The Best Arezzo and
“Arezzo would be enough to glorify Italy” G.Carducci
Arezzo, is a city of Etruscan origin, as evidenced by the findings of the bronze statue of the Chimera, the various elements of the structures present in the lower part of the church of San Francesco and in looking at many objects that can be seen in the Archaeological Museum “Gaio Cilnio Mecenate”. In the medieval period, Guido Monaco, the creator of modern musical notes, lived at the Cittadella del Colle del Pionta, where the Old Cathedral once stood. In the churches in Arezzo we admire works of great artists, to mention only a few: in the Bacci Chapel of San Francesco the famous frescoes in the cycle of the “Legend of the True Cross” by Piero della Francesca, in the Church of San Domenico the painted Cross by Cimabue, in the Pieve di Santa Maria the Polyptych by Pietro Lorenzetti and in the Cathedral the stained glass windows by Guillaume de Marcillat. Giorgio Vasari, one of the most important artists of the sixteenth century, was born in Arezzo and left many works of art in his city; his works can be seen in the Churches, museums and in his home, Casa Vasari. This is just an “amouse bouche” to let you savor what Arezzo can offer you.
I invite you to visit the city to be able to appreciate its art and more, its traditions and why not …… good food!!
