THE PINACOTECA OF VOLTERRA
Even a short visit to the Pinacoteca di Volterra will surprise you. Starting from the beautiful building where the works are kept: the Minucci-Solaini palace, perhaps the most beautiful of the few Renaissance palaces in the city, and then continuing with splendid paintings of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
It will be possible to admire significant works by Taddeo di Bartolo and Luca Signorelli and of course the splendid Deposizione of Rosso Fiorentino. It will be possible to deepen understanding and knowledge of their works, every time full of new ideas and interpretations.
The guided tour of the Pinacoteca lasts about one hour. You also can visit the Ecomuseo dell’alabastro which is also in the Palazzo Minucci-Solaini, in one of the very ancient towers: two fundamental places to understand the most significant aspects of the history of Volterra
The guided tour usually lasts about two hours and takes place in the morning, usually from 10 to 12 or in the afternoon, from 15 onwards, before sunset.
Special requests are always welcome.
Special rates are provided for school trips and “senior age” groups.
