Crociani Civic Museum and Picture Gallery

The Museo Civico Pinacoteca Crociani (Crociani Civic Museum and Picture Gallery) is in Via Ricci, not far from Piazza Grande. It occupies four floors and is arranged into five sections: archaeology, Montepulciano, the Terracotte Robbiane exhibit, the Pinacoteca and the Studiolo.

The numerous exhibits on display are all beautiful. They include a “Saint Agnese Segni, holding a model of the town of Montepulciano”, by Domenico Beccafumi, and a “Portrait of a gentleman” by Caravaggio.  The Pinacoteca is enriched with a “Holy Family with the infant St. John” by Sodoma, and a “Madonna and child” by Signorelli.

The Terracotte Robbiane alone are worth a visit to the museum.
