About the Event
Tucked away in the foothills of the Apennines in Central Italy, Urbino seems an unlikely site for what is probably the most perfect surviving example of a Renaissance palace. However, at the end of the fifteenth century Urbino was famed throughout Europe as a centre of architectural and artistic splendour. Craftsmen came from all over Europe to decorate the magnificent palace and to build an ideal Renaissance city.
