Urbino ~ Le Marche

Have you ever been to Urbino? If you answer no to this question, then you should feel guilty because you are missing a whole dimension of Italian civilization. ~Carlo Bo

“Those who come to Urbino without knowing its history and its importance find themselves before an extraordinary surprise, or indeed, a miracle.  In the midst of the spectacle of the hills along which the access roads run, an enchanted palace, left untouched by the passing of time, appears suddenly.   It is a leap back in time, a dive into the purity and freedom of the soul.”

The palace idealized by Carlo Bo is that of Federico da Montefeltro, the lord of the city during the Renaissance.
