A town of ancient Etruscan origins, known in Roman times as Civitas Sobariae, it suffered repeated looting during the barbarian invasions and was harshly disputed during the late Middle-Ages between the Ghibelline Arezzo and the Guelph Città di Castello. At the beginning of the 16th century the Pope granted in vicariate Citerna to the Vitelli family, which ruled it until the end of 17th Century. In the church of St. Francis there are paintings attributed to Luca Signorelli and Raffaelino, in addition to the famous sculpture of the Madonna with the Child, a precious masterpiece by Donatello. Citerna is part of the exclusive club of “The most beautiful villages in Italy”.
