Finding inspiration in a Renaissance painter's Italian hometown
SANSEPOLCRO, Italy — Sansepolcro, in the far northeast corner of Tuscany, can't match Florence and Siena for culture. It isn't even on the top of a hill like San Gimignano. It has, English writer Aldous Huxley noted, "some fine Renaissance palaces; a not very interesting church, and the best painting in the world" — the "Resurrection," completed around 1470 by Sansepolcro native Piero della Francesca.
