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...More

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.

A great exhibition. It worths the trip from everywhere in the world. Where Italy is leading the culture. Visit also the Essiccatoi del tabacco where the big works of Burri are on display.
