I spent 3 days in siena during the Palio of the 2nd of july.
I wasn’t there to photograph the horse race in itself, I was more interested in the lifestyle involved in those 3 days, people getting together for dinner on the historical streets, food and mainly good wine.
I have been very lucky as 2 of the Contrada involved in the race(Giraffa and Pantera) gave me hospitality for lunch and dinner. It has been a great chance to see the real Palio and hopefully to take some nice photos.
Here are 2 images of the Winner, Contrada del Drago.The first one, jut after the end of the race and the second one, a few hours later.
I’ll edit the rest in the next days.
Thanks a lot to Francesco Meucci, Paolo Brogi e Lello Giannaneschi.
