Thanks to the numerous artistic treasures, the medieval make up of the town itself, and notably the cultural enrichment bestowed upon it during the renaissance and in the 17th century, CittÓ della Pieve warrants a careful and detailed visit. SIGHTS TO SEE: Della Corgna Palace, built around 1555 under the direction of Galeazzo Alessi. Outside, the building has a rigid and prismatic shape. Inside, however, it is built round a countryard, with two orders of loggias facing on to it. The vaults of the rooms and the monumental staircases are adorned with "grotesque" decorations typical of the Tusco-Roman mannerist School. Among them are: the "Concert" in the Government Room, painted in 1563 by Niccol˛ Circignani, knows as "Il Pomarancio", the "Banquet of the Gods" and the "Loves of the Gods" painted by Salvio Savini and displayed in the Great Hall of the Mezzanine.
