The history of Anghiari
A gate-latch, an ancient book and a number of objects which universally summarize the history of this Tuscan town. Discovering the events that revolved around the “Bolt of Anghiari” (the gate-latch), starting from 1450, is a useful exercise for us contemporaries. So too is finding two amazing pieces of evidence of a pilgrimage route along the Tiber valley. There are some beautiful drawings of views of Anghiari made by Pietropaolo Taglieschi in the first half of the 1600s, “photographs” of an almost unchanged historical center.
