Artworks
 
 
The diocesan collection gathers art from different periods, separated in chronological and thematic areas. The museum starts with a small collection of ancient artwork such as the Greek mirror, dating V century B.c and a roman marble tablet, reused in the  XVII century.

Walking through the room the visitor will encounter important sculptures in wood and silver. Such as the imposing silver bust of the Achiropita, among the wooden sculptures , attention worthy are the Assumption and Saint Francis of Paola by Vincenzo Zaffino.

Important paintings are the icon of the "Pieta" painted in 1499 by the Cretan Andreas Pavias; a precious miniature on parchment representing the mystical wedding of Sainth Catherine, made by an roman-tuscan artist between XVI and XVII century and canvases of different periods.

There's also an interesting collection of liturgical objects such as the ring of Saint Nilo, the silver monstrance called "Greek sphere" the silver protection of our Lady Achiropita and chalices, reliquaries and monstrances in chiseled silver.

The collection is furthermore enriched by liturgical vestments, ancient manuscripts on parchment and musical codices
