ART GALLERY

Ancona’s main art gallery, one of Le Marche’s most important, is named after local painter Francesco Podesti, who contributed to its opening in 1884 with some of its paintings.

 

Located in Palazzo Bosdari, in Via Pizzecolli, since 1973, the gallery boasts a collection of works dating back from the Middle Ages. The masterpieces displayed at the gallery include the marvelous “Gozzi Altarpiece” by Titian, the first dated work by the Venetian master; a sublime “Madonna and Child” by Carlo Crivelli; the dramatic “Sacred Conversation”, also known as the “Altarpiece of the Halberd”, by Lorenzo Lotto; and works by Sebastiano Del Piombo, Andrea Lilli, Guercino, Francesco Podesti and many others.

The Museum also houses an important collection of works by 20th century artists such as Bartolini, Bucci, Cagli, Trubbiani, Enzo Cucchi and other contemporary artists featured in the Premio Marche, a prestigious art biennale.

A section of the gallery is also dedicated to temporary exhibitions.

The main entrance is in Via Pizzecolli 17
