Città di Castello differs from all other towns in Umbria because it retains a typically Tuscan urban structure, such as vast flat areas, large squares and harmoniously distributed noble palaces. Among these stands out Palazzo Vitelli which houses an important civic collection, including a standard painted by the young Raphael. This great artistic genius painted other works in the city but only copies remain. The great local painter, internationally renowned, Alberto Burri donated his collection to the inhabitants of Città di Castello, who keep it in the homes of the Lords who once ruled them. The “Tifernati” (local inhabitants) love their traditions and pass them on: the school of Umbrian cloth is a testimony to this. The other treasure that the city offers is that of Canoscio, an early Christian liturgical ornament in silver housed in the Diocesan Museum next to the Cathedral, a treasure trove of Mannerism. In summer the city is animated by national and international events such as the Festival delle Nazioni which hosts orchestras from all over the world.
