Museo Biografico di Padre Pio

Where Via Pirgiano, 25, San Giovanni Rotondo (Foggia)

The “Padre Pio Biography Museum” is a wax museum, built in 2001 by the Museum Project Society of Florence in collaboration with the Municipality of San Giovanni Rotondo. It is located in the historic centre (Via Pirgiano),in the building where the Knt. Francesco Morcaldi lived and also several times, the mayor of St. Giovanni Rotondo and close friend of Padre Pio (he fought in the 20s to avoid the departure of Padre Pio in San Giovanni Rotondo, heading town events also in favour of the Capuchin friar). In the museum rooms, the main scenes of the life of St. Pio of Pietrelcina are shown. After a radical restructuring of the Morcaldi palace, the ten scenes that constitute the core of the museum were ready. These, after a careful study of the life of Padre Pio were chosen, with the advice from the Minor Capuchin Friars of San Giovanni Rotondo, and a special committee made up of historians and representatives of the City Council. A part of the stands was carried out in Pisa, in the Opus studies, a trade association formed by young and sensitive artists responsible for designing and carrying out the work
