What Jeli did next.

Sienapalio

If you enjoy Barefoot in the Piazza you might want to find out what Jeli did next.

In the sequel (now in progress), Jeli is now in Siena where she’s causing a sensation at the local high school as the city’s first black school teacher. In this Chianti version of To Sir with Love, both teachers and students have to re-think their received definitions of black and British as Jeli tries to carve out a level of normality for life in school and out.

All this as the build-up to the famous Palio horse race reaches fever pitch.
