The project was realized by the architect Bernardo called Rossellino, under the guidance of the great humanist Leon Battista Alberti. In just 3 years a complex of beautiful and harmonious buildings was built: the Cathedral, the papal residence or Palazzo Piccolomini, the Municipality, and the charming central square.
