The National Picture Gallery of Siena
If you have decided to visit Siena, an obligatory stop for you is undoubtedly the Pinacoteca Nazionale , the most ample and evocative among the collections of paintings of both the ‘300 and the’ 400 Sienese.
The Pinacoteca is a real compendium of Sienese works of great importance that were collected starting from the end of the eighteenth century directly from ruined churches, convents now definitively suppressed, lay companies and many other locations to become a real artistic heritage that it was devolved, over the years, to the Accademia Gallery.
The actual museum was inaugurated only in 1.932 and over time has become a thematic exhibition of all the main styles that have been overlapped in Siena between time and traditions.
On the second floor, for example, you will find some of the most significant masterpieces by Duccio di Boninsegna in addition to the Lorenzetti brothers, Simone Martini and other 14th and 14th century Sienese artists such as Giovanni di Paolo and Sano di Pietro.
On the first floor we find Riccio , Marco Pino, Brescianino, Sodoma and then again Francesco Vanni, Bernardino Mei and Rutilio Manetti.
On the third floor you will find the wonderful Spannocchi-Piccolomini Collection with the magnificent San Girolamo by Albrecht Durer and La Natività by Lorenzo Lotto.
The Pinacoteca is a must in Siena and deserves all the time necessary to visit its historical and spiritual wonders.
