The Prints And Drawings Study Room

This graphic section of Fermo Library consists almost entirely of the private collection of Fermo-born architect Giovanni Battista Carducci (1806-1878).

It includes some 6,500 engravings and 4,500 drawings, carefully selected and collected over the years, demonstrating a particularly refined taste. Priceless archaeological finds, statuary art items, canvases and paintings are also displayed together. The room’s drawings include individual 16th-century documents by Giovanni Antonio Dosio or 17th-century ones by Piola and Baciccio. Engravings include numerous translation prints by Michelangelo, Raphael and Titian and rare documents by Barocci and Carracci.
