Civic and Diocesan Museum of Camerino

Civic and Diocesan Museum of Camerino

Camerino, in the center of an uncontaminated mountain area, dominates from the top of the hill the large basin bordered to the south-east by the Sibillini. Of Umbrian origin, a Roman municipality with its own magistrates, the city was already an episcopal seat in 465. Capital of the Lombard duchy, of the county and the Franche brand, it entered the communal life at an early stage. Destroyed in 1259 by Manfredi's army, the city was resurrected by the da Varano family, who remained in power over a vast territory until 1539 after reaching the ducal crown.

Currently the original headquarters of both civic and diocesan city museums are uninhabitable, but since 2019 the civic and diocesan collections are housed in the “Venanzina Pennesi” building which features modern installations and cutting-edge digital tools.

The exhibition gives great importance to the figurative civilization of the fifteenth century camerte: 'the most notable pictorial school of the Marche', as Federico Zeri defined it, characterized by poetic and luminous geometries accompanied by the expression of tender and sincere feelings. Therefore, the most emblematic and significant work for Camerino cannot be missing, the Annunciation and Christ in Piety by Giovanni Angelo d'Antonio, the most surprising manifesto of the fifteenth century in the Marche region.
