Vespignano - Vicchio

Giotto’s birth placeGiotto’s birth place

The House of Giotto is surely one of the most interesting stops during a trip to Vicchio. 

 

Situated on the lovely hill of Vespignano, just below the Church of San Martino, this old and simple medieval building has been altered more than once over the centuries

 

Many restorations and studies discovered that this small building was an adjoining extension of a manor house

 

The House of Giotto, besides being of historical interest, offers the possibility of visiting the Museum on exhibition inside the house.

 

After a year-long dispute, it is now considered the real birthplace of Giotto di Bondone (1267 - 1337), born in a peasant family and became the genius who, in the pre- Renaissance, operated the great renewal in the world art.

And to enjoy Home of Giotto and the Museum of Sacred Art and Popular Devoutness, from 2016 you can book your guided visit in a complete day at € 8.00 per person. Download the complete program Grand Tour
