Gubbio, Palazzo dei Consoli

MUSEUMS IN GUBBIO

Museo Civico (Civic Museum):
the seat is in Palazzo dei Consoli, one of the most beautiful pieces of Italian civil architecture built between 1332 and 1349. The ground floor areas are occupied by the Civic Musem, whilst the Art Gallery can be found on the first floor. The Civic Museum contains archaeological remains from the 19th Century (those most recently acquired are conserved in the Archaeological Section). The famous Eugubine tablets are conserved here (in the ancient Chapel of the building): bronze slabs with the Umbro alphabet, referring to the cults of the ancient settlements. The Art Gallery area, on the upper floor, is set out in chronological order and highlights local artistic culture from the Medieval to the Baroque period.


Sezione Archeologica del Museo Civico (Archeaological Section in the Civic Museum):

is established in the Consoli building, with access from Via Gattapone, but will be unified with the other museum sections in the future. The collection highlights the historical passage through time of the territory; from the pre-historic to medieval eras.


Museo di Palazzo Ducale (Ducal Palace Museum):

is situated in the Palazzo Ducale in front of the Cathedral and was concluded in 1480. The palace was probably planned and designed by Francesco di Giorgio Martini at the request of Federico da Montefeltro. The museum collects furniture, paintings and frescoes taken down from various places.
