Favorite thing: Piazza Toschi Mosca and its Palace Toschi Mosca hosts the Civic Museums of Pesaro. In the Civic Museums you can browse through one of Italy's finest collections of Renaissance and Baroque pottery, much of it striking for its spontaneous, almost modern, use of colour and design.
Churches in the city center
Favorite thing: This is one of the churches that I found in Pesaro. I didn't have the time to ask to someone for the name of this church but I took this picture just to show you how beautiful was the entrance with all those decorating elements.
Piazza del Popolo- The Fountain
Favorite thing: The Fountain of Piazza del Popolo is situated in the heart of the Square and is the most elegant Fountain of the City. Built between 1588 and 1593, to replace the old one, the Fountain was destroied during the Second World War. It was rebuilt in 1960 following the original project, and in 1988.
The symbol of the town
Favorite thing: This sculpture made of bronze represents today the symbol of Pesaro. Built for the Montréal Expò in 1967 by Arnaldo Pomodoro, a polyestere copy was taken in Pesaro in 1971. In 1998 The polyestere version was replaced by this impressive "ball" made of bronze. The citizens of Pesaro call it "Palla di Pomodoro", palla means ball in italian!!
Fondest memory: I miss to see it in real because I was in the old town for a walk. The 'BALL' stand in Piazzale della Libertà, the new part of the city close to the see. It takes almost a bus to join the new side if you are in the old part.
Churches in the center
Favorite thing: Turning on the right of palazzo Ducale into Corso XI settembre, at about 200 meters you will find S. Agostino Church with its wonderful gothic-venetian's Portal, that was built in 1413 a.c.
The Rossini's house
Favorite thing: Walking along Via Rossini, you'll find on your right the modest house where Italy's great opera composer Gioachino Rossini was born in 1792.
Favorite thing: After a general view of the fountain I decided to take a picture of this nice marble statue, just to show in particular one of the tritons that decorate the sparkling fountain.
