National Gallery of Umbria

Overview

Famous Umbrian and Italian painters from the thirteenth to the twentieth centuries are represented here in the halls of the National Gallery of Umbria, in central Perugia. The museum's itinerary covers two floors of the Palazzo dei Priori, built in Gothic style in 1293, to house the municipal government.

The elegant and richly-decorated windows conceal priceless masterpieces of Italian art history, from the medieval religious paintings by Duccio di Buoninsegna, Beato Angelico and Piero della Francesca, to the more recent twentieth-century compositions, informal art by Alberto Burri and abstract art by Piero Dorazio.

Perugia could not but dedicate large sections of its most famous museum to its two best-known artists, both born in the mid-fifteenth century: Pietro Vannucci, known as Il Perugino, and Bernardino di Betti, known as Pinturicchio.
