The Palio di Siena is one of the most famous horse races in Italy and is held twice each year, on July 2 and August 16. The origins of this race are medieval, and the first modern Palio took place is 1656. The race takes place with ten horses and riders, bareback and dressed in the appropriate colors representing ten of the seventeen contrade, or city wards – the riders circle three times around the Piazza del Campo, one of the symbols of Siena. The race is preceded by a magnificent pageant, the Corteo Storico, precedes the race, which includes (among many others) Alfieri, flag-wavers, in medieval costumes.
