Each of the four "contrada" (parts) of Castiglione del Lago (Castello, Prati, Molino, and Fontivegge) presents a float and gives battle for the winner's "palio" (banner). A procession in historical costume with flag wavers, representing the Court of Duke Ascania della Corgna, leads the procession of floats.

Coloriamo i Cieli
From 30 April to 3 May - Eleuteri Airport
"Colour the Skies" is a kite festival that takes place on the banks of Lake Trasimeno. Both experts and beginners take part, and visitors can enjoy the sight of the kites in a wonderful lakeside setting.
Hot-air balloons add even more colour to the sky. Nature trails, exhibitions, conferences, workshops and a chance to taste local produce make this event even more enjoyable. There will also be an exhibition of kites at Palazzo della Corgna.
