Just off Piazza del Campo, on one of the busiest streets of the historical center, Santa Maria della Scala houses the SMS Contemporanea in Palazzo delle Papesse. The ancient palace was built on a project by Renaissance architect Bernardo Rossellino on the second half of 15th Century. As years went by the interior building underwent many changes. Since 1998 the Center displays permanent collections and temporary exhibitions are held as well.
