One of the most famous interpreters of the contemporary
art is born in Cittā di Castello
Alberto Burri was born in Cittā di
Castello in 1915 and begins to paint in the field
of imprisonment of Hereford, in Texas, where he had been
conducted by the allies in 1943. Returned in Italy he devotes completely
to the art, and from the years '50s are held shows devoted to him practically
all over the world: Chicago, New York, Sao Paulo, Paris, Milan, Turin, Pittsburgh,
San Francisco. From 1981 in Cittā di Castello on wish of the same Burri
have been created two places as temples of its art, which furnish a resume of
the contemporary art. It's about 257 representative works of his whole artistic
path divided among Palazzo Albizzini and the buildings of the Ex
Seccatoi del tabacco.
