There are two fabulous Alberto Burri museums in Citta di Castello. His earlier works are displayed in the Palazzo Albizzini and his later works in Ex Seccatoi del Tabacco, and industrial complex originally used to dry tobacco. The Burri collection warrants a day's visit.

A great exhibition. It worths the trip from everywhere in the world. Where Italy is leading the culture. Visit also the Essiccatoi del tabacco where the big works of Burri are on display.

Alberto Burri is one of the stars of Castello. This place shows a huge range of his work but is freezing cold in winter. Be aware that at the moment it is closed for renovation. Look out for the re opening. It's a great place...More
