Città di Castello is an unique place in Umbria and there is no similar, thanks to many features that differentiate it from the main cities of the region. There is almost no trace of its medieval past, darkened by the shine and by the fasts of the Renaissance.

The ancient Tifernum Tiberinum reaches the apex of its greatness when, beginning from the second halves the '400, the dominion of the Vitelli removed every richness to the rival families, earning the right to govern the whole territory.

They rose then four buildings of family; artists of the calibre of Signorelli, Vasari, Rafael and Rosso Fiorentino satisfied the idea of greatness and magnificence that populated the imaginary of the family Vitelli. Among so many suburbs and fortitudes, Città di Castello shows all of its grace, the lightness and the nobility showing proud its difference and its vanity.
