"The Palio is a fierce battle and race all at the same time," began the Umbrella Man. "All year long the Palio is a fire banked. Then it stirs; it blazes!""Out come the horses. Away they go like a quiver of arrows all at once, around the town, once, twice, three times. That race course is a death trap. But the Palio has always been! That is a fine reason why it always will be. Time only sharpens the appetite." Giorgio was gripped with excitement. Now the thrill and glory of the Palio gave a powerful urgency and direction to his life. Now he knew where he was going.
