    Additional information

    • Citta di Castello is a working town built on the Tiber and tourists often pass it without a second glance. Those that do are missing out on a charming old centre (with some good bars and restaurants) and two art galleries, the Pinacoteca Comunale and the Burri Collection, located in two buildings around the town. Pinacoteca Comunale located in the Palazzo Vitelli alla Cannoniera, the town art gallery has works by Luca Signorelli (from Cortona) and Raphael. A member of the Vitelli family (who used to own the palazzo) is mentioned in Macchiavelli's ‘The Prince', the unfortunate mercenary captain is garrotted on the orders of Cesare Borgia. If you fancy a break from medieval and Renaissance art, the Burri collection is the ideal place. Alberto Burri was born in Città di Castello and was leading member of the Arte Povera movement, using cheap and recycled materials to create abstract works of art. The collection of 257 pieces is located in the Palazzo Albizzini in the town centre and in buildings previously used for tobacco drying, south of the town centre.
