I ardently follow the Palio and (my son is baptized into one of the Siena's contrade--"districts") so this is a bit of a family obsession. Our shelves groan with books about this famed Sienese race and its miraculously beautiful host city.
John Hunt's visually gorgeous volume must now take pride of place among them. It's handsome, very colorful, and (even by itself) gives readers a great feel for the passion and the energy behind the races--by contrada members and officials, as well as the jockeys.
And for those of you who have perchance seen Hunt's and Cosima Spender's wonderful movie "Palio", this is the mother of all tie-in products. Much of the thematic content from the movie is repeated here, along with a gazillion additional photos spanning a number of recent palios.
Highly recommended. Well done, John and team!!
