Palazzo Pubblico

The Communal Palace of Siena (said also Public Palace) is the palace built by the government of the Republic of Siena at the beginning of XIV century as seat of the Governo dei Nove (government of the nine) of the Tuscany city. It was built between 1298-1310. In this construction it is not used the stone, but the bricks, while the white elements are in marble. The wide façade of the palace reflects the different periods of construction. The windows, in the typical senese style, have three gothic bows. The central part ha one more floor in comparison to the two lateral wings. It has crenellated walls. At the center of the façade a great white disc carries the monogram of Christ. The communal Palace is still today the seat of the modern communal administration and accommodates the offices of the Mayor, some communal offices and other halls. At the first floor there is the civic Museum, that keeps several materpieces of the senese art, frescoes, paintings and sculptures.
