Historical re-enactment and Podestà Investiture

Prior to the Donkey race, on Saturday evening, each borough competes in costumes during the historical re-enactment. A theatrical performance by more than 400 actors who will take turns in groups, presenting historical and legendary episodes that marked the life of the medieval population. Victory is awarded by a jury of experts, who assess the clothing, the historical period in which the performance is set, and the commitment of the boroughsmen. An emotion that visitors will remember for a long time.
The Podestà Investiture will be held during the historical re-enactment. The ceremony is an invitation to savor the Donkey Palio and the Medieval Parade. The Borghi Albesi (Boroughs of Alba), the Gruppo Storico Città di Alba (Historical Group of the City of Alba), and the Gruppo Sbandieratori Città di Alba (Flag-Waving Group of the City of Alba) will bring to life an episode dating back to the year 1275, in which the Capitano del Popolo, Alfonso Falletti, appoints the Knight Raimondo Artusio as Podestà of the free Municipality of Alba, in defense against the mercenaries from Asti who threaten the city’s walls. The Podestà thus takes an oath and receives the symbols of power from the Capitano del Popolo, including the keys to the city. The Boroughs, after the act of submission, request permission to hold the Donkey Palio, and the Podestà, in granting his approval, orders the festivities to begin.

Piazza Risorgimento

12051 Alba CN

Piazza Risorgimento

It is the ancient mediaeval Platea and Roman Forum from which the public streets used to depart: Via principale, Via al Tanaro, Via al San Domenico, Via al Vescovado, Via al Convento di San Francesco, overlooked by the tall Negri tower demolished in 1866. This square represents the historical heart of the city where, among other things, the Duomo stands out, quite imposing with its structure reminiscent of its late-Gothic origins: on the outside visitors can admire the tall bell tower and, inside, various paintings, sculptures and bas-reliefs.
