Siena - Before the palio - One of the marshalls?

 Not sure what this role this guy had - one of the course marshalls?  A referee?  Or he may be an official representative of one of the contrade - 17 of them, with one horse for each in the race.

Whatever he is Peter, he's got his eye on you smile
Tom Wilson: So he has!
Quelle foule pour les voir.
Tom Wilson: Oh, oui - il peut y en avoir entre 50 000 et 60 000!
Good shot, though!! Whatever he's doing!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Elizabeth.

They're all so incredibly clad Tom. I wonder if this sort of thing still occurs?
Tom Wilson: Oh yes, it is a twice a year event - but the pandemic has stopped it this year.

With all the pageantry, he must be a royal. He still don't know how to drive a horse and must be lead around.
Tom Wilson: He is a knight and that is his page smile It's what pages do smile I'm only guessing!
They could do a series of Playmobil figures like this lot and the kids would love them!
Tom Wilson: Absolutely!

The tension is building.
Tom Wilson: By the time the race actually started I think the tension had deflated somewhat!
Love how you caught this fellow's eye.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Care.
Just looked back at the whole series. They are good captures of the times. Very enjoyable.
Tom Wilson: And thanks again smile
