Diocesan Museum Francesco Gonzaga

  • Open

It opened in 1983 and was reorganized in 2008; its premises are located in the surviving cloister of the 14th century monastery of Saint Agnes. One section of the museum is dedicated to liturgical furnishings, with a selection of furniture and fi ne chalices, pyxes, ostensories, reliquaries, astylar crosses, rings and pectoral crosses that document the development of the goldsmith’s art from the 13th to the 20th century. Another section is dedicated to the history of the diocese, with paintings of bishops and documents, often surprising, concerning specifically Mantuan devotions, in particular the Most Precious Blood and the patron saint, Anselm. Another interesting section holds nearly all the Gonzaga jewellery that was not sold or looted.
