Sienna, in the heart of Tuscany, where the people are passionate about their home turf, horses, dogs and religion and they make the best almond paste cookies in the world! We travelled through this town to glimpse the beautiful medieval construction and feel the heartbeat of a thriving tradition. For a long time the surrounding villages fought fiercly against each other to keep their territories. Eventually they quit the bloodshed and began to run horses to display their prowess as a community in the piazza. What a ride!
