SOME HISTORICAL The "Career", as it is traditionally called the race, is a competition between Contradas (each of the seventeen historical divisions within the medieval walls of the city) in the form of a carousel horse of medieval origin.
The history of the Palio of Siena is very detailed and complex and has its roots in an age still more remote. In Italian cities of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries it was the custom to organize horse racing, both as a public spectacle, both as a competition between the various horse farms owned by the noble citizens. These origins ideally represent the various pageants that still take place in Italy.
The Palio race is named, not only in Siena, for the prize: the Palio from the Latin pallium (woolen cloak) which was usually a cloth of very fine cloth that was used for different purposes. The race, one of the oldest in the world, takes place in the central square of Siena, Piazza del Campo, unique for its original shell shape and renowned throughout the world for its beauty and architectural integrity. For an old convention the square and the Palazzo Pubblico do not belong to any Contrada.
