The Capuchin Museum

The Capuchin Museum was born with the intention of presenting to the many visitors from all over the world a living and organic reality, which, through the Church, the Cemetery and the Museum exhibition, presents itself in its historical becoming. This institution traces history, presenting the exemplary life of the Capuchin saints such as, St. Felix of Cantalice, St. Crispin of Viterbo and St. Lawrence of Brindisi, but also figures of vast public resonance such as St. Pio of Pietrelcina, stigmatized for 50 years and Father Mariano of Turin, first multimedia preacher, Father Gianfranco M. Chiti wise and holy educator of countless ranks of soldiers and then of young Capuchins.

The museum exhibition

The eight rooms of the exhibition itinerary capture the simple lifestyle as well as the continuous closeness to the poorest and the great spirit of fraternity that characterizes the religious order of the Capuchin Friars Minor.

The work of Caravaggio

The fifth section focuses on ``St. Francis in meditation``, a work created by the great artist Caravaggio, specifically for the Convent of the Capuchin Friars.
