Palazzo Trinci, Foligno

4.6
The Trinci Palace is a patrician residence in the center of Foligno, central Italy. It houses an archaeological museum, the city's picture gallery, a multimedia museum of Tournaments and Jousts and the Civic Museum.HistoryPalazzo Trinci was the residence of the Trinci family who ruled over the city from 1305 to 1439. The palace was built (attested by archival documents) over a medieval building by Ugolino III Trinci between 1389 and 1407. An adapted Roman burial stele states the date 1407, which may be the actual year the construction started. It was completed in 1411.After the defeat and death of Corrado III Trinci (June 1441), the palace became the seat of the Priori del Popolo and the papal government of Foligno. From that moment on, the building began to decline slowly. Already in 1458 Pope Pius II had to provide 200 guilders for its restoration. A similar episode occurred in 1475 with pope Sixtus IV and in 1546 with pope Paul III Farnese. The south-west part of the building was used as a prison from 1578 on. The staircase in the courtyard was restored in 1679, but then demolished in 1781. In the early 18th century, a small part of the south-west building was converted to a small theater.The building underwent serious damage by the earthquakes of 1831-1832 and minor damages by the bombing of Foligno in 1944 and the earthquake of 1985.DescriptionThe present inconspicuous Neoclassical façade dates only from 1842 to 1847. It was built by Vincenzo Vitali on a draft of Odoardo Poggi, amended by Sigismondo Ferretti.

  • In Foligno on the occasion of the traditional and famous Festival of the first of Italy, we discovered this magnificent Gothic Palace (in the city there are beautiful palaces and churches) where the noble lords Trinci landowners lived. The Palace has a beautiful courtyard and the staircase is beautiful, a truly magical and evocative place for the stands present of the event.

  • Historic palace beautifully renovated and held impeccably. It houses a museum with frescoes of the most important painters of the Renaissance area. A must stop if you visit Foligno to learn about the history of the city.

  • Top&Magic place
  • Superb.
  • Outstanding collection of artworks in the Pinacoteca Civica alongside the remarkable fresco cycles by Gentile da Fabriano and Ottaviano Nelli. An extraordinary museum complex in an architectural setting rich in local history and art historical importance.
  • Very characteristic Structure for the town square. To visit even inside. For reasons of time I did not have the way to visit it however from the rumors that turn is very beautiful internally. The next time I go to Foligno it will be my first priority.
