At the end of the fourteenth century the Trinci family bought the houses and towers from the wealthy merchant Giovanni di Ceccarello , and restructured them in a single complex. The Trinci Family saw their heyday in the early fifteenth century, when it hosted many scholars and humanists such as Francesco da Fiano, which inspired the frescoes  by Gentile da Fabriano which represents a figurative encyclopedia of the humanistic culture.

Today, after lesions of the earthquakes of 1831-32 it has a neoclassical façade; the civic collections were relocated inside and it hosts the major exhibitions in the city.
