Tartuca contrada Museum

Exploring the many layers of history, traditions, and symbolism, we visited the museum of the Tartuca contrada. Each of Siena’s 17 contrade have a museum dedicated to their neighbourhood’s proud traditions and regalia from previous Palio races, an amazing network of micro-communities within the city center, which makes Siena a truly unique place.

The participation of our Greek students during the Fall 2020 semester is thanks to the collaboration of the Stavros-Niarchos Foundation in supporting our SNF-SART scholarships.
