Only by chance we heard about this special museum that is run by volunteers who have known or are friends of the special man who has been collecting all these unusual bicycles. In total you see 80 bicycles that were actually used by teachers,doctors,fishmongers,firemen,shoemakers and barbers,and many more,all perfectly preserved and found around Italy from 1920 on. One of the volunteer will be happy to show you these unusual bikes and give you a bit of history.It is a museum very much seen by school groups of the area,but I personally think that also grown up people like us would love it!

We were lucky to meet a volunteering guide, who showed us many things beyond the baroque interior of this duomo. You should not leave without seeing the magnificent medieval fresco's of the earlier church now still to be seen in small Chapels in the extreme far left and right corners. If no guide is available, ask a local person about the frescoes of Nuzi and others. Such amazing colours!
Our guide, who seemed to have the keys of all the churces in Fabriano, also brought us to the monastry opposite the Cathedral, with more beautiful paintings and a miraculous woodcarved ceiling with Maria and the apostels. After that, we were guided to a church that is that reveres Giovanni del Bastone, a saint with a healing stick. This walking cane can still be seen in the sacristy amoug other relics. Again many frescoes showing the life of this saint. Finally, we were shown a church, that is no longer in use, but that is much loved by the local inhabitants because of the influential historic events that took place here. In 1436 the male members of a tyrannic ruler's family were killed here by the angry population. Now, expositions and meetings are held here and people arrange their marriages in this former church. In it we saw the former woodcarved choir, replaced from the Cathedral, where it stood originally.

Fabriano is an interesting little city with several museums and this old castello in the middle of the center. We enjoyed walking around and shopping.

Just one small room with the original decorations. It was free and took very little time. I would not go out of my way for it but if you are in the area why not.

Square in the form of a triangle, with a gallery on one side, really original and beautiful. A place not to be missed. The tourist office is here as well.

There's an impressive exhibition being held in the gallery at the moment (summer and autumn 2014) of art from Giotto to Gentile da Fabriano, with painted sculptures, illuminated books, work in gold, frescoes rescued from now ruined churches and paintings on wood by many different artists, some well known, some less so, some anonymous. The lovely, delicate, vividly alive frescoes by the 'Master of Campodonico', of whom I'd never heard, are a particular revelation.
Definitely worth making an effort for.
A team of young people stand ready to answer questions and offer assistance. There are free guided tours every morning and evening, and even individual guided tours (for which I think you pay a little) can be arranged. Call 892 234 (from inside Italy) or +39 0412719035 (from abroad) for information.

Facilissima da trovare situata in pieno centro,ottagonale simbolo della città,fermatevi per le classiche foto di rito ma non perdeteci più di 5 minuti del vostro tempo,girate per il centro storico merita molto di più.
