazione”
