Invisible itineraries can be traced among the paintings of the local Museum of Fano. They tell us about noble families and noblemen who contributed to building the history of the town.
We focused on those itineraries and were particularly interested in Giacomo Torelli’s family, who was an important stagehand of the XVII century. The Scientifical High School of Fano was named after him.
The leaflets of the Museum and a special web site: museotorelli.it make it possible to know about the history behind the portraits and paintings commissioned by some noblemen from Fano. We referred in particular to the ones who lived during the XVII century who left visible signs even outside the walls of our town.
Moreover some places of our town witness the past presence of those noble families, who commissioned the artistic and cultural works that modified the shape and history of Fano. It’s a pity though that some of those works went lost.
