Visit to the "Musei Civici" in Pesaro
The Greek seniors visited the "Musei Civici" and "Palazzo Mosca" in Pesaro. Since 1936, Palazzo Mosca has been the seat of the local museum, the Musei Civici. The palazzo is now a property of the city of Pesaro, but it once housed one of the most prominent aristocratic families in the area. The Moscas were rich merchants from Bergamo and they moved to Pesaro around the mid 16th century. They were soon to become members of the local aristocracy, and their fast rise to economic power gave them the chance to build Villa Caprile, a mansion just outside the city centre, and Palazzo Mosca, the building that took their name, in the very heart of Pesaro.
