Time/Date: 2nd April 2015, 19.15

Location/meeting point: Piazza del Campo

Palazzo Chigi Saracini is the home of the Accademia Musicale Chigiana. Those who enter can learn the history of some of the most prestigious aristocratic families of Siena through the artifacts held there. They will be able to admire one of the most important private collections, compiled by Galgano Saracini, who – with great taste and insight – put together between the end of the 18th and the first decades of the 19th centuries paintings, marble and terracotta statues, bas-reliefs, porcelain, chinoiserie, valuable creations in ivory, wood and semiprecious gems, as well as a ceramics collection from one of the most noted Italian schools of the 16th and 17th centuries, creating a unique art gallery.
