Is a city and comune in Italy and the capital of the province of the same name located in Toscana. Arezzo is about 80 kilometres southeast of Firenze at an elevation of 296 metres above sea level. It is also 30 km west of Città di Castello. In 2013 the population was about 99,000. Arezzo is set on a steep hill rising from the floodplain of the River Arno. In the upper part of the town are the cathedral, the town hall and the Medici Fortress (Fortezza Medicea), from which the main streets branch off towards the lower part as far as the gates. The upper part of the town maintains its medieval appearance despite the addition of later structures. Arezzo’s city proper is nearthe high risk areas for earthquakes, but located in a transitional area where the risk for severe earthquakes is much lower thanin nearby Umbria and Abruzzo, albeit it is slightly more vulnerable than Florence. Notable earthquakes are still a very rare phenomenonin the province, with a 4.6 quake 25 kilometres to its north-east that claimed no lives on 26 November 2001 the exception. Wikipedia
