On display in the palazzo Ducale, this is amongst the largest collections of Italian art. The exhibition includes as follows: Alvise Vivarini and Vittore Crivelli, Melozzo da Forli', Raffaello with the famous "Ritratto di gentildonna" (better known as "La Muta"), Paolo Uccello with a predella, Andrea del Verrocchio, Piero della Francesca with the "Flagellazione" and the "Madonna di Senigallia", Federico Barocci, Luca Signorelli, Pedro Berruguete, Tiziano with the "Ultima Cena" and the "Resurrezione". Also famous are the "Prospettiva di citt ideale", the Alcova by Federico da Montefeltro, the "Studiolo" and the series of 14 portraits which were intended to decorate it, attributed to Giusto di Gand. A collection of pottery from the most well known manufacturers in the Marches, Tuscany and Abruzzo. Flemish tapestries following designs by Raphael. The splendid building is a typical Renaissance residence, defined as a "town in the form of a Palace" and is the most important monument in the Marches. It was designed by Luciano Laurana in 1465 for Federico da Montefeltro; the imposing building was completed by Francesco di Giorgio Martini and by Girolamo Genga and has, since then, overlooked Urbino, with its airy open galleries, with its splendid windows and with the two towers which stand like hinges at the ends of the long faades. The restorations which were completed in 1985, have recuperated the system of the palace's underground passages and made them accessible; these are an interesting labyrinth of rational environments which throw light onto the events and the customs of the court.
