Art and culture, Cortona and the great painters
Etruscan and medieval land Cortona loves all signs of art and history.
The Etruscan museum of the city contains important archaeological finds that hailed as one of the most important museums of Etruscan studies in Italy.
Cortona also preserves historical and architectural evidence of the passage of St. Francesco, with the cells, the Convent of St. Francesco and St. Margherita.
Culturally important, there are the typical Leopoldine, old precious house farms made today beautiful cottages, holiday homes, bed & breakfast or restaurant.
Some important Italian painters born in Cortona have the resonant names of Luca Signorelli, Pietro da Cortona, and Gino Severini.
