Palazzo Lepri

Palazzo Lepri

The palace, built in the late 18th century by architect Andrea Vici on commission of the Lepri family, now houses the Art Gallery, Library and Archaeological Museum in Bevagna.

The neoclassical façade is enriched by a door with an elegant wrought-iron rostrum.

The atrium has Doric columns with a balustrade above. 

 

Along the access staircase to the palace is a collection of assembled archaeological finds and the remains of a colossal Roman statue, ordered in 1787 by Abbot Fabio Alberti.
The Council Chamber contains three paintings by local painter Paolo Spetta, mid-19th century.
The Council Chamber is adorned with allegorical decorations and portraits of illustrious men of Bevagna, executed in 1867-68 by painter Mariano Piervittori da Tolentino, and restored by painter Matteo Tassi.


The Art Gallery contains paintings by Dono Doni, Ascensidonio Spacca and Andrea Camassei, and the wooden chest of Blessed Giacomo Bianconi painted by Fantino in 1589.

Of note in the archaeological collection are the silver coins from the Republican age that were part of the small treasure found in 1931 near a city gate during the renovation of the sports field. Enriched over time, the collection also includes funerary and honorary inscriptions, funerary stelae, locally produced cinerary urns, fragments of sculptures, architectural decorations, small bronzes and ceramics.

The Bevagna urns, made of sandstone, are a typical local production from the 2nd and 1st centuries BC, attested by numerous finds in the area.
