Urbino, principal "art city" of Le Marche, Italy


Urbino boasted one of the most luminous courts in Europe during the 15 C. Duke Federico da Montefeltro gathered around him the greatest painters, poets and scholars of his day. The Ducal Palace of Urbino still houses many of the splendid works of art that were produced during this period and is an essential stop on any tour of Italy. At the Urbino court, Piero della Francesca wrote on the science of perspective and Francesco di Giorgio Martini wrote his Treatise on Architecture. The Book of the Courtier by Castiglione set standards of what characterised a modern European gentleman for centuries to come.
