Watch the Palio of Siena August 16 LIVE (online streaming)

palio siena

The August 16 Palio actually begins early in the morning in Siena when each contrada (city ward) starts preparing for the race, including pre-race flag-throwing and parades in each ward, and the mounting of the jockeys etc.

The actual race begins at 7 p.m. when the Palio — an tapestry that becomes the winner’s trophy — is displayed above the Piazza del Campo where the race is run.

That’ will be 12 p.m. noon in Texas.

If you are as Palio-crazy as we are, follow the live video stream of the race at SienaTV here.

For background on the race and its historical and cultural significance, check out this post.
