The¬†Palio¬†di Siena¬†known locally simply as¬†Il Palio) is a¬†horse race¬†that is held twice each year, on 2 July and 16 August, in¬†Siena, Italy. Ten horses and riders, bareback and dressed in the appropriate colours, represent ten of the seventeen¬†contrade, or city wards. The Palio held on 2 July is named Palio di Provenzano, in honour of the¬†Madonna of Provenzano, a Marian devotion particular to Siena which developed around an icon from the Terzo Camollia. The Palio held on 16 August is named Palio dell’Assunta, in honour of the¬†Assumption of Mary. ( From Wikipedia )
