Among the works: paintings by Ligurian-Provencal school of the XIV and XVI; pieces of silverware belonging to the Treasury of the Cathedral (St.Calocero and St.Verano's reliquary busts, 1475); in addition to paintings including the "St. Catherine's Martyrdom", by Guido Reni, and the "St.Verano' s Miracle" by Giovanni Lanfranco. The tour ends with a visit to the Red Room for papal audiences, that keeps the red silk damask upholstery (1775) and contemporary furnishings. Late eighteenth century, the small marble statue depicting the "Madonna with Child seated on clouds," by Francesco Maria Schiaffino.
