EXCLUSIVE WEBINAR | “Inside the Palio”
Presented by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero

Twice a year, on July 2 and August 16, the city of Siena transforms its main medieval square into an arena of unbridled fury. Ten bareback horses and their respective jockeys race three laps at breakneck speed around a dirt-covered piazza that is filled with fifty-thousand people! That is the Palio, and for the past seven centuries, winning it has been the most important objective of every Sienese citizen. Join Dr. Rocky for this exclusive webinar where he will unpack the history, traditions, and meaning of this great event and explain just how much needs to happen in order to obtain victory!

The webinar will include a 45-minute lecture followed by 15-minutes of Q&A.
