During this tour we will discover the life and works of a revolutionary and visionary son of Siena. The daring luminism and the very personal taste of color allowed him to give a fresh ideas to mannerism. We will visit the Pinacoteca where we will observe the versatility of the genius and the innovations in the technique of the marble work; the drafts of the inlay mosaics of the most beautiful floor in the world. Also in the Pinacoteca we will see the first version of San Michele which was rejected by the Carmelites. Later for a comparison we will go to San Niccolò al Carmine to observe how over the years composition and spatiality are more important than “pure” drawing. We will conclude our visit at the Church of San Martino in the homonymous third where a splendid Nativity will reveal all the inner disagreements of this complex artist. In the period of uncovering the floor of the Duomo in the area of the dome the tour will be structured differently. It will start from the Duomo where we will see the floors, the frescoes in the apse area and the sculptor Beccafumi in the “Angeli Cerofori”; we will then go to the oratory of San Bernardino concluding our tour at San Niccolò al Carmine.
