Municipal Galleries Art Library in Palazzo Mosca

Biblioteca d'Arte dei Musei Civici

The library was founded in 1947 on the initiative of Gian Carlo Polidori, the then director of the Municipal Galleries. The library specialises in figurative art, in particular the work of artists in the gallery, and applied art, particularly ceramics. The library is open for in loco open-shelf consultation. 

Volumes owned

The library owns about 7,000 volumes. The library catalogue can be consulted online in the Uniurb section and on SBN (Sistema Bibliotecario Nazionale). The open-shelf collection has seven main sections subdivided as follows: local, figurative art, ceramics, applied arts, graphic art, museology and cultural heritage, periodicals relating to the various sections (21 current; auction catalogues and a miscellany of discontinued periodicals).


Pandora, run by the Municipal Galleries of Pesaro, can be consulted on the intranet, set up for the care and management of the Municipal Galleries of Pesaro heritage, and consists of four databases: ceramics, paintings and drawings, applied arts, prints.
