Sala Cagnacci

Enriched by the presence of the ‘Oggetti in ascolto’ stove (the listening objects), the room retains a romantic aura. Guido Cagnacci, a painter of great fame, as well as a refined engraver, was born in Santarcangelo on 13th January 1601. His artistic journey took him first to Rome and then again in Romagna, Marche and finally to Venice. He died in Vienna in 1663 at the Court of the Emperor Leopold I of Austria where he had moved in 1658. His famous paintings enrich the churches and art galleries of Italy. In Santarcangelo you can see two remarkable works of Cagnacci.
