The origins of the Museum

The idea of opening a museum in San Marino is to be ascribed to Count Luigi Cibrario, Minister of Vittorio Emanuele II and Plenipotentiary (counsellor and delegate) of the Republic from 1862 to 1871.

The Government and the cultural authorities of the country welcomed the idea with enthusiasm and gathered a large number of works of art and other objects related to local history, while Cibrario invited many of his friends to donate works of art and archaeological finds to the Republic.

This room gathers some works constituting the first donations to the State Museum by the Knights Gaetano Spelluzzi, Alfonso Reichmann and Carlo De Bruch in 1865. Particularly important is the Spelluzzi’s donation, rich in medieval and renaissance objects and paintings of different provenance and great value.
