Tuscany: Women of Siena

Meet the only female jockey that once run the Palio of Siena race

Siena, “Piazza del Campo”, the square where the “Palio of Siena” race takes place.

You may not believe it, but once happened that a female jockey called “La Diavola” (i.e. female devil) joined the competition and run the Palio! We met her and ask her how could she be included in such a masculine competition, when Feminism was even not a thing yet.

Then we learn something about another interesting woman born in Siena, St. Catherine. Let’s visit her house and discover something more about her spiritual and human path.
