Biblioteca Piccolomini

Library Siena, Italy

Visit Biblioteca Piccolomini

The Piccolomini Library is a monumental setting of the cathedral of Siena. Located along the left aisle, before the transept, it was built in 1492 by the Archbishop of Siena, cardinal Francesco Piccolomini Todeschini (later Pope Pius III) to guard the rich library heritage collected by his uncle Pope Pius II. Between 1502 and 1507 it was completely frescoed by Pinturicchio and aids, among which were the Bolognese Amico Aspertini and the young Raffaello Sanzio.
