Museo Civico, Sansepolcro

(360+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum Museum
View what some claim to be the best painting in the world at Museo Civico, a small museum that proves an unexpected gem. Though size of the structure itself does not impress much, the museum's collection of artwork, displayed through 10 halls, is exceptional in scope. Here, you can view "The Resurrection," a fresco by Piero della Francesca that writer Aldous Huxley named the world's greatest painting in 1925. Tour the site and spend some time with Piero's paintings, as well as works from Matteo di Giovanni, Raffaellino del Colle, and more.

  • Civic Museum of Piero della Francesca: 2 pieces of frescoes and the resurrection (under restoration). 2 works by Caravaggio. Around 5 paintings on more than 40 ... a little bit to give the Museum to Piero della Francesca.

  • A nice Museum, where I could see a small but interesting view on Luca Pacioli, Leonardo and Piero della Francesca.
