Ambrogio Lorenzetti: the poet of Siena

A great event for the city of Siena dedicating a great exhibition to Ambrogio Lorenzetti. The journey to the great event that will open next October 22, began with a trip to the restoration of some works. Visitors were able to assist closely to the works of the frescoes of the Sienese artist.

Some of these will be on show and are a unique opportunity to deepen one of the most fascinating but less known artistic experiences of the Siena artistic school of the fourteenth century.

Ambrogio Lorenzetti: inside the restoration

A program aimed at spreading the work of an artist who has remained so far unknown to the general public, but who has painted works such as the fresco in the Public Palace of Siena, "Allegories and the Effects of Good and Bad Government".

Siena retains almost all the works of Lorenzetti who worked steadily in the city. The spaces dedicated to the exhibition are those of the ancient hospital of Santa Maria della Scala with two works: the polyptych of St. Peter in Castelvecchio and "The Majesty and Stories of San Galgano". Other restoration sites have been opened since last year: the church of San Francesco, for the restoration of the frescoes of the ancient chapter room of the Franciscan Friars of Siena, and the church of Sant'Agostino, for the cycle of stories of Santa Caterina and Credo articles.

Towards the mystery of Ambrogio Lorenzetti

The aim of the exhibition is to explore the painterly evolution of the artist, so some of the most important museums in the world have been involved, who will carry out the works in their possession to make the journey even richer and more complete.

The exhibition will take place from October 22, 2017 to January 21, 2018 at Santa Maria della Scala and is considered very important, as will be exhibited, among others, works from some of the most important museums in the world such as the National Gallery Of four Clarisse), the Louvre (Madonna with the Child), the Uffizi (St. Nicholas Stories) etc.
