Piero della Francesca. The seduction of perspective
Civic Museum of Sansepolcro
Sansepolcro (Ar) - Until 6 January 2019

Refined and innovative painter, master of abacus, Euclidean surveyor, Archimedes scholar, Piero della Francesca is considered one of the most emblematic artists of the Italian Renaissance. Concurrently with the presentation of the restoration of his fresco Resurrezione di Cristo at the Museo Civico di Sansepolcro, an exhibition path has just been inaugurated that allows us to deepen the immense scientific culture of the artist.

The exhibition project, developed around De prospectiva pingendi (the first illustrated treatise on perspective) makes us understand how humanist painting finds its most natural basis in science. In fact, it is a collection of reproductions of drawings, perspective models, scientific instruments, videos and mathematical research that the artist himself has applied to his painting. Studies, calculations and projects left behind by artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and Albrecht Durer, until the mid-sixteenth century.
