Summary: “The great panel, finished, now dominates on the High Altar of the cathedral, in Siena, my beloved homeland, the city of the white and black shields which seem eternal. A great procession and a heavenly music have accompanied it through the streets of the city, and clerics, and perfumes, and clouds of incense. I, Duccio, son of Buoninsegna, with all my family and pupils, followed it among the multitude, weeping for the pride of having painted it in such a way.” The precious short tale on the Majesty of Duccio di Buoninsegna is a fantastic crossing over the territories of Medieval Art and Spirituality of Siena. And conceals a secrtet message.
