San Domenico Civic Museum

The San Domenico Museum is the location of Forlì’s municipal art gallery. Its history dates back to the 13th century, when what is now the largest museum complex in Forlì was a Dominican convent, after which it was named. The structure consists of various spaces, including what was once the convent, now home to the art gallery, two cloisters and the recently renovated Church of San Giacomo. The exhibition tour runs through the different areas of the museum, taking the visitor through different eras. It starts with the oldest works in the art gallery, such as the Triptych with Stories of the Virgin and Saints by the Maestro di Forlì, or the fresco The Pestapepe, and then moves on to the panels by Beato Angelico and Lorenzo di Credi. The itinerary continues in the left wing, with works by Marco Palmezzano, Baldassarre Carrari, Nicolò Rondinelli, Francesco Zaganelli, Luca Longhi, up to the Mannerism of Francesco Menzocchi, Livio Agresti and Livio Modigliani. The remaining rooms and the gallery display, in continuous dialogue, a rich documentation of works from the late Mannerism and early 17th century in Emilia and Romagna. Finally, we move on to the Oval Room, which houses the Hebe, a famous work by sculptor Antonio Canova, the greatest exponent of Neoclassicism.

* The painting ‘Fiasca spagliata con Fiori’ will be on loan until 30 June at the Museo di Castelvecchio in Verona for the ‘Ospiti in Galleria’ project
