Full description
With this 1.5-hour guided tour of the Civic Museum you will discover one of the major Italy museums. Inside Palazzo Pubblico an expert guide will explain you the frescoes, created by some of the most important 14th-century artists, such as Simone Martini, Duccio di Buoninsegna and Ambrogio Lorenzetti. Within the exhibitions, you will see artistic works from the 14th up to the 19th century, offering you a complete overview of the evolution of Sienese art. Your guide will lead you to discover the heart of Sienese Art — the Civic Museum inside the Sienese town hall. Once inside the Civic Museum you will be introduced to the beautiful 19th-century frescoes in the first room of the museum, dedicated to Italy’s Risorgimento (unification), and you'll discover the medieval World Map Room, with the masterpieces of Simone Martini, la Maestà, and il Guidoriccio da Fogliano. Finishing your visit in the Peace Room, where you'll find the famous depiction of Siena, and the Allegory of Good and Bad Government, by Ambrogio Lorenzetti, one of the first examples of civil art. The subject of the painting is not religious, but rather represents Utopia in Siena and explains the difference between the good and the bad government.

guida molto esperta e preparata.le due ore insieme sono trascorse piacevolmente tra il racconto di riferimenti storici e curiosità sulla storia di Siena.Palazzo Civico mi ha sorpreso per la ricchezza delle collezioni da visitare in un contesto urbano incantevole ma pur sempre a misura d'uomo.
