Easy to find, almost in the center of the city. Pleasant welcome. Big and beautiful, the Burri's mirror... Loved it!

Alberto Burri was an artist who created gigantic works. He began painting in 1945. His work evolved through many experimental stages. In this museum, housed in old tobacco drying barns, some of his largest works are displayed, created from 1970 - 1983. The rooms are gigantic, as are the works. All abstract, he uses different materials as well as different methods of creating color. It is difficult to describe his work. It is of monumental proportions and unique in design.

We thoroughly enjoyed walking through these cavernous rooms and taking in the work as it was meant to be shown.

Go see this work. You will be glad you did. You will never see the work, or anything like it elsewhere. You can't easily move this stuff around for traveling exhibits.

We "only" visited the old tobacco drying factory, but it was worth the visit. You sometimes get full of all the medival history in Umbria and Tuscany, and its good to see that Cittá di Castello is preserving this important modern artist. The old tobacco drying place is worth a visit in itself.

Start in the Palazzo Albizzini and then continue to the former tobacco factory to see large scale work, evokes scale of Anselm Kiefer.

Personally we found his work only moderately interesting... Our kids loved the size and abstractness of some of the pieces, really got them thinking and using their imaginations!
