From Anghiari to Sansepolcro: the places of an old battle
An itinerary to discover the Battle of Anghiari, made famous by Leonardo da Vinci's lost painting

On June 29, 1440, the splendid village of Anghiari in the Tuscan Valtiberina was the setting of a famous battle between Milanese and Florentine peoples: to celebrate the memory of the Republic of Florence’s victory, a large painting was commissioned to Leonardo da Vinci. It was supposed to be hanged on a wall in the Salone del Cinquecento of Palazzo Vecchio, in Florence.

A pleasant journey through art, history and green landscapes is an opportunity to learn about the loss of this artwork and discover, by walking or cycling, the places that have been the background of the famous battle.
