Festa delle Donne !

DSC03176On 8th March as you very well know we celebrate all around the International Women’s Day.

Here in Siena you could see it everywhere after you entered history center of the city. In front of every shop were placed red shoes, the symbol of the “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes”. If you want to learn more about the action, you can enter website http://www.walkamileinhershoes.org/.

Another characteristic symbol of the day was mimosa flower. It is precisely this flower that is given here to women.

In Siena all women got also another present. The municipal museums of Siena (il Museo Civico and il Complesso museale S. Maria della Scala ) had free admission for all women. It was a small action by which the city council wanted to participate in the International Women’s Day.

However men could also find something interesting for themselves that day. Saturday was the big day of the eighth edition of “classica degli sterri”organized by RCS Sport / La Gazzetta dello Sport. The Strade Bianche by Limar, is the new race route from San Gimignano to Siena (with 50 km of roads divided into 10 segments) that finish on Piazza del Campo.

So it is obvious what a nice Saturday all citizen and tourists had in Siena!

What about of celebration the International Women’s Day in your country?
Wish you a nice and sunny week !!

  1. Excellent tradition! I’m so jealous of the women in Siena right now. If only we could convince Malaysian men to do the same… I hope after more celebrations of Women’s Day we will finally get to be as cherished by our society as you lucky ladies 🙂
