one of the most luminous courts in Europe during the 15 C.
Duke Federico da Montefeltro gathered around him the greatest
painters, poets and scholars of his day. The Ducal Palace of
Urbino still houses many of the splendid works of art that
were produced during this period and is an essential stop on any
tour of Italy. At the Urbino court, Piero della Francesca wrote on the science of
perspective and Francesco di Giorgio Martini wrote his
Treatise on Architecture. The Book of the Courtier by
Castiglione set standards of what characterised a modern European gentleman for
centuries to come.
