Casole d’Elsa

Casole d’Elsa is a small village that stands on a hill overlooking the south-west part of the Val d’Elsa area.
The contrast between the Sienese quarterdeck where the “white and black” flag of the Republic still stands out, a fortress of the fourteenth-century that has become the Town Hall, and the installation of contemporary art that animates the base and the small déhor in front of it, is surprising.
But the interest of art lovers in Casole focuses on the Collegiata. There are remains of a fresco representing the Last Judgment of a painter of the Duccesque school and you can also admire the Cenotaph of Messer Porrina, a masterpiece of the fourteenth-century by Marco Romano. The Church “Collegiata” is also adorned with a remarkable work by Della Robbia family. Moreover, in the museum, there are important archaeological finds that are evidence of the protohistoric becoming of the Valley.

Also the Museum “Arte Viva” and the “Galleria del Novecento” have to be seen.
