The volume collects the results of the first historical-archaeological investigations on the castle of Montemassi, a very famous structure in its iconography, but not yet substantially detailed. The core of the research is to clarify some of the main historiographical questions on the castles of central Italy: the genesis and the characteristics of the phenomenon of fortification, the nature of any phases of occupation of the site, the relationship between the castle and the overall paintings territorial settlements, the role played by the noble powers and the local community until the seventeenth century. Particular attention is paid to the built structures, read in their constituent materials, in the transformation phases and in finding the levels of use and functional distribution of the still existing environments. On the methodological level, the AA. they were able to make use of topographic prospecting, documentary research, stratigraphic investigations of deposits and elevations. Furthermore, Montemassi makes it possible to compare the acquisitions of archaeological and documentary investigations with the results of the stylistic and iconographic analysis of an extraordinary source, such as the fresco in the Palazzo Pubblico of Siena depicting Guidoriccio da Fogliano at the siege of Montemassi.
