The Painted Barrels

In 2013 the competition for the most beautiful barrel was established. Each Rione has a barrel painted by a local artist and during the Palio a special jury decrees the winner.

In 2015 the award was named in memory of Gemma Detti, a well-known local artist who died in 2014.

The barrels are real works of art, more and more beautiful every year. They are kept for the whole year in the headquarters of the Bottai Committee, in Via Marsala, then each Rione takes its own to place it within its own territory, so the town of Manciano is currently littered with painted barrels.

For the first few years the theme was left free to the sensitivity and inspiration of each artist, then in 2017 it was decided to give a theme, which will vary from year to year.
