A commemoration on the night of May 21

In the evening of 21 June 2018, Livorno back to be dyed in history with the race of the Giostra dell'Antenna in the waters of the New Dock, where the eight districts of the city with its rowers and editors give battle at conquest of the palio.

The first part of the race is to finish before the "path of braces", an exciting rowing race that the antenna located at the center of the perimeter of the game comes to the end of a rope toward the open sea.

The second part involves a test of strength and skill, speed and dexterity, where Duelists use the rope to climb on the antenna to compete for the red flag on top.

The Giostra dell'Antenna is a historic event that combines the tradition of the ancient Santa Giulia and Cup of the Palio of the Antenna. The link with the territory and with the Tuscan culture that the May 21 colors Livorno of enthusiasm from 19.30 to 01.30.
