Monte San Savino in Provincia di Arezzo
Monte San Savino  
Description: This is the birthplace of the great Renaissance sculptor Andrea Contucci called Il Sansovino and of Pope Julius III. The historic centre spreads out from the Cassero, the old fortress dating back to the XIV cent., and continues along Corso Sangallo, lined by the Renaissance Logge dei Mercanti attributed to Sansovino, to the Palazzo di Monte, today the seat of the Council, from Palazzo Pretorio with its tower, and on to the Pieve and the Church of Sant'Agostino which houses a beautiful Assunzione by Giorgio Vasari. A short distance from the historic centre is the Sanctuary of Santa Maria delle Vertighe which was already documented in the XI cent. A particular appointment in the summer is the theatrical event Teatro Popolare Il Giogo , which is held every year in Montagnano, during July.
