BSR artist Sinta Tantra at the Palio

We were delighted this week to see the unveiling of the drappellone for the Palio di Siena, which was designed and created by the BSR’s Bridget Riley Fellow Sinta Tantra. Traditionally the flag awarded to the winning contrada of the August Palio race is designed by a non-Italian artist, and this year Sinta was selected for this honour.

You can see an interview with Sinta on SIENAWEBTV here: https://youtu.be/3sg1zJW8pLY?t=19m42s (in Italian, from c. 20 minutes).
