Palio siena

The Contrada della tartuca (tortoise) has won the Palio dell'Assunta (the Palio of the Assumption) yesterday 16 August 2010. Herewith is the official site of the Palio di Siena.

The girls of the populace of the tartuca, the "tartuchine", are noted for their colorful festivities to celebrate their victory (and they have conquered the palio also in July 2009). As the senesi say, "fortunati i maschietti", "fortunate the boys"!

Herewith is a slideshow of the race.
