Siena prepares for Il Palio, Italy’s legendary horse race

The people of Siena prepare for Italy’s most hotly anticipated horse race, known as Il Palio. Each year local ‘contrada’ groups, representing different areas of the city, enter a horse and jockey into a competition, with the hope of waving their flags as champions at the end. The 2013 Palio takes place on 2 July and 16 August
