Palazzo Squarcialupi – Santa Maria della Scala
The Sant'Ansano hall is located on the fourth level of the Santa Maria della Scala Museum Complex in Piazza del Duomo 1. Its construction is the result of the thirteenth-century expansion of Santa Maria della Scala to the rear of the Sant'Ansano ditch, when the hospital faced the need for expansion by including some houses on the hillside. The aisle was in fact created from the second floor of a civil residence. The historic Sant'Ansano hall can accommodate up to 50 people seated. The space is a charming environment thanks to the attentive recovery of the niches found during the works of renovation carried out recently. It is precisely the niches which reveal the use of the hall as a hospital aisle since the end of the sixteenth century.
