Along the northern side of the possessions of the Salimbeni family was the ancient church of San Donato, founded more than a century the fortified residence of the family. The church was originally presented as a building with a single nave with apsidal termination. The transformation into a museum and conference hall for special events, has brought to light what remains of the old building: the stones they are made of the perimeter walls and the very limited size of the building, are a clear statement of fact 'Romanesque church, rebuilt in 1236 already. The church was a place of worship until the early nineteenth century when, following the Napoleonic suppression was traformata in storage for carriages only in 1925, became the property Monte Paschi, was carried out the renovation of the building and destined to the Archive of the bank. The access from Via Montanini was closed with a monumental fountain created by sculptor Fulvio Corsini. Only in the seventies it was decided the transformation of the former church in conference hall and art gallery, intervention by architect Pierluigi Spadolini. In 2011 he set up a new exhibition based on chronological criteria, in order to offer the visitor an organic vision of Sienese art.
