Crossing the medieval Piazza del Grano you will arrive at Palazzo Corboli Museum. Here you'll see works of art by the greatest Sienese artists from the 14th to the 16th century. Admire paintings by Ambrogio Lorenzetti, Matteo di Giovanni, Rutilio Manetti and precious wooden sculptures by Giovanni Pisano and Francesco di Valdambrino.

Decorated with frescoes by Sodoma and Signorelli, it represents an example of Renaissance painting in the Sienese land.
