The Gallery of Ancient Art of Udine is located in the historic center of Udine inside the medieval castle. The Gallery exhibits its collection on the main floor and develops the exhibition itinerary in chronological order in the presentation of the works. The collection reconstructs the urban history of the city on a historical and artistic level. The collection consists of paintings dating from the period from the mid-fourteenth century to the early nineteenth century. To a first group of paintings executed on public commission for furnishing the seats of political power or coming from the churches of the city following the suppression of the religious orders and arrived in the museum immediately after its foundation, others acquired in the nineteenth century thanks to private donations. Subsequently, especially during the twentieth century, new purchases were made with the aim of integrating, completing and making organic the collections from the historical-artistic point of view according to modern growth policies. Of great value are: the fragment with the Stories of Troy, coming from the first municipal Loggia in via Manin at the foot of the Castle hill, and the Crucifixion and stories of the Virgin that adorned a private house in the historic center.
