Nested among the hills of central Italy is a castle out of a fairytale, the living legacy of a visionary ruler of the Renaissance, the charismatic Duke Federico da Montefeltro.
Raphael, Bramante, Piero Della Francesca and more thrived at the court of Urbino, finding a nexus of arts, culture and science.
The Duke was a man of the sword, a diplomat, a patron of the arts and his dream was to turn Urbino into a capital of innovation, a hub for the best minds of the era.
He committed his life, his conquests, all of his resources into the construction of the Ideal City. Who is Federico, the man whose portrait with his wife beloved Battista Sforza became the symbol of Renaissance itself?
