There is always a bit of confusion when people speak about this palace. In this case, "il Magnifico" (the Magnificent) was not Lorenzo de' Medici as those who are not aware of Siena's history generally believe (and quite logically). He was Pandolfo Petrucci, who was as similar to Lorenzo as a saxophone to a guitar. The palace dates from the first decade of the 16th Century and is almost a paradigm of the Renaissance palace and, as such, is worth seeing.
