The Ducal Palace is now home to the National Gallery of the Marche. This exhibit with 80 rooms contains paintings, frescoes, stone and terracotta sculptures, furnishings, tapestries, drawings and engravings dating back to a period from the fourteenth to the seventeenth centuries.
Your visit will begin from the Cortile d'Onore (Courtyard of Honor), where crossing through the arched porticoes, you will be able to access a series of evocative places: the Biblioteca del Duca (Duke's Library), the Sala dei Banchetti (Banquet Hall), the Duke's two private chapels, the Appartamenti dei gentiluomini d'arme (Apartments of the Gentlemen at Arms), now home to the Archaeological Museum, and finally, the Sotterranei (Basement) containing numerous facilities.
Going up the monumental Scalone d'Onore (Stairway of Honour) you will reach the first floor, which is divided into five apartments. In the Appartamento del Duca (Duke's Apartments), you will be able to delve completely in the Renaissance world of Duke Federico. In these rooms, you can admire the greatest masterpieces of the fifteenth century, including the Flagellazione di Cristo (Flagellation of Christ), and the Madonna di Senigallia by Piero della Francesca.
From the Appartamento del Duca (Duke's Apartments) you will be able to go to the Sale di Rappresentanza (State Rooms): the Sala degli Angeli (Angels' Room), the Sala del Trono (Throne Room), and the Sala delle Veglie (Gathering Hall). The most sumptuous of the three, the Sala degli Angeli (Angels' Room), is home to some Renaissance masterpieces such as the Città Ideale (Ideal City) by Leon Battista Alberti and Luciano Laurana, as well as the Profanazione dell'Ostia (Desecrated Host) by Paolo Uccello. However, the Sala del Trono (Throne Room), also called the Sala delle Feste (Banqueting Hall), is the most majestic setting of the palace thanks to its collection of seventeenth-century tapestries.
The last apartment on the first floor is the Appartamento della Duchessa (Duchess’ Apartments), where various works of the sixteenth century are exhibited, including the Ritratto di Gentildonna (Portrait of a Gentlewoman) by Raphael, the Resurrezione (Resurrection), and the Ultima Cena (Last Supper) by Titian.
On the second and last floor of the building, you will be able to admire other paintings by Barocci, Gentileschi, and Guerrieri, dating back to the end of the sixteenth century and the second half of the seventeenth century.
