The Bruno Molajoli Civic Art Gallery is located in the historic center of Fabriano. The Pinacoteca was founded in 1862 and is located inside the Hospital of Santa Maria del Buon Gesù. The Institution was named in 1988 to Bruno Molajoli, art historian from Fabriano and director of Fine Arts in the 1960s. The museum collection is mostly composed of works of medieval art with frescoes, tables and rare wooden sculptures from the second half of the 13th and 14th centuries. In particular, the works of local artists Allegretto Nuzi, Antonio da Fabriano, Simone De Magistris and Orazio Gentileschi are of great importance. The Flemish tapestry artifacts between the fifteenth and seventeenth centuries are significant. Among the most precious tapestries, the series dedicated to the Acts of the Apostles stand out. The Pinacoteca houses an important section dedicated to Ester Merloni, a collector from Fabriano who donated her collection to the city. The collection includes works by artists of the twentieth century, such as: De Chirico, De Pisis, Giacomo Balla, Alberto Burri, Enrico Castellani, Piero Dorazio and Giovanni Boldini. There is an unpublished drawing by Boldini: a pencil portrait. Inside the Pinacoteca there is a section dedicated to “Digital Creatives” with the story of the works made by the children of the Fabriano kindergarten for their peers.
