Palio in Casole D’Elsa

While traveling trough one of Italy’s most beautiful provinces,  Tuscany, i have ended up in the little town of Casole D’Elsa, somewhere between Firenze and Siena. Where Siena is well known for it’s Palio, a tradition of horseracing dating from the middle-ages, Casole D’Elsa has its own version of this historic event which will take place on the 14th of july. Festivities started tonight with the presentation of the flag to be won by the victorious Contrada.
