Sansepolcro is a smallish town hidden away in the southeast corner of Tuscany. The easiest way to visit this interesting place is by train from Perugia, although there is also a bus from Arezzo.
Piero della Francesca (see previous post) was born and died in Sansepolcro and some of his paintings are on display in the civic museum. The town is also the birthplace of Matteo Cioni, who translated into Latin Piero della Francesca’s treatise on perspective.
In Sansepolcro there is a small park named after Piero della Francesca and a larger than life statue of him at the entrance.
