Ongoing restorations after the earthquake
If you read about Fabriano in any guidebook, I am sure that all information regarding opening hours or “locations” of exhibits are outdated by the time you arrive. This, as Fabriano was very badly hit by the earthquake in 1997 (the one that destroyed parts of basilica San Francesco in Assisi). But as Fabriano is not as famous as Assisi in Umbria for example, it had to depend on much less money and donations for restauration. My guidebook (of 2007) for example mentioned that the exhibits of Pinacoteca are somewhere near Miliani paper mill (outside of the town centre). But when I was there it had already been moved back to the Ex-Ospedale. Bill Thayer mentions on his website that he saw much scaffolding while he was there in 2000 and 2004.
When I was there (April 2008), there was not much scaffolding and many churches and museums were open. Some minor restorations and renovations are still ongoing though. If you visit churches for example, leave a donation in the box and remember how much it must have been in terms of money and effort to bring back the former glory. Many private initiatives have formed after the earthquake, which is also characterising the locals: they really love their beautiful town and stick together after horrible events. (off topic: can we Germans learn from that please?)
