Arte e cultura in Umbria

Art and culture

Artistic and cultural points of interest in Umbria

From Perugino to Alberto Burri, from Pinturicchio to Gerardo Dottori: Umbria has created a perfect marriage of art and culture that gave birth to many works that will remain in history and you can visit the many art galleries and museums of the region.

Not only that. Umbria and its territory, thanks to their charm, have over time been able to inspire the great poets and writers of all time: Virgilio, George Byron, Giosuè Carducci, Herman Hesse, and many others.

Bella Umbria offers places of interest in culture and art, with detailed information on times, places and collections to visit.
