Le Dimore del Quartetto


Categories , ,

Palazzo Brancadoro, that rises in the medieval streets of the historic center of Fermo, dates back to the end of the 17th century, precisely to 1669.
It was the residence of Cesare Brancadoro, belonging to one of the oldest patrician families in the city.
Born in 1755 by the Count Giuseppe and Giulia Massi, Cesare was promoted to a priestly career and on 23 February 1801 he was named cardinal with the title of S. Girolamo dei Croati.
He died in the archdiocese of Fermo on 12 September 1837, at the age of 82.
In the early 1900s, the noble floor of the palace was purchased by the Danielli family, who still owns it and still lives there. Over the years, numerous restorations and conservation interventions has been carried out to preserve their artistic and historical value.

From June 26th 2021 to July 22nd 2021 | inauguration on Saturday, June 26th  at 6 pm

Palazzo Brancadoro hosts again an exposition dedicated to its history, or to better say, to the history of the family that inhabits it and to the city in which it is located.

Staged in the rooms of this palace of the XVII century, the exhibition is a personal show of the Vedovamazzei pair, composed by Stella Scala and Simeone Crispino, active since the beginning of the nineties and among the most important of their generation. The works presented, double-stranded to the family and to place where they are located, have been created thanks to a particular synergy that has been established between Anna Danielli, her family and the artistic duo.

An homage to the city of Fermo and a story tell of the passion for culture, declined in the forms of music and visual arts, which characterized the activities that animate Palazzo Brancadoro. Indeed, for some years now, thanks to the activity of Circolo di Ave, inside the spaces of the Palace are organized concerts of classical and jazz music, and since last year, thanks to the collaboration with the Karussell association, art has also crossed the threshold of this place.

The exhibition Vedovamazzei also inaugurates the Circuit of house museums of Fermo, which will be active from Sunday, July 4th. Are part of it Palazzo Brancadoro, as the lead, Palazzo Bernetti Evangelista and Palazzo Falconi.

Due to the health emergency, the access will be regulated with the appropriated organisational measures to prevent overcrowding, also trough the staggering of the entrances, in compliance with current legislation.

October 17th 2021, Palazzo Brancadoro, togheter with the other Houses of the circuit, opened its doors in occasion of the Giornate FAI d’Autunno (FAI Fall Days).



In 2019, Anna e Paola Danielli, from their passion for music and art, have founded the cultural association Il Circolo di Ave with the aim of promoting emerging musicians, spread music of established artists trough moments of meeting and conviviality, and host art exhibitions, giving the chance to visit a place that up until now was never open to the public.
The music festival take place in the frescoed rooms of the house, including the great ballroom where brilliant musicians have entertained and involved the public with virtuosity of high value.
In the same rooms has been exhibited the work of important artists promoted by the association Karussell/contemporary art, in collaboration with the Fermo delegation of FAI.
