Museo d'Arte Sacra

Museo d'Arte Sacra-photo: luccapro.sns.itIn 1936, in a XVIIth century building, seat of the Confraternita di San Michele e San Vincenzo, the Museum of Sacred Art was set up. In origin it was simply a place where paintings, vestments, altar cloths, holy vessels and other sacred objects of the XIVth - XVIth centuries were collected and kept, in particular those exposed to theft in country churches.

At present the Museum is being reorganised and rearranged; two new rooms on the ground floor contain wooden sculptures, paintings and precious jewellery. On the upper floor, in the hall of the Confraternity with its eighteenth century stalls, is a large Flemish tapestry dated 1516; in the remaining rooms a large number of paintings, wooden items used in processions, altar-hangings and sacred silverware made in the XVIIIth century by Lucca's best craftsmen are exhibited.
