Museo Diocesano di Vallo della Lucania

Bishop Biagio D'Agostino got started the collection in the years 1960s-1970s; then it was enlarged in the 1980s by Bishop Giuseppe Casale who, in collaboration with the Department of Artistic and Architectural Heritage of Salerno, has established the museum and the art gallery.
The museum has several exhibition rooms: the room of the Stations of the Cross dating back to the 18th century; the room “Sala Liturgica” where are exhibit the Liturgical Vestments, Holy furnishings and silver objects. Among these, there are a 14th century Chalice made of enamelled silver and a Bridal casket, made of inlaid wood and bone. The art gallery is rich in polyptych paintings of the 15th and 16th centuries, among which the Trasfigurazione (1577) by Marco Pino da Siena and some wood carvings.
