Pinacoteca Comunale – city art gallery

  • Pinacoteca Comunale – city art gallery

    The Pinacoteca in Palazzo Minucci-Solaini houses valuable paintings from the Sienese and Florentine schools. While this is not a collection to compete with the best museums of Tuscan Old Masters, this is still a small but significant collection. Highlights include an Annunciation by Signorelli and Christ in Glory by Ghirlandaio. The most famous painting in the collection is a masterly Deposition from the Cross by Rosso Fiorentino (1495–1540).
    The Volterra Card is a city pass which includes the Pinacoteca along with all the key sites in Volterra. Alternatively, you can buy a joint ticket that includes access to the Pinacoteca and the neighbouring Alabaster Museum, the Ecomuseo dell’Alabastro. This museum shares and entrance so is conveniently seen at the same time.

    Address: Palazzo Minucci Solaini, Via dei Sarti 1, Volterra
