Santa Marinella. Palio dell'Autopedale and Summer Parade of Allegorical Wagons

On the first Sunday of July in Santa Marinella, the 9 districts of the town compete in the original Palio dell’Autopedale, a special race for pedal cars made of wood and papier mache.

Beside the race, along 4 km of the coast of Santa Marinella on the Via Aurelia, allegorical floats parade with about 200 people.

The festival recalls the old Flower Festival of the 1950s which was celebrated when Santa Marinella was an important flower and nursery centre with a large production of flowers that were exported all over Europe.
