The Pigeons’ Palio has been organized in Amelia for some years.

It is a modified version of a tournament witnessed by the 1346 Statutes, which is centred around a horse race and a crossbow shot.

Every center of the target which is hit by the crossbow shot, makes a cage open and a pigeon is set free in the air.

The Palio is held in August and is played by the five "contrade" of Amelia: Collis, Crux Burgi, Posterola, Platea and Vallis.
