From 8th May to 8th September, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. you can admire a new "Panorama on the City"
In the first half of the 1300s, in the period of greatest economic power, Siena was decided to expand its cathedral. A project that would have made the Cathedral of Siena one of the largest in the whole of Christianity but which, due to a series of calamities, never saw its fulfilment. The city was in fact hit by a serious economic crisis and by the black plague, which decimated the population of the city. From 8th May to 8th September 2019 the monumental complex of the Cathedral of Siena, dedicated to Santa Maria Assunta, invites you to contemplate new horizons with the ascent of the only testimony of what should have become the new Cathedral: the Facciatone with its horizons and its view of the city. This huge and high wall that, in the Sienese's intent, was supposed to be the façade of a New Cathedral, an architectural dream, overlooks the whole city.
