"Il Palio di Sienna" stitched by Margie

Picture the jockeys racing around the Piazza del Campo in Sienna, as they have done since medieval times, dressed in the bright colours of their contrade [districts], the crowd with banners aloft.

Or, picture if you like the crowd at the football on Saturday afternoon – some things never change!
