Located near the Roman Theatre, the building is a typical rural building of modest size, divided over two floors. During the consolidation works were found the remains of ancient masonry relevant to a very large Roman domus.
The domus, occupied by the cottage, presents Atrium, tablinum, kitchen and latrine, earthenware flooring and mosaic. Inside the tablinum is preserved mosaic flooring with geometric decoration in black and white, of which only a few fragments remain, and a central round (emblem) with polychrome depictions of Scilla opus vermiculatum. Given the importance of the mosaics and t

The Museum displays the different phases of the traditional production of tin-glazed ceramics and preserves important work samples of the Master Giorgio Andreoli.

The Palace of the Consuls The Palazzo dei Consoli is clearly visible from a long distance and stands in the historical city center of Gubbio. Its façade overlooks Piazza Grande, a highly elevated terrace, and political fulcrum of the 14th century town. Today, this building is the seat of the Civic Museum, where it is possible to admire the Egubine Tablets, a precious bronze evidence of the Umbrian language. The palace was built, between 1332 and 1349, based on a design of Angelo da Orvieto—remembered with an inscription above the entrance door—with the contribution of

This palace was built by Federico da Montefeltro (1422-1482), the Duke of Urbino, whose family dominated Gubbio between 1480 and 1508. The palace undoubtedly deserves a visit for its elegant Renaissance forms, which characterize it and reminds one of Palazzo Ducale of Urbino. In its construction, the main features of medieval buildings and space, including the famous Longobard “Court” and
Collection of St Ubald Memoires The Raccolta delle Memorie Ubaldiane is held in Sant’Ubaldo Convent up on Mount Igino. It is a Permanent Museum Collection, which through the display of objects, documents and works of art, illustrates the life of Ubald, Patron Saint of Gubbio, who lived between 1085 and 1160, and the cult that in the course of the centuries has been dedicated to his memory. It also refers to the renowned Festa dei Ceri—St. Ubald Day—a popular celebration that has been performed every 15 May—on the eve of his death—in Gubbio for 800 years. Among the works exhibited, a
