The Third Palio di Siena

Today we’ll talk about one of the most spectacular events in Italy: Il Palio di Siena.

Kane from England sent us a nice email a few days ago – in the email, Kane says “every year I go to Siena to see il Palio, and I feel it is one of the most spectacular medieval traditions in Italy. I also believe it would be a very interesting podcast for all your listeners…” — Right on, Kane.
