Donatello in Tuscany
A miracle in Torrita di Siena countryside
“To find a Donatello in the countryside is almost a miracle”: these are the words of one of the most reliable art historian Tomaso Montanari, referring to the rare possibility of finding a work by the Florentine sculptor Donatello in the countryside.
In Torrita di Siena, a village located in the heart of the Valdichiana, this happened.
In the Church of Sante Flora e Lucilla which is located in the central Piazza Matteotti, there is a lunette made by the artist himself in 1400. A treasure of inestimable value jealously guarded by the community and which we invite you to admire with our tour.
A qualified guide will accompany you in the discovery of this town rich in history, which has been a bulwark of the Republic of Siena for centuries. The guide will reveal you all the secrets that this lunette has been carrying with it for more than 600 years.
What it includes
- Guided visit of Torrita di Siena
- Visit of the Lunetta by Donatello
- Typical Tuscan lunch or dinner
