GUIDED TOUR OF The sparkle of sienese art

The sparkle of sienese art


Art lovers won't want to miss this tour!

When we talk about Sienese art, we must focus our attention on the beginning of the 14th century, the period when Siena enjoyed its greatest prestige, and great artists endeavored to create marvelous paintings distinguished by gleaming, glittering gold backgrounds.

I’ll guide you through a section of Siena’s National Painting Gallery, which contains one of the largest collections of gold-ground artworks; next, we’ll head to the Museum of the Opera del Duomo, where we’ll admire Duccio di Buoninsegna’s grand Maestà, as well as splendid pieces of Sienese goldsmithing work;

and finally, we’ll conclude our tour in the subterranean rooms of the ancient Santa Maria della Scala Hospital, where part of the institution’s vast Treasury is on display, along with reliquaries from Constantinople.
