Palazzo Coli Bizzarrini CIT155

Description

OPEN SPACE “LE GROTTESCHE” Historical Description The Open Space “Le Grottesche” is located on the first floor of the historical residence Palazzo Francesconi, later Coli Bizzarrini. The Palace was built in 1520. The design and the first stages of its construction are attributed to one of the most famous architects of the Renaissance, Baldassarre Peruzzi, whilst the complete realization is due to Pietro Cutaneo, his best pupil. The status of "unfinished" that this building boasts, is an element of uniqueness that makes it special and enigmatic. It is however considered among the notable works of art that adorn the city of Siena. Even the paintings are by tradition attributed to Baldassarre Peruzzi. In the chapel is found the work representing the story of Jonah, whose characters are often used by Peruzzi. The painting "Grottesche" is classical work of Baldassarre’s brush for fine design, simplicity and harmony of invention. It was made in 1527 in memory of Nero Domus Aurea in Roma. In 1906 the Coli Bizzarrini family bought the property and enhanced it through a long and rigorous restoration of magnificent interiors filled with frescoes and precious decorations that covered a period of more than six centuries. Less than 200 meters away is the famous Piazza del Campo, while the building overlooks magnificent "Gardens La Lizza."
