Strange Encounters

The horse Pathos de Ozieri, after the race of a trial of the Palio di Siena, is coming back from Piazza del Campo followed by the groom and the inhabitants of Dragon. Just a few steps to his stall in the Vicolo di Pallaccorda alley, the horse comes across a group of nuns curiously enjoyed to meet a so strange presence, while they are going around the streets of Siena. The horse itself seems to be wondering who are all those ladies in white.
