The Armoury keeps the weapons collected by Marquis Raffaello Albicini and donated to the Civic Museums by his son Livio. A hundred pieces had been added afterwards, but they perfectly match with the original 410 weapons.
The variety of the relics is impressing; they go from the XV to the XIX century.
There are pole weapons, armours in different styles and the armour of Bruno Zampeschi lord of Forlimpopoli. There is also a wide collection of swords and dress swords.
There are 17 harquebuses and a rich group of small firearms.
