Bagno di Romagna - Sansepolcro


Bagno di Romagna - Sansepolcro: 41 km

Sansepolcro rises on the bottom of the valley in an flattened amphitheatre crossed by the Ti-ber river. Walking across the historical centre, surrounded by the walls, one can discover, besides pretty shops, that the scenic urban plan has never changed in the run of centuries. The geometric and regular city plan is dominated by the outline of tower-hoses and bell-towers; straight roads meet the narrow medieval lanes often decorated by roof-gardens. Roads and squares are crowned by im-posing aristocratic buildings, coloured according to the Tuscan taste. Side roads were formed by rows of fine bourgeoisie houses. The charming city plan is characterised by sandstone and brick buildings.
Many monuments and churches are in town: for example, the Cathedral blends Roman-esque and Gothic styles. Sansepolcro is the famous hometown of Piero della Francesca (1412-1492), one of the most important Renaissance artists, but not only. He mastered perspective and right here he knew by intuition the secrets of space and light translating them into his paintings. The Museo Civico (town museum) documents the artistic production in town with a rich and homoge-nous gathering. Some masterpieces by Piero are on exhibition close to the works by Signorelli, Santi di Tito, Bassano, Matteo di Giovanni, Rosso Fiorentino, Raffaellino del Colle, Della Robbia. Piero's works are: the fresco called "Resurrezione", the polyptich entitled "Misericordia" and fragments of a fresco representing "S. Giuliano" and "S. Lodovico da Tolosa".
