Next on Norman’s list was Italy. Norman had heard all about The Palio di Siena. The Palio Siena is a horse race that is held twice each year, on July 2 and August 16, in Siena, Italy. Ten horses and riders, bareback dressed in the appropriate colours, representing ten of the seventeen city wards race for the title. Norman could not believe that the jockeys ride bareback; the race circles the Piazza del Campo, and usually lasts no more than 90 seconds.
