Neighborhood: Historic Center
Overview

The Loggia dates from the early 15th Century and is a perfect example of the transition from late Gothic to Renaissance architecture. Sano di Matteo was responsible for the original design and the upper floors were added much later. The original section of the building is the one that merits attention, perfectly inserted in the medieval city. The pillars that support the three main arches are decorated with statues of saints by Vecchietta and Antonio Federighi. The latter also produced the marble bench in the right portico. On either side of the loggia are the entrances to the Piazza del Campo.
