On 2 March 2019 enjoy the show of Palio delle Contrade, one of the oldest local event of Bormio.
The Palio is the healthy competition between the 5 Districts of Bormio, the “sections” of the town are marked by a color and a symbol.
During the Palio delle Contrade, each district seeks to recruit as many people as possible, for cross country ski race competition.
It’s not a sporting event but a smart event made by people with a big spirit of participation.
Those who participate wearing vintage clothing, with the colors of their faction, or by using ancient wood skis, earn more points that at the end will determine the final placement.
The competition has ski races for Bocia (children) and Granc (adults).
