Cimabue, Giotto, the Lorenzetti brothers and Simone Martini’s eternal value donated paintings. Continues the succession of valuable artistic tests in Romanesque church of S. Rufino and the Gothic Basilica of St. Clear.

The increase of the sacred and the Gallery of Contemporary Art: The De Chirico, Rosai, Greek, Carrà, Rouault (a few among the many present) are conjoined in a production entity Christological.
