Tour della Bottega

A tour of an authentic workshop where all kinds of paintings are recreated on frescoes, wood panel, and canvas, they are all hand made by expert artisans using the traditional materials and paints from the Renaissance period. <br><br>It's a special way to spend some time learning how the old masters used to paint to a point where one enters into the mind of the author, masters like Leonardo, Raffaello, and Michelangelo.

We had big expectations of both the spaces (Foundation and Tobacco drying halls). Burri was a surprise and at the start we enjoyed the discovery of an artist we didn't know. But after a while it get's too much of the same what doesn't do good for the artist. I can understand he is one of Italy's most important contemporary artists, but the accumulation of works with the same artistic idiom get's boring. To say that the tobacco drying halls are impressive.

Wow, we loved both museums. This is a must go. We could not have done both galleries in one day, overload.

There are two spaces that comprise this museum: one is in a former tobacco-drying warehouse (an easy walk from the centre of town), the scale of which is beyond enormous. This is where his later work is exhibited, along with his graphics. The earlier work is in a Palazzo right on one of the town squares. I had known Burri’s name but wasn’t familiar with the work. He was a medical doctor who spent 2 years during WW II in Texas as a POW, which is where he started to paint. When he came back to Italy he gave up medicine and became an artist full time. I found the work to be strong, powerful, and elegant. Seeing it in that space (the warehouse) was revelatory. I think some of the black paintings would hold their own against Rothko, and his graphics are superb. If you are at all interested in 20th C Italian art, don’t miss this.

There are two fabulous Alberto Burri museums in Citta di Castello. His earlier works are displayed in the Palazzo Albizzini and his later works in Ex Seccatoi del Tabacco, and industrial complex originally used to dry tobacco. The Burri collection warrants a day's visit.

Saw the ads at Perugia Airport, so decided to go to visit. The ex-Seccatoi is a stupendous space, kind of like the Tate Modern's Turbine Hall, only 5 times over. Great for showing Burri's work. Ashamed to say I'd not heard of him, but feeling much better informed now, especially after seeing his work in the context of his contemporaries and those he inspired and was inspired by. Must go home and try my blowtorch on some clingfilm
