Civic Museums of Palazzo Mosca
Palazzo Mosca in Pesaro has been the seat of the Civic Museums since 1936.
Palazzo Mosca was born as the residence of one of the most important families of the Pesaro nobility. The legacy of a large part of the collections preserved here is due to the marquise Vittoria, an enlightened collector.
Renovated in 2013, the "new" Civic Museums of Palazzo Mosca house the permanent collections divided into a chronological and emotional path, starting from the Bellini Room with the Coronation of the Virgin , the supreme example of the Italian Renaissance.
In the second room, the " Wunderkammer ", ceramics and majolica are exhibited, documenting in particular the production of the Duchy of Urbino, together with the decorative arts, furnishings and sculptures.
It continues with the works of sacred and profane subjects from the sixteenth to the eighteenth century, including the famous Fall of the Giants by Guido Reni (Hercolani-Rossini collection), and with still lifes of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries , alongside a spectacular display of floral majolica .
The Civic Museums of Palazzo Mosca host temporary exhibitions and are equipped with additional services such as wi-fi, multimedia supports for visiting the rooms and audio guide service in SMART mode from tablets and smartphones; in addition to the cafeteria and the conference room.
