It’s organized by Marlane Agriesti Miriello, the founding director of the Il Campo/Cucina Cooking School in nearby Radicondoli, which explains why the food and drink she provides her guests is exceptional. The feasting includes group lunches in city trattorias, catered dinners with wines and views of the Piazza del Campo, and a uniquely memorable al fresco dinner banquet cooked and served by contrada members. “Excitement will be in the air,” says the charming Miriello. “We will dine with a contrada that is running in the race, so there is a lot of singing and fanfare until at least midnight, making it a very special night.”
For those with time restrictions who’d prefer to view just one day’s action, Il Campo/Cucina can also provide limited one-day tickets to the individual viewings of the Prove and Palio.
