Siena, restorations in Piccolomini Library

Were completed restorations in the Piccolomini Library, adjacent to the Cathedral. From April 2015, visitors can once again admire the works that have been recently restored: an important fresco, some windows and some decorations. Obviously many other frescoes of the Library were restored in other times.
