The Palazzo Ricci Museum is located in the historic center of Macerata and is located in the sixteenth-century palace of the same name. Of particular value are the rooms on the main floor, including the sumptuous ballroom, finely decorated with a cycle of decorations inspired by Ovid's Metamorphoses of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. The Museum houses a rich collection of both pictorial and sculptural works from the twentieth century. Among the protagonists of Italian art we find the Ecce Puer by Medardo Rosso, Umberto Boccioni, the Sunset with two sheaves by Gino Severini, the Portrait of a woman and the landscape-strength lines by Giacomo Balla. No less interesting is Ardengo Soffici's Still Life with Fruit Bowl and Dove. From the Futurist period we find names of the caliber of Fortunato Depero, Enrico Prampolini and Ivo Pannaggi. The informal finds its greatest exponents with Lucio Fontana, Alberto Burri Roberto Crippa, Gianni Dova, Tancredi Parmeggiani, Emilio Scanavino and Giuseppe Capogrossi. The path winds through Italian Pop Art with exponents such as Mario Schifano, Tano Festa, Valerio Adami, Emilio Tadini, Lucio del Pezzo, Tino Stefanoni up to the sculptors Gino Marotta and Mario Ceroli. The collection is completed by a substantial nucleus of sculptures that document the plastic research of the twentieth century with the works of Arturo Martini, the Pomodoro brothers, Francesco Messina, Augusto Perez, Giacomo Manzù, Umberto Mastroianni and Luciano Minguzzi.
