A new beginning for museums in Fermo

In early 2017, the municipality of Fermo has embarked on an ambitious path of renewal for the whole cultural offering in town, aimed at increasing the attractiveness and accessibility of the entire city's historical and cultural heritage, by introducing innovation either in terms of business models that promote a public-private partnership, either in terms of technologies applied in innovative ways of use of cultural heritage. We expect that this will bring social and economic benefits linked to tourism development.

In early 2017, the municipality of Fermo has embarked on an ambitious path of renewal for the whole cultural offering in town, aimed at increasing the attractiveness and accessibility of the entire city's historical and cultural heritage, by introducing innovation either in terms of business models that promote a public-private partnership, either in terms of technologies applied in innovative ways of use of cultural heritage. We expect that this will bring social and economic benefits linked to tourism development.

The idea is to create a single integrated system that gives a chance the tourist to enjoy a complete visit to all museums with a single ticket valid for whole year, with the chance to return to see what remains to be visited.

In this new museum network design, diSTORY project, funded under the European Creative Europe program, occupies an important place allowing to introduce new forms of public involvement and experience of interactive fruition thanks to multimedia technology. This project also represents a rebirth for the city of Fermo, after that, in the late 2016, earthquakes have damaged, rendering them temporarily unfit for use, some of the most important resources of the cultural and artistic heritage of the city.

In these days works for the restoration of Palazzo dei Priori have started. This palace is the true focus of the cultural offering of Fermo, which houses the Pinacoteca with the masterpiece “Adoration of the Shepherds” by Rubens, the Scientific Library with the mysterious and fascinating XVIII century Globe and the Hall of Portraits. The palace will be open again to the public starting this summer.
