Palio del Recioto 2021

Due the period we are living  it is not confirmed the edition of this year of the Palio del Recioto 2021, it is the intention of the municipal administration to postpone the Palio del Recioto and Amarone to another time of year yet to be identified. Avoiding a second jump (the 2020 edition was cancelled due to Covid pandemic) that would compromise the future.
