And do not forget to comment on Simone Martini's fresco of Guidoriccio da Fogliano and his Maestà of 1315 in the sala of the Mappamondo of the Palazzo Pubblico; and Duccio's Resa del castello di Giuncarico. You can forget about a very ill advised attempt to rival Pinturiccio's biblioteca Piccolominiana with a late 19th. century work depciting four large murals of episodes of the Risorgimento wedged between a grotesque ceiling curiously carrying inscriptions in Italian rather than Latin!

Is there any other book, websites... etc available that would give me information on what type of bricks they used for pavement and how big the area is??

doing a project and fairly stuck!!

Information on Elevations and Sections would be great aswell.

Thanks
