Città della Pieve

  • "Monumental crib": the Città della Pieve Monumental Crib is part of a thirty-year tradition. It was made for the first time in December 1967 by the Castello's Terziere (district of the city) and its collaborators to boost the age-old tradition of the Umbrian crib. Starting from that far tradition, thanks to the imagination and ability of skillful artisans, the crib of Città della Pieve became one of the most important Italian cribs as well as a destination of thousands of visitors each year. Set up in the Palazzo della Corgna's underground areas, the cribs makes the best of the inspiring renaissance spaces, stage for scenes inspired not only to Christ's life but also to the Old and to New Testament. The most relevant artwork is the "Nativity", an authentic tribute to the "Three Kings Adoration" at the Santa Maria dei Bianchi's Oratory, painted by Pietro Perugino, the oldest son of Città della Pieve.
