This year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the influx of foreigners and Italians to the cities of art was lower. For the first time Siena offers us again in the autumn 2020 the opportunity to admire a unique work of its kind, an extraordinary floor, made of 56 inlays according to the technique of marble mosaic inlay and graffito executed by the most renowned artists of a period that embraces about 175 years of artistic history of the city, from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance.

According to Giorgio Vasari it was "the most beautiful ..., great and magnificent ... that had ever been done"
