This week, the Contrada (or ward) of the Lupa (She Wolf) won the Palio di Siena, the famous horse race held twice each year in Siena.

With the same horse and the same jockey, the Lupa was once again the first ward to cross the finish line in the same year.

This hasn’t happened since 1933!

Locally, they call this a cappotto meaning a mantle, as in a sleeveless coat.
