Abstract

The medieval city represented in Ambrogio Lorenzetti’s town hall frescos in Siena, Tuscany is an example of the city as a space in-between. Analyzed through the categories of Edward Soja’s “Thirdspace,” medieval urbanism reflects paradoxes of the relations of environment to urbanism to space. Historically the unfortunate but also necessary re-territorialization linked to the rise of the capital city and nation-state, meant that the imaginative achievement of medieval third space was not sustained, though related thirdspaces survive in altered form in the guise of landscape and region.
