“A compelling tale of Italian community, machismo, bribery and ambition.” Financial TimesThe Greatest Story Never Told PALIO is a richly illustrated celebration of the legendary horse race which has united the people of Siena for centuries. Showcasing never before seen imagery from specially commissioned photography, together with epic film stills and rare archival images, PALIO is Italy in microcosm. This authoritative volume explains not only the civic ritualism and rich symbolism of this extraordinary event, but how “the game” is played both on and off the racetrack. For the “assassin” jockeys and the passionate Sienese – il Palio e vita – the Palio is life. PALIO is the official publication launched in conjunction with the release of award-winning film, PALIO, directed by Cosima Spender, written by John Hunt and Cosima Spender, and produced by John Hunt and James Gay-Rees.
