TOWER OF THE PEOPLE audience room

In the second decade of 1500, the hall on Tower’s ground floor was furnished for the Art of Notaries with a headboard decorated with candelabra and inlay works with ancient letters and figures. This is according to the model presented on November 7th 1515 by Lorenzo di Paolo, a Florentine timber master and resident in Assisi. The wooden furniture has been completely lost. However, a fresco dating back to the final decades of X century has been partly preserved. It represents the Assumption of the Virgin Mary in the presence of the Patron Saints Giovanni Evangelista and Rufino, Clare and Francis. From here you enter a courtyard leading to the back of the Temple of Minerva.
