The Pinacoteca Civica "Francesco Podesti" in Ancona, Italy, have acquired a painting by the artist from whom the museum takes its name. The full length Portrait of the Marquises Busca was made when Francesco Podesti (1800-1895) was a mere 25 years old and is considered one of his earliest masterpieces. The work was acquired from the Mellini Collection in Vernoa and will eventually hang in a prominent position within the refurbished galleries in Ancona.
