Jewellery room

On the first floor of the palace it is possible to visit a small room devoted to jewellery which comprises different precious religious objects with peculiar uses and belonging to different periods. The most important is doubtless the precious Liturgical book cover, decorated with refined ivory plates, which dates back to the 10th century, afterwards inserted into a metal frame of the 13th century.

 

Ciceri collection

The large entrance room on the first floor contains about twenty paintings belonging to Luigi Ciceri’s collection donated to the Museum by his wife in memory of this scholar. The pieces are displayed according to a subdivision that accords to the subject dealt with: subjects concerning Jesus’ life,  Mary’s life and the Saints’ lives. Even though they were collected in this region, these paintings were manufactured in Austrian, Bavarian and Bohemian workshops between the 18th and 19th century and refer to popular and domestic piety.
