A fascination that has lasted 400 years
The building that houses "Chiusarelli" is an old monastery built in the late thirteenth century near the oldest and highest of the city of Siena, also known as the district of Castelsenio. The building, from the beginning, it was used as a convent of the Discalced Carmelite Friars, a mendicant order founded a few years earlier in the Holy Land. During more than seven centuries, the building was still inhabited by the Discalced Carmelite Friars except for some historical parenthesis, when, before the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, then Napoleon Bonaparte and later the newly formed Kingdom of Italy in 1860 have stolen property the Friars. Whenever, as a result of these deletions state, the Fathers regained the convent to continue players to play the religious activity.
Next to the convent is the church of St. Nicholas of the twelfth century. Inside there are important works of art including paintings by Alessandro Casolani, Francesco Vanni and the image of Our Lady of Mantellini, the object of veneration, performed by a thirteenth-century painter called Master of Saints Cosmas and Damian. The large painting of Domenico Beccafumi showing St. Michael driving out the rebellious angels is considered one of the masterpieces of the painter and hits for the complex setting with the vigorous figure of the angel at the center that connects the upper level to the lower one and the expressive use of strong contrasts between light and shadow. Under this altar, located at the side, there is also the tomb and the body of Blessed Franco Lippi, a Carmelite saint died in the late thirteenth century, still well-known and known in the city for the originality of his personal story of life and conversion. The saint has long lived and died in one of the cells of the convent currently recovered as guest room. On the side of the church are the traces of a porch, now it crashed, leading to the monastery.
The building, as a whole, has maintained the same architectural layout original and even within it, there are direct evidence of this approach. In particular, the first floor is the place where the Friars Choir came together to pray. It is a wooden choir of the end of 500, the original, with a marble altar and an altarpiece representing the Blessed Franco Lippi in contemplation.
As soon as you enter the "Chiusarelli" you have access in the cloister that for over 400 years has the same architectural feature.
In the open space on the rear of the convent, currently used as a parking lot for guests, it was found the entrance to the famous "well of Diana." It is a very deep and very old, whose excavation was started in the twelfth century by the then inhabitants of the area for groped to find the water of the mythical river of Diana. The frantic search for water has been one of the main fixations of Siena in medieval times. In fact, the limited availability of this resource has also strongly influenced the historical destiny of the city and that's why the City of Siena and its citizens have sought this precious resource over the centuries. No longer any doubt historians have identified in this excavation pit that was to lead to draw water from the underground river of the legendary Diana. In this episode also it mentions Dante's Divine Comedy and, not surprisingly, the street where opens its doors "the Cloister del Carmine" is called Via della Diana.
