195th Arno race full of emotions

195th Arno race full of emotions

Exactly one week after the 195th edition of the Corsa dell’Arno, the emotion is still vivid.
Like every 25th of April since 1827, this year too Florence woke up preparing for an appointment with its history. Even the heavy clouds that had occupied the vault of the Florentine sky for days had to surrender, letting the sun illuminate the luxuriant green that covers the circuit of the Visarno ready to welcome the fury of the hooves of the galloping horses.
Thousands of enthusiasts and the simple curious who crowded the stands and the areas close to the track since the early hours of the afternoon. A colorful crowd that did not fail to enthusiastically adhere to that dress code that has characterized this event for years now. And here then, next to the jockeys' catwalk with their splendid thoroughbreds, another parade attracted the attention and curiosity of those present: that of the hats and headdresses that adorned the heads of girls and women of all ages. win the title of "Most Beautiful Hat". A riot of creative flair and skilled craftsmanship.
A race, also of solidarity, in which we participate, such as Rossomenta and Consorzio del Cappello di Firenze, alongside the Corri la Vita Association since its debut and which, in the success of this year's edition, renews the passion that we put into our work and allows us to look to the future with renewed enthusiasm.
