Arezzo

Overview

Introduction

Many of the scenes from Roberto Benigni's Oscar-winning film La Vita e Bella (Life Is Beautiful) were filmed in charming Arezzo, Italy.

The churches and their works of art are what keep this Tuscan hill town on the map: the Basilica San Francesco with Piero della Francesca's magnificent fresco cycle; the Church of San Domenico and Cimabue's 13th-century Crucifixion; and the Romanesque Santa Maria della Pieve with its bell tower—an emblem for the city—that has 40 windows.

Arezzo also has several fine museums, among them the Museo Archeologico (located in an old monastery overlooking the remains of a Roman ampitheater), and the home of architect and artist Vasari.
