Singing Under the Tower

Some contradaioli sing together under the Torre del Mangia, just they entered to Piazza del Campo. Singing is one of the most important and irreplaceable elements of the great patrimony of the Contrada. It is an intangible heritage of great importance because it has a profound communicative and aggregating value. The “contradaioli” (members of the contrada) since when were a child, have heard and, as a consequence, learned, the popular songs performed by adults and their parents.
