Il Palio Di Siena

This event is held in July and again in August each year in Siena. Representatives of the city's 17 contrade (districts) parade in Renaissance costumes before participating in a dangerous horserace around the Piazza del Campo. The winning district is awarded the palio, a banner depicting the Virgin Mary.


Originariamente il termine Yankee veniva usato per indicare gli immigranti olandesi che si erano stabiliti nel nord-est degli Stati Uniti. In seguito, venne ad indicare un qualsiasi abitante del nord-est, cosicché durante la Guerra di Secessione Yankee divenne il soprannome dato dai Sudisti ai Nordisti. Ancora oggi c'è chi negli stati del sud usa il termine in tono dispregiativo per riferirsi agli abitanti del nord.
