The Isola Maggiore Documentation Center The Centro di Documentazione dell’Isola Maggiore is inside the Casa del Capitano del Popolo. The Center was instituted to illustrate the major events in the history of the island on an economic, artistic and religious level. The display is arranged in the rooms inside the building on a thematic basis: in the basement some processional Gonfalons are displayed, which testify the fervent religiosity of the inhabitants of the island, where there were once numerous confraternities. At the entrance, on the main floor, a series of panels and graphic reconstructions illustrate the economic life on the island and its main source of wealth, i.e. fishing. Finally, on the first floor, the main works of art preserved in the churches of the island are presented and aspects concerning them are further investigated as a preliminary to the visit.
