About us

The “Museo del Mare” of San Benedetto del Tronto, located within the town’s wholesale fish market complex, on the north quay of its port area, is a multifaceted museum centre celebrating the culture and history of the Adriatic Sea. The museum is composed of six different museum sections, each one showcasing a peculiar aspect of the town’s rich sea traditions.


The section named “Antiquarium Truentinum” is an archaeological museum which gathers the most ancient artefacts found in and around the city. Antiquities range from Neolitic findings to relics from the Roman era. The museum also features artefacts from the “Picentes”, Italic tribes which inhabited the area during the Iron Age.

Inside the section named “Museo delle Anfore” (the Amphorae Museum), visitors will find a unique collection of ancient urns from all over the Mediterranean region, brought ashore by the nets of fishing boats throughout the last century.

The “Augusto Capriotti” Fish Museum offers a significant insight about the Adriatic and oceanic wildlife, with a wide array of taxidermied and live specimens, fossils and shells, and an inspiring 3D experience simulating scuba diving in the depths of the Adriatic sea.

The “Museo della Civiltà Marinara delle Marche” (Regional Fishing and Seafaring Culture Museum), will soak its visitors in the everyday life of fishermen and their families. A narrative journey through tools and objects of the Adriatic sea life, the experience is supported by multimedia installations and located inside a suggestive space of the local fish market, where a wide balcony overlooks the whole port area.


Located inside the early nineteenth century Piacentini Palace, in the old town of San Benedetto, the “Pinacoteca del Mare” (Art Gallery of the Sea) features paintings, photographs and drawings from the town’s civic collection, including works by Alfred Châtelain, Adolfo De Carolis, Armando Marchegiani and Angelo Landi.


In addition to the “Museo del Mare” indoors sections, an exhibit of contemporary sculpture can be visited while taking a relaxing walk along the south quay of the city, which the yearly International Sculpture Symposium “Scultura Viva” (taking place since 1996) has gradually shaped into an open-air museum, called “Museo d'Arte sul Mare” (Museum Of Art on the Sea).
