the Artist Francesco Podesti

One of the most important painters of the Italian romance

Francesco Podesti, a famous painter known all over the Europe, was born right in the Conero and Ancona was the district that made his studies possible through public fundings, due to his distinct talent.

Taken under Canova’s wing, he became one of the most important exponent of the Italian Romanticism. Famous are his frescos in the “Sala dell’immacolata” in the “Palazzi Vaticani”.

Despite his celebrity he stayed always attached to Ancona, his own town, and even when he was 80 years old he got back once more in the scaffolding and made a fresco in the vault of the “Chiesa del Santissimo Sacramento”.

In Ancona, in the Rione Capodimonte, we can still find the birthplace of Francesco Podesti and in the city it is possible to know this artist by discovering the places where his artworks are placed and preserved.
