Museo dell'Opera – Siena. Dipinti

Cinisello Balsamo

The Museo dell'Opera, established in 1869, is housed in the first three bays of the northern aisle of what was supposed to become the city's "New Cathedral". It is home to a series of absolute masterpieces of Tuscan painting stretching from the 13th and 14th century Primitives right up to the masters of the 17th century, but its core, its most valuable possession, consists without any doubt in the splendid Maestà and the superb stained-glass window, both from the Cathedral, made by Duccio di Buoninsegna between 1290 and 1311.
