A race lasting just a few minutes to recount a thousand years of life in Siena and its contrade. A few minutes to feel the intensity and strength of an ancient bond between man and horse. A few minutes to exult and weep. A few minutes and the Palio will remain one of the most thrilling memories of your life.
A year of alliances and vendettas. And then, on 2 July and 16 August, the Palio decides the city's fate.
