Museo Civico, Sansepolcro

3.9
#2 of 8 in Things to do in Sansepolcro
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.

    A small but well laid out Museum. We went to see the McCurry exhibition, which was excellent. However, the museum is well worth a visit especially because of the famous Resurrection of Pietro della Fr...  more »

    A Museum without neither head nor tail at an exorbitant price. This is a typical "italianata" for Duped tourists. There is only one (well, let's say half past) has a great attraction, the name of Piero della Francesca is obviously a red herring, and then they ask you for 8 euros to get in, Because for eight euros cannot be seen just a small fresco and a polyptych, beautiful as long as you want, what do you do diligent art experts in Sansepolcro? Organize a space of ten rooms and a dark upper floor and filled with works of very low value taken somewhere, "artists" stuff almost strangers. All threw there, exactly, without a logical thread, cloth and some vestment, ugly sculptures, in a mixture a few just to get people cha at least they saw anything. Or rather, seen?? The works of Piero are visible ... up to a point ... Those who have "studied" the lighting of the halls of this "Museum" should be summarily fired! A bad experience that has been happily teaching us to be wary of these museucoli sprouting like mushrooms and just to make some cash with stock funds.

    Very nice. Pity that the highlight by Piero della Francesca is being restored. Still a must for art lovers

  • 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.

  • The Museum has preserved two of the most famous works of Piero della Francesca: the fresco of the resurrection and the altarpiece of the Madonna della misericordia.
