Città della Pieve is an attractive, compact locality: its churches and the houses of its nobility were built of brick within a fairly short time span, from the late mediaeval period into the Renaissance, thus giving the town a happy unity of style. Pietro Vannucci, known as “Perugino“, was born in Città della Pieve and some of his works may be seen here. The monumental nativity scene has been a tradition in the area for many years now. It was begun in 1967 by the Terziere Castello and is now housed in the fascinating underground areas of Palazzo della Corgna. Apart from the main central nativity scene, there are other scenes depicting the life of Christ and various episodes from the Old and New TestamentsFrom that first edition, thanks to the skill and imagination of some able artisans, the nativity scene of Città della Pieve has become one of the major attractions in Italy with thousands of visitors each year.
