Here are the events happening in April in Siena:


One exhibition not to be missed is “In Campo la Balzana”, a free exhibition on the Historical Parade of the Palio di Siena through the municipal mounts. The exhibition will be held at the evocative spaces of the Magazzini del Sale, inside Palazzo Pubblico, from March 2nd to May 5th, 2024. The exhibition recounts the history of the Historical Parade of the Palio di Siena over the centuries. Following an initial chronological path, from the late fifteenth-century origins of the procession to the nineteenth century, the main focus of the exhibition will be on the municipal costumes used from 1904 to the present day, currently not visible to the public and only recently inventoried.

At the Santa Maria della Scala Museum , you can visit two exhibitions: The exhibition “Fausto Melotti. In Leggerezza. A Tribute to Italo Calvino” is dedicated to the friendship between the writer and the artist and will remain open until April 7th, 2024, at the Sixth Level of the complex. The exhibition path winds through 22 sculptures of various sizes and many drawings, embracing a period from 1935 to 1985. The exhibition in particular refers to the works that became images of Calvino’s books for the reissue of his writings in the Oscar Mondadori series, which took place in the 2000s.

The exhibition “Aleardo Paolucci: Between Pienza, Siena, and Rome on the Traces of Pius II” is a prestigious exhibition that celebrates the art of Aleardo Paolucci (1927-2013) through 54 works dedicated to Pope Pius II and will unfold through the art cities of Siena and Pienza to finally arrive in Rome.
