  • I came back to visit this museum to cover carefully the objects that I had seen. We were greeted by a young lady with competence, staff explained the most interesting pieces. It also showed us, within the library several books of great value. Book and visit this beautiful museum that does not relate to the large circuits. I forgot ... admission is free.

  • The silver Museum is housed in the former Treasury of the Cathedral of the assumption. Ownership of church property, the Museum preserves objects of sacred art as chalices, pastoral Episcopal rings, silver statues and relics owned by the diocese, dating from 1600 to 1900. Among the various objects include a silver monstrance by Pietro tannins and the reliquary containing the Holy Crown of thorns of Christ, donated by Charles I of Anjou to the Bishop of Ariano: tradition has it that the sovereign, grateful to the city that was sacked by the Hohenstaufens to remain faithful, decided to donate in 1269 Crown two thorns of Christ. Since then the relics, placed in the Cathedral Treasury, every year in August are carried in procession along the streets of the town. You can also admire the silver statue of the patron saint of the city, dating from the 17th century.
