Museo d'Arte Sacra S. Martino
The Museum of Sacred Art San Martino is in Alzano Lombardo; it has its seat inside a sixteenth century edifice constructed by Earls Tasso; in 1670 it became the seat of Earls Pelliccioli of the Palace. The museum was founded in 1995, after a complex restructuring intervention due to the extreme precariousness in which the structure was. Nowadays, after a series of enlargements, the museum course is organized in three expositive levels, according to specific didactic principles. Inside you can find important pictures, sculptures and jewellery; furthermore vestments, altar clothes and holy vessels, connected with the rites of the Catholic faith, which let you understand, in particular, the developments of Counter-Reformation events. The adjacent seventeenth century Sacristies, with ligneous furnishings by the Fantoni and Caniana families, together with San Martino Basilica, with its decorative baroque apparatus, represent an integral part of the course.
