Balconies of Piero della Francesca – Petrella Guidi

The landscapes that inspired the Renaissance painter, are hidden in the hills of Montefeltro. This is the thesis of some scholars who have identified the landscapes that inspired Piero della Francesca.

Itinerary of Petrella Guidi in Sant’Agata Feltria

The Baptism of Christ (London, National Gallery)
From this balcony you can see almost the entire landscape represented by Piero. In fact the site more faithful, from which to observe the whole, would be little further downstream, right on the river. Unfortunately it was not possible to set up the balcony in the floodplain due to the unpredictable flooding of the river.
