Siena, The Cathedral
6 April – 27 October, 2013
The Cathedral of Siena never ceases to amaze. Following the unveiling of the floor, which acquainted numerous Italian and foreign visitors with the intarsias designed by the ancient masters to depict a route of wisdom and of faith, the Cathedral now opens its door at the very peak of the building. As of 6 April, following lengthy restoration, visitors will be able to admire the ‘heavens’ of the Cathedral. A series of rooms that have never been open to the public, where no one has entered for centuries, except for the workmen directed by a succession of great architects who over the centuries left evidence in projects and sketches, at times drawn directly on the walls.
