• Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Jesi
By statute, the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Jesi is the ideal continuation of the Cassa di Risparmio di Jesi, which was established in 1844 by a partnership and registered as a non-profit organization.
Palazzo Bisaccioni and the Via Martini Complex
For several years now, the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Jesi has decided to play an active role in the conservation and promotion of the region’s artistic heritage.
When Alessandro Ghislieri promoted the establishment of the Cassa di Risparmio di Jesi in 1844, he had already decided that its seat would be in the old Palazzo Bisaccioni, which was built in 1527 and was located in one of the most relevant piazzas in the historical centre of Jesi.
Palazzo Bisaccioni, together with the Via Martini Complex, are now cultural community centres that organize temporary and permanent exhibitions, conferences, training and coworking activities targeted on an ever-broader, diversified, active and co-creative public.

Museum Halls in Palazzo Bisaccioni
Collection of ancient and modern art
In 2005, the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Jesi decided to build a permanent exhibition space inside Palazzo Bisaccioni which, after important restoration works, gave the opportunity to exhibit to the public the works in its collection, which mainly consisted of 17th century paintings.
Over the years, the collection exhibited in the Museum Halls of Palazzo Bisaccioni was enriched with local artworks which were restored by the Foundation and displayed in temporary exhibitions.
Permanent exhibition of the work of Domenico Luigi Valeri
The exhibition, located on the ground floor of Palazzo Bisaccioni, pays tribute to one of the Marche Region’s most important and prolific 17th century painters: Domenico Luigi Valeri (1701-1765).
The first floor of Palazzo Bisaccioni hosts ancient works of art from the 16th to the 18th century, the most outstanding of which are the paintings by Carlo Cignani, Francesco Da Ponte, Raffaellino Del Colle, Guercino and Giorgio Vasari.
The collection mostly comprises paintings from different historic periods and schools, acquired over the years through donations, purchases or temporary loans.
Exhibition of sculptures by Sergio Tapia Radic
The ground floor of Palazzo Bisaccioni hosts a selection of sculptures by Maestro Sergio Tapia Radic, originally from Chile and an internationally known artist who has been living in the Marche Region for many years.
After walking through the hall with Maestro Radic’s works, another exhibition space is dedicated to hosting temporary exhibitions.
Collection of Contemporary Art
The second floor displays artworks from the 20th century prevalently by artists born in Jesi and in the Marche Region, the most important of whom are Eugenio Azzocchi, Ezio Bartocci, Raul Batocco, Edmondo Giuliani, Orfeo Tamburi and Valeriano Trubbiani.
