The wealth of Sienaís museums can offer the 14th century dreams of Duccio di Boninsegna and the rich Sienese school that developed from him; and then the works of Iacopo della Quercia, Francesco di Giorgio, Beccafumi, Sodoma. Riches that belong to the entire territory.
Colours, crowd, celebratory shouts, a piazza covered with tufa, ten horses ridden bareback in a race that lasts only a few seconds.
For those who are seeing it for the first time, this is the Palio. For the Sienese it is life, passion, history. Itís the miracle of a game that becomes real life, where there is a place for joy and pain, courage and intrigue, loyalty and betrayal.
A mediaeval inheritance, which, on 2nd July and 16th August deeply affects Siena life and is always a catharsis.
