Lucignano is a small medieval village at the top of a hill on the border between the ancient possessions of Florence, Arezzo, Siena and Perugia, which made it strategically important since ancient times.
The village, with the plant in concentric rings, has an important artistic, landscape and food and wine heritage.
Also Lucignano, like all the other frontier lands, has undergone various cultural influences.
The artists who made the works of art preserved today in the Municipal Museum are predominantly Sienese, including the imposing Golden Tree, also called Tree of Love.A jewel of medieval jewelery, before which young lovers once declared their eternal love.
In the central Piazza del Tribunale the buildings that hit the visitors are the church of San Francesco, the Collegiate Church of San Michele Arcangelo and the Palazzo Comunale, which houses the museum.

The architectural appearance of Lucignano is quite strange, species for the considerable difference between the buildings of the two parts of the historic center. Entering in fact from Porta San Giusto extend two streets: via Roma which is directed to the left and via Matteotti which instead turn toward the right. The first is traditionally known as "Poor Alley", as formerly resided therein families more humble, and is distinguished by the presence of buildings in medieval times by the small size. The second one is called "Rich Alley" and here lived a time the noble families of the village, as witnessed by the elegant buildings in renaissance style.
