CITTÀ DI CASTELLO

 

Città di Castello is the main town in northern Umbria. During the XV and XVI centuries, the ruling Vitelli family gave an elegant character to its historical centre by building several Renaissance mansions and commissioning important artworks by famous artists.

 

The many museums contain a surpisingly rich artistic activity and we advise to visit at least one of these.

 

Home town of Alberto Burri, one of Italy's most famous contemporary artists, Città di Castello remembers his production in two museums dedicated to and set up by the artist himself.
