...English writer Aldous Huxley described the Resurrection by Piero della Francesca which is in the Museo Civico as "the greatest painting in the world". It also houses other work by Piero della Francesca and by Santi di Tito, Raffaellino del Colle and Luca Signorelli.

Sansepolcro escaped artillery fire during World War II because the British captain charged with the task had read the essay by Huxley.
