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.

If you are on the PIero della Francesca trail, Burri makes it all fit. The early works are exactly that, but there is some mature Burri here that make it worth the visit. But the ex-tobacco drying sheds are even better...
