Because he asked to go there. After Galileo put forth the idea that the earth revolved around the sun, there was a strong reaction from the Church. Up until the time of G…alileo, Aristotle's idea of geocentrism, the idea that the sun and other heavenly bodies revolved around the earth, was firmly held. It was seen as blasphemy to offer that heliocentrism, the idea that the sun was the center around which the earth and other planets revolved, was the manner in which the heavens worked. How dare he. Galileo was taken before Church authorities and told to abjure regarding heliocentrism (which essentially means "cease and desist") and that he was going to prison and that none of his work would be allowed to be published. The prison sentence was reduced to house arrest, and arrangements were made for Galileo to stay with the Grand Duke near the Trinita dei Monti. He remained there for a short while but requested to be sent to stay with the Archbishop of Siena, Ascanio Piccolomini, with whom he was friends. This request was granted, and he spent time there before being permitted to return to Arcetri (the location of his villa), near Florence. There he remained for the rest of his days.

Her feast day is April 30, but she died on April 29, 1380 in Rome. The people of Siena wanted her body back in Siena, but they had to get it past the Roman soldiers, so the…y only took her head and put it in a bag. The people prayed her that the Roman soldiers wouldn't see them, but they did. When they opened up the bag, there were hundreds of rose petals inside it instead of her head. When the people got back to Siena, inside the bag was her head and her right finger. No one knows how the finger got there. Right now her head and finger are still displayed at the Chapel of Saint Catherine in Siena.
She lived in Siena, Italy.
