The Madonna del Parto is one of the greatest works of Piero del-la Francesca. Standing in the middle of a canopy made of pre-cious brocade, Our pregnant Lady reveals herself to the faithful. Two angels hold the tent canopy open allowing the faithful to admire the Virgin, majestic and solemn yet humble at the same time. The fresco was made around the middle of the ffteenth century in the church of Santa Maria di Momentana which no longer exists. It has been in this museum since 1992, right in the middle of a educational trail introducing visitors to the life and works of Piero della Francesca.

Started in 1459 by Piero, the painting is really stunning with the pregnant Madonna being shown with two angels holding back a screen. In another room is a video depicting the background and creation of the painting and its discovery in a graveyard.
