Not only Piero della Francesca...
The Civic Museum is located inside the medieval Palazzo della Residenza which has undergone various changes over the years becoming, for example, in 1371 the private home of the Malatesta family. Thanks to some restoration works, ancient spaces have been recovered in the basement and on the top floor.
The Palace started to be a museum around 1460, when in the "Sala dei Conservatori" Piero della Francesca frescoed his Resurrection, a work that became the symbol of the city, but the Museum was officially inaugurated in 1975.
The famous Bassano painters were then called to paint the "Cappella della Residenza" and during the course of the years, works and engravings by famous artists were acquired to enrich the museum's collection, as well as artworks from suppressed religious corporations.
The visit covers three levels and starts on the ground floor from the "Sala del Camino" (Fireplace Room, so called due to the presence of a 17th century fireplace). On the first floor there are frescoes detached from some churches of Sansepolcro that represent an important testimony of local painting; you can admire masterpieces by Piero della Francesca, like the already mentioned Resurrection, the Polyptych of the Madonna della Misericordia, the San Giuliano and the San Ludovico. Of particular importance are also the beautiful glazed potteries by Della Robbia family, the fresco with the Martyrdom of San Quintino by Pontormo, as well as works by Santi di Tito and Raffaellino del Colle.
