Monterchi-kunstroute

  • Monterchi-kunstroute

    Vanuit Arezzo loopt de Piero della Francesca-route 25 km richting het oosten naar het kleine Monterchi, op de grens met Umbrië. Hier wordt in een voormalig schoolgebouw de indrukwekkende Madonna del Parto, de Zwangere Madonna, van de kunstenaar tentoongesteld. Recentelijk streed Arezzo met Monterchi om de tentoonstelling van het meesterwerk, maar deze strijd werd gewonnen door Monterchi.

    De Madonna, hoogzwanger en pijnlijdend, heeft de voorkant van haar jurk open geknoopt, terwijl erboven twee engelen de ingang van de tent waar ze in staat omhooghouden. Het verhaal gaat dat Piero della Francesca in 1469 terugkwam naar Monterchi om eerbetoon te bewijzen aan zijn moeder, die uit het dorp kwam. Nadat deze poëtische Renaissance-kunstenaar in Urbino werkte voor de Hertogen van Montefeltro, bracht hij zijn laatste jaren in Sansepolcro door. Het is toepasselijk dat deze revolutionaire kunstenaar daar overleed op 12 oktober 1492, de dag waarop de Nieuwe Wereld werd ontdekt. (Vanuit Monterchi kun je verder doorrijden naar Sansepolcro of rechtstreeks terugkeren naar Arezzo).
