Sansepolcro, the city of the Palio

Founded in the 10th century by two pilgrims returning from the Holy Land, Sansepolcro quickly began to play an important role in the territory of the Alta Valtiberina, especially as the crossroads of the most important commercial routes of the time. It is, in fact, the most western point of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, in a location that can be considered the center of Italy.
But Sansepolcro is not only a commercial crossroads; like many of the Tuscan cities, it reached its peak during the Renaissance period. Its splendor under the family Malatesta, and later with the Medici, is still present in the city with its wall and the fortress.
Piero della Francesca (1420-1492) its illustrious citizen, developed the way to paint by using perspectives and geometric forms, indicating a radical change after years of Giotto's perspective. Don't miss the beautiful "Resurrection" at the Civic Museum, a banner site of the Biturgo city.
Another important figure of the city, but less well-known, was Luca Pacioli (1445-1517) whose mathematical studies on double entry would form the basis for current banking institutions.
Sansepolcro today still plays an important role in Valtiberina, always in a strategic location (250km from Rome, 120km from Florence, 90 km from the Riviera Romagnola, 30km from Arezzo), is a lively center for initiatives that evoke the ancient splendor of the city through events such as the "Palio della Balestra (cross-bow competition)" as part of "Biturgo September" accompanied by Cross-bow archers and Flag-wavers.
