An imaginary thread winds through the hills of Siena and its countryside. A guiding thread connecting the art of the fifteenth century with the marvels of nature and the tradition of good food and wine.

Following this thread, marked off by the various sites of the Sienese Museum, unexpected discoveries can be made, and unforeseen encounters amidst the elegance of gold-ground painting and the refinement of wooden sculpures. The same emotions aroused by the poetry of the landscape, steeped in history and culture like the villages for which this art was created.

Places described by artist and writers, loved by those who live there and those who have the good fortune to encounter them, recounted in four intineraries following in the tracks of travelers who have gone before.
