"La Terra in Piazza: An Interpretation of Palio of Siena" by Alan Dundes and Alessandro Falassi

Dundes and Falassi bring you into the heat of the tribal intra-neighborhood battles that take place twice a year on horseback in the main piazza of the medieval city of Siena. Filled with an extraordinary amount of information on the history of the Palio, it is an imperative guide for both those attending the race and those who simply want to delve deeper into this extraordinary event. Few social phenomena have greater meaning than the Palio does for the people of Siena, Italy – learn why in this great read.
