Siena was all i thought it would be and more. Although it wasn’t love at first sight,sight, i quickly got attached to it. Its way of life, its dressing, its people, its food, and the way it interacted with me. One of the most interesting spaces i’ve ever been a part of was the Piazza il campo. its shear size, and richness in culture, its enclosed but yet open sensation, its texture and it sound all contributed to what made it a number one spot in my book. The Campo plays host to the palio thats held twice a year. It is an event that entales a house race between the different contradas that make up siena. All these contradas are of parculiar characteristics but are all similar, they are bodies of individuals with similar ties and or beliefs. The Palio in itself is a tourist magnet, drawing people from all over the world to witness and experience its magnificense. Even though they were a large number of tourist, i still felt like there was still some of Siena left for me.
