Siena: Chronicles of a Medieval Commune

Renowned for its merchants, artists, and saints, the city of Siena was one of the major centers of Medieval and Renaissance culture. Based in large part on contemporary sources and shot on location in Tuscany, this program focuses on the civic and religious institutions of the city - the municipal government, the cathedral, the Hospital of the Scala - and captures Sienese life and society during its golden age.
