Overview
More
The Madonna del Parto is one of the greatest works of Piero del-la Francesca. Standing in the middle of a canopy made of pre-cious brocade, Our pregnant Lady reveals herself to the faithful. Two angels hold the tent canopy open allowing the faithful to admire the Virgin, majestic and solemn yet humble at the same time. The fresco was made around the middle of the ffteenth century in the church of Santa Maria di Momentana which no longer exists. It has been in this museum since 1992, right in the middle of a educational trail introducing visitors to the life and works of Piero della Francesca.

While viewing the Legend of the True Cross at Arezzo's Basilica di San Francesco, we found a reference to another Piero della Francesca masterpiece, his Madonna del Parto. We decided to explore the artist's "route" in the countryside of Arezzo, and it has become a...More

The fresco is great and the video on the artist is good. But other than that there is not much to see. The entrance price is a bit steep at 6.5E per adult but they don't get that many visitors or grants and maintaining the...More

I saw this in the fall and it is a nice little spot to see. Very small but well done for a short break.

The fresco is in a small room, dark, that lightens up when you enter it. We were the only visitors, the museum is in a very small village not far from Sansepolcro, the town where Piero della Francesca was born. The Madonna is standing, with...More

Let's face it, Monterchi may be a charming and historic little Tuscan town, but there's only one reason why you are there: to see the Madonna del Parto. And she doesn't disappoint. The immense, calming stillness of the work is breathtaking. Take time to savour....More
