Palazzo dei Priori, Volterra

On 12 March 1383 the fresco of the Annunciation between the patron saints of Volterra was commissioned from Jacopo di Cione and Niccolò di Pietro Gerini for the council chamber in the Palazzo dei Priori, Volterra. The work was completed on 15 November of the same year.

The Council Room is completely frescoed: however, of the original decoration only an Annunciation survives, while all the other frescoes were made in 1881.
