In the past Cortona was one of the most important Etruscan towns. It was the Etruscan who, in the 6th century BC, built the imposing walls that are still partly visible. In the 13th century Cortona became a free commune and was involved into the struggle between Guelfs and Ghibellines that racked Tuscany as an ally of Florence and Siena against nearby Arezzo. In the 15th century, the town became part of the Florentine Republic.
Recently Cortona has been the set of several famous films, including "Benvenuti in Casa Gori", "Under the Tuscan Sun" and "Life is Beautiful".
