As I walked home Wednesday afternoon / early evening I came across a lot of Giraffaioli!
My landlord told me that Giraffa and Oca are good friends so they were invited over to Oca’s headquarters for a celebration. He said that the horse, Fedora, was there too but I obviously missed him. He said that they had painted his hooves gold!
I wonder when the poor horse gets to back to just being a horse. They have all been so crowded and hugged and kissed on it is a bit crazy! Fedora most of all, naturally!
I must say, though, that the red and white colors of Giraffa along with a grey horse and black and white Palio banner are really just lovely together!
It is also nice that the July and August Palio winners are buds!
