Siena

 

Siena is a mid-sized city located in Tuscany, about 43 mi (70 km) south of Florence.

It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its historic center, which is little changed from its appearance when Siena was a wealthy and independent medieval city-state, before its final defeat by Florence.

Today’s Siena is famous for its cuisine, art, museums, and overall medieval cityscape. It is also known its unique horse race, Il Palio, conducted twice each year in the summer.

Over the centuries, Siena has had a rich tradition of arts and artists. A number of well-known works of Renaissance and High Renaissance art still remain in galleries and churches.

The Church of San Domenico contains art by Guido da Siena, dating to mid-13th century.

Duccio's Maestà, which was commissioned by the City of Siena in 1308, was instrumental in leading Italian painting away from the hieratic representations of Byzantine art and directing it towards more direct presentations of reality.

Pinacoteca Nazionale.is home to Madonna and Child with Saints polyptych, painted between 1311 and 1318.
