Welcome to the Palio
The oldest horse race in the world turns the Italian city of Siena into a high-stakes battleground of strategy, intrigue and simmering machismo. In the eye of the storm stand the jockeys – loved if they claim victory or violently despised if they fall short.
PALIO follows legendary maestro
Gigi Bruschelli, winner of 13 races and master of the intrigues that surround the Palio, and Giovanni Atzeni, his former protégé and handsome young rival driven by a fearless passion to become number one.
This heart-racing new documentary
exposes the notoriously closed world of this ancient race and the larger-than-life personalities of those involved in an epic and cinematic tale of Italian life in microcosm.

PALIO will be released nation-wide on November 6, 2015.
