Went to the tourist centre and bought a pass. The palazzo is next door and houses an interesting library and map room. We found that thirty minutes was too long. The art work was interesting and the Raphael painting was beautiful. Recommended.

Far from Rome but tied with it.

This palazzo faces the main piazza in Fermo, and has a bronze sculpture of Pope Sistus 5 (he was from Montalto of the Marche) at the top of the edifice. Inside there are two displays - a huge painting as you enter in the Caravaggio style, and then you proceed to an antechamber with frescoes and a small architectural model of the palazzo. A doorway with an interesting architrave leads to the Globe or Map Room library. It is a wonderful kept as it was example of a renaissance library .... it is one of the top ten most important historical libraries in the region. The books (thousands) are arranged firstly in size with the very small ones at the top and large volumes on the bottom. Furthermore, the alphabet goes clockwise around the room with V and Z placed on the short ends of the rectangular room. The world globe is more than 5 metres in circumference and was made in Fabriano, the second city in Italy to become a paper-making centre. It is in fairly good condition. The guide explained that the books can be viewed after making arrangements at the Fermo library called Speziali Biblioteca, which also faces the main piazza. The admission cost includes 4 museums/exhibition sites and the ticket can be used over 12 months on separate days if you like.
