Museo diocesano Albani

Where Piazza Pascoli, 2, Urbino (Pesaro e Urbino)
This itinerary in the extraordinary artistic heritage of the Archdiocese of Urbino – Urbania – Sant’Angelo in Vado, is named in memory of the noble family from Urbino of Pope Clement XI Albani (1700-1721) and its artistic patronage which contributed to enriching the “treasures of the cathedral”. Since 1964, the Episcopal Complex has been the location of a museum in continual growth, strengthened by recent discoveries and findings of which the Archdiocese territory is rich, and are today displayed in a completely renewed setting.
It holds a rich assortment of ecclesiastical furnishings, from the XIII century to our times; third and fourth century illuminated manuscripts, chalices and reliquaries of filigree and enamel, majolica and porcelain, amber, gold and silver, crystals, ivory pastoral staffs, and liturgical vestments lined with precious metals. Unique are the monumental brass lectern from the library of the Duke of Urbino, Federico da Montefeltro and the bronze candelabrum cast by Francesco di Giorgio Martini.
