Cloister of Torri
Among all the cloisters of the municipality of Sovicille, surely that of Torri is the most beautiful. Elaborated as elegant, it is enclosed in a square of 11 meters per side whose perimeter is crossed by arches distributed on several levels and built in different eras. The first arch, which gives the cloister its unique character, was built with two-colored stone that recalls black and white, the symbol of Siena. The pillars are of various shapes (circular, hexagonal and square) and have carved representations that recall biblical episodes and symbols of local corporations, but also more simply flora and fauna. The second arch is instead built in brick and the third, which supports the roof above the second level of flooring, is made of wood.
