I just attended a lecture by the editor of this book, Dana Prescott, who lives much of the year in gorgeous Umbria. Now I can't wait to get to Italy again. From the Amazon website:
In this exquisite anthology, esteemed poets from America, Italy, and elsewhere follow the renowned Piero Trail, a route through Tuscany and Umbria that features some of the most acclaimed frescoes by the legendary Renaissance painter, Piero della Francesca. The resulting poems―including ones by Henri Cole, Jorie Graham, Charles Wright, and Patti Smtih―capture Piero’s incomparable influence in the artistic, literary, and spiritual worlds, generated as they are by the transcendence of Piero’s timeless powers. Including twelve reproductions of Piero’s frescoes, a foreword by Rosanna Warren, and an introduction by anthologist Dana Prescott, Feathers from the Angel’s Wing is unforgettable collection, a book to be cherished by lovers of art, artists, and the spirits that move them. 12 color reproductions
