  1. Thank you Jane & Massimo – I’ve enjoyed this episode – I love the Palio and I get to watch it on TV every year – I did not know about the “third palio” – I also found the grammar part very useful – especially the “tutti” as subject part. Grazie!

  2. I went to see the Palio a few years ago: it was one of the most incredible experiences I’ve ever had. Like Massimo, says, sounds, colors, the excitement, all make you think you are back to another era. This episode brought back memories of that day… thanks!
