Pisa – Il Gioco del Ponte – The Game of the Bridge – 24th of June 2017

The Game of the Bridge is the most famous event, held on the 24th of June, and divides the city of Pisa into two parts: Tramontana (to the right of the Arno) and Mezzogiorno (to the left). The two adversaries push a heavy cart placed on rails in the centre of Ponte di Mezzo (the game takes its name from this) from either end. The winner is the team that manages to push back the other one and become the ruler of the bridge.

The game of Bridge will take place at night with a parade at 8.00 pm and cart fights begin at 9.30 pm approximately
