The Palio horse-race in Siena isn’t a matter of life or death… It’s much more important than that. Twice a year the Italian city of Siena goes crazy for the oldest horse race in the world: the Palio. Not your average race: strategy, bribery and corruption play as much a part as the skill of the riders.

‘Palio’ explores the thrilling story of a rivalry between a young ‘outsider’ keen to break in to a dangerous but lucrative game and the corrupt ‘insider’ who has manipulated the city of Siena for a decade. Their passionate and dramatic battle is an epic and cinematic tale of Italian life in microcosm.
