CITTÀ DI CASTELLO

Città di Castello rises a low hill in the upper Tiber's valley.

It was founded by Umbri with the name of Tiferno and passed to Rome with the battle of Sentino of the 295 a.C knowing a period of well-being and economic development.
With the end of the Roman Empire it was completly destroyed the Goths leadedi Totila in VI sec. and, reconstructed by bishop Florido, it became Castrum Felicitatis under the Longobards' domination.
In the Middle Ages it took its modern name and became one of the most important "Comuni" of the region. Evidence of this power surely are the two splendid palaces of the Priori and Podestà, works by the architect Angelo da Orvieto. The Duomo, erected in the XI century where once rose a Roman temple, has been changed later assuming a Renaissance aspect.
The Pinacoteca Comunale, keeps works by Raffaello, Signorelli and Domenico Ghirlandaio.
Città di Castello, due to its geographic position in the region and its dialetto, differs from the other cities of Umbria.
