Notes

Summary:
The verses inscribed beneath this part of the fresco indicate that is intended to represent government founded on justice. The ideas on which it is based are derived from medieval texts such as the Latin constitution of Siena written in 1262. These documents drew upon the work of Roman political theorists. The central value emphasized good government must strive to preserve perpetual peace. "Peace being the central virtue of civic life, the question that chiefly preoccupies these writers is how to ensure that numerous enemies are conquered. Among her foes the most obvious is of course said to be guerra or war. But the most insidious--to which they usually devote far more attention--is generally described as discordia or civic disunity."
