Museo delle Arti e Tradizioni Popolari dell’Alta Valle del Tevere - Palazzo Taglieschi

Piazza Mameli, 16, Anghiari, (Arezzo)

Taglieschi Palace, seat of the State Museum of Arts and Popular Traditions of the Tiber Valley, was commissioned by Matthew Antonio di Bartolomeo Taglieschi, captain, in the second half of the sixteenth century. The Museum was established thanks to the legacy of the last owner of the building, Don Nilo Conti. On the ground floor are exposed stone materials of varying age and origin, while in the rooms of the first floor there is an interesting exhibition of fourteenth and fifteenth century wooden statues, among which a "Madonna and Child" by Jacopo della Quercia. The Museum is characterized not only for the presence of terracotta reliefs by the workshop of the della Robbia and interesting paintings, also for collection of votive and dressed Madonnas (XVII-XX centuries) from across the province of Arezzo.
