Sansepolcro Civic Museum

Here you can see the Piero della Francesca masterpieces.

Sansepolcro
The ancient building of the Residenza dei Conservatori was home to the town hall until the 1960s and today is the location of the Civic Museum.
 
The present building is the result of a series of architectural modifications started in the fourteenth century when Galeotto Malatesta, Lord of Rimini, ruled Sansepolcro.
 

In the Sala dell'Udienza of the Civic Museum we find the great fresco of the Resurrection by Piero della Francesca: the work, considered among the most representative of the artist, is the human and spiritual expression of the rebirth of Christ, with the figure of the Savior which dominates the scene with strenght and solemnity.
