I am interested in the development of urban cultures in Italian cities during the Middle Ages. Particularly, the city of Siena during the rule of the Nove (1286-1355). During that period the urban landscape of the city was transformed by a merchant government that imbued streets, fountains, piazzas, even the hospital and cathedral with themes dominated by their vision of the Buongoverno.
