Palio Della Rana

palio della rana - fermignano

The Pro Loco Association of Fermignano (a town 10 km from Urbino) in order to let new generations experience the old ceremonies, restores the most original challenge, the race of frogs in wheelbarrow, naming it “Palio Della Rana”. Someone says that winning the Palio della Rana is a matter of luck because everything depends on the intentions of the frog to jump from the wheelbarrow. The race field is a path of about 170 meters along the main road. Every year only four competitors for each of the seven Fermignano districts can join the Palio Della Rana. During this event you will also find a craft market with many collectibles items dedicated to the Frog.
