URBINO 1

URBINO 1

How many of you visited  URBINO?…Actually, I guess a better question would be: ” How many of you heard of URBINO?”

Frankly speaking I heard not so long ago, while reading one article about four masters of the Renaissance. There was stated that one of the most famous painters of all times, Raffaello, was born in the mentioned town and there is still his birth house (I guess a knowledge I received at school has evaporated over years)

I googled immediately to see how the place looks like and was literally in shock. Such an amazing hilltop town, an important University center and I know almost nothing about it. How come?!?…hm, ok, now I can comfort myself, ’cause as many as 95% of people I know are not familiar with this town name!!…(It’s just not strange why some sources define it as ”Italy’s best kept secret”)

Two days later we were in the town already, exploring it and consuming its culture.

(Since there are many pictures I decided to split them into two different posts.)

Koliko vas je posetilo grad URBINO?..Odnosno, mislim da je pametnije pitati:” Koliko vas je culo za grad URBINO?”

Iskreno govoreci ja sam se susrela sa ovim imenom ne tako davno, i to dok sam citala clanak o cetvorici mastera renesanse. Bilo je navedeno da je jedan od najcuvenijih slikara svih vremena, Rafaelo, rodjen upravo u pomenutom gradu i da se tamo i dalje nalazi njegova rodna kuca. (Verovatno se znanje koje sam dobila u skoli s vremenom potpuno isgubilo)

Odmah sam otisla da proverim kako izgleda ovo mesto, i bukvalno ostala u soku. Takav predivan grad, na vrhu brda, bitan univerzitetski centar, a ja skoro nista nisam znala o njemu. Kako je moguce?!!…hm, ok, sada se mogu utesiti, jer cak 95% ljudi sa kojima sam u kontaktu nije upoznato sa ovim imenom!!… (Nije za cudjenje sto ga pojedini izvori definisu kao ”Najbolje cuvana tajna Italije”.

Dva dana nakon ovih saznanja smo vec bili u centru Urbina, istrazivali ga i upijali njegovu lepotu.

(S obzirom da ima izuzetno puno slika, odlucila da ih podelim u dva razlicita posta.)
