The catalogue illustrates the exhibition itinerary that, starting at the Bruno Molajoli art gallery in Fabriano with around ninety works from the Umbrian and Marchigian artistic milieu of the 14th and 15th centuries, explores itineraries through the churches of Sant’Agostino, San Domenico and the cathedral of San Venanzio.The numerous works on display, little known to the general public, aim at definitively establishing the coordinates of a Marchigian school – that of Fabriano in particular – that developed in the wake of Giotto’s legacy.In this rich and varied scenario we find key artists, starting with the Master of Campodonico, a powerful and original painter with formal and expressive qualities unique on the art scene of the 14th century; his identity is being investigated through unprecedented trajectories and theories. Others include Allegretto Nuzi and Francescuccio di Cecco Ghissi, with their precious preponderance of decoration, anti-naturalistic and bordering on abstraction, and Gentile da Fabriano, who revived the Giottesque tradition, renewing and updating it through numerous influences.

The connection between painting and sculpture is investigated thanks to the presence of the most significant artists of the period, such as the Master of the Magi. His works reveal a connection with the oeuvre of Allegretto Nuzi, whose inspiration is very much alive and present.
