Where we are

The City of Cortona

Today, Cortona is still very similar to when it was named Curtun and was one of the twelve capital cities of Etruria in Etruscan times.

Cortona is surrounded by 3km of Etruscan and Roman walls that enclose precious traces of its history from Prehistory, until today.

Th MAEC Museum, holder of the historical and artistic memory of the city, is located in the middle of one of the two principal squares in Cortona.

The Museum is in fact located in the historical Palazzo Casali in Piazza Signorelli, Cortona.
