Arezzo

Why visit AREZZO?

Because the Oscar winner Roberto Benigni, in 1997, chose her to shoot part of the scenes of her cinematic masterpiece, "La Vita è bella".
Because in 1304 it gave birth to one of the very first poets, Francesco Petrarca, whose home can now be visited in part transformed into an academy.
Because in 1511 it gave birth to another illustrious person, the first biographer of the artists, as well as an artist himself, Giorgio Vasari, of whom it is possible to see the residence.
Because inside the Franciscan church, one of the greatest Italian Renaissance artists, Piero della Francesca, in the mid-fifteenth century, painted in the apse "The stories of the true cross", considered one of the most interesting Italian pictorial cycles, not only iconographically but iconologically too. Why visit Arezzo is an opportunity for gourmets who can eat the classic Chianina blood, derived from cows raised in the territory.
