Hunting and fishing with the Duke: Urbania Court and Renaissance art excellence

Hunting and fishing with the Duke: Urbania Court and Renaissance art excellence
During the tour of Urbania, as we admire all of its beauties, we propose an unusual visit to Barco Ducale of Urbino.
Duke Federico’s park was dedicated to migratory fauna hunt and connected to the Ducal Palace by a mile of river, which knights and ladies navigated with a boat.
Piero Della Francesca will tell us about the Triumphs.

Montefeltro Renaissance Sights - the project
The story begins by chance with a casual close-up on a series of pictures of Montefeltro's landscapes, which looked a lot like some of the landscapes painted by Piero della Francesca in the Diptych of the Duchess and Duke of Urbino exposed at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.

"Those who become enamoured with the practice of the art without having previously applied to the diligent study of the scientific part of it are like mariners who board a ship without a rudder or compass and therefore cannot be certain of arriving at the whished-for port.
