Each year the last Sunday of July in Passignano on the Trasimeno lake there is an exciting and original event: the “Palio delle barche” (Palio of the boats).
The Palio of the Boats is a historical commemoration of the last act of hostility between the noble families of the Baglioni and Oddi of Perugia: a bloody battle that, in 1945, has seen Passignano at the center of military operations. In this battle a small army of Oddi family had to flee from the castle, boats on their shoulders, chased by the militias of the Baglioni and Della Corgna families.
The Palio of the boats takes place in three phases: the first and third in the water, the second on the land along the narrow streets of the old town of Passignano.
During the week of the Palio, the four districts of the village organize taverns “typical restaurants” where the visitors can taste recipes from the Trasimeno region and where they are entertainer with shows and historical representations in costume.
