This race seems to be very unique. On the Roman lines. And the crowd gathered is a fantastic sight indeed! Would have missed this absolutely fantastic post except for the link in Sadhya's guestbook!

Vania, these are some of the best pictures I have seen on photoblog. They are full of the excitement and passion of the Palio. The shots of the crowd are amazing. Congratulations on a fabulous series.
