Lonely Planet review
Pistoia's Gothic Palazzo Communale is strung with works by Tuscan artists from the 13th to 20th centuries. Don't miss Bernardino di Antonio Detti's Madonna della Pergola (1498) with its modern treatment of St James, the Madonna and Baby Jesus; spot the mosquito on Jesus' arm.
Nearby, savour the rich portico of Ospedale del Ceppo , with its detailed 16th-century polychrome terracotta frieze by Giovanni della Robbia. Dramatically contrasting with the ancient facade is La Luna nel Pozzo (The Moon in the Well; 1999), a striking iron sculpture smart on the spot in front of the old hospital where a well once stood.
