The Umbertide study was composed to compliment that of Citta di Castello. I like it when you have a series of pictures that obviously go together. The compositions balance each other with the Rocca and the unusual 16th century, octagonal church, Santa Marie della Reggia taking up the middle ground against the town wall and the railway bridge.

Umbertide Castle

La Rocca

On the right you have the curvaceous apex of Santa Croce, while the interesting Civitella Ranieri stands atop the hill behind. The background has the pale shape of Mount Acuto, a distinct double humped hill that can be seen for miles around the Upper Tiber Valley.
