The famous painting of the Ideal City is the starting point for the exhibition presented by Lorenza Mochi Onori and Vittoria Garibaldi currently open at the National Gallery of the Marches in Urbino.



The Ideal City exhibition
About 50 paintings, sculptures, wood engravings, drawings and illustrated manuscripts are on exhibit at the Palazzo Ducale in Urbino, which acts as both container and architectural content for the exhibition, offering a precious key to discovery of the Renaissance in the city of Urbino and the Montefeltro area.

The exhibition is a voyage of discovery of the work of famous artists such as Domenico Veneziano, Sassetta, Piero della Francesca, Fra’ Carnevale, Leon Battista Alberti, Francesco di Giorgio, Luca Signorelli, Jacopo de Barbari, Mantegna, Perugino, Bramante and Raffaello as well as famous works which have not yet been attributed.

The exhibition starts with the famous late fifteenth-century painting of The Ideal City, with its perfect perspective cited by curators Lorenza Mochi Onori and Vittoria Garibaldi as a synthesis of the mathematical, philosophical speculation, architecture and engineering and fifteenth-century Renaissance civilisation.
