SIENA, ITALY’S PALAZZO PUBBLICO

A perfect example is The Portrait of Our Lady in the Hall of the Great Council.

On the surface the subject appears to be entirely religious, but that is not the case.

There is a block of text in which Mary warns the government to act with humility and justice.

It says, “I will answer your prayers, but if the strong molest the weak, your prayers will go unheeded.”

Down the hall is a giant fresco that dates to 1335 and makes the same point in a different way. It’s titled “the Effects of Good and Bad Government”.

There are two matching scenes. One is Siena under good government – the other under bad government. Good government is represented by a wise old man dressed in the colors of Siena. Next to him are the cardinal virtues – Prudence, Temperance, Justice, and Fortitude. Prudence is always at the head of the line because it is the virtue that regulates all the others. Above are Faith, Hope and Charity. In the properly governed city, life is peaceful, work is progressing.

Bad government is marked by the dishonesty of public officials, pride, greed, mismanagement, and the power of special interests.
