Longines, the top partner and event's official timekeeper and watch, has a long tradition in terms of watches for equestrian sports. It was in 1878 when they developed their first chronograph bearing the engraving of a jockey and his horse. Much loved by riders and fans of horses it was used by most of the sports courts. In 1926 Longines participated as a timekeeper at the Official International Horse Show in Geneva. Since then the Swiss brand has constantly improved its timekeeping and data handling thanks to the development of modern technologies.

The protagonist, in addition to the knights, is the extraordinary setting of Piazza di Siena - Olympic site in candidacy for Rome 2024 - founded on the initiative of Prince Marcantonio IV Borghese, who, at the end of the 18th century, requested the construction of an area to remember Piazza del Campo, the place where the Palio di Siena used to take place.
