About the museum

The Diocesan Museum of the Episcopal Seminary of Caltanissetta, founded in 1983 by Monsignor Giovanni Speciale, after considerable work of expansion lasted twenty years, was reopened to the public in 2007 with an extension that occupies the entire ground floor of the Episcopal Palace.

It exhibits more than five hundred works of art from the sixteenth to the twenty-first century: paintings, sculptures, silvers, vestments and objects of applied art, from the churches of the Diocese of Caltanissetta, in partcular Caltanissetta, Bompensiere, Calascibetta, seat of the Royal Chapel, Mussomeli, Resuttano, Santa Caterina Villarmosa Serradifalco, Sutera.

The museum's collections provide an overview of the various artistic and cultural realities in the area and trace the history of the local church as a community of believers who celebrate and express their faith embellishing the sacred places with altarpieces, ornaments and precious vestments.

There is also a contemporary art section that houses a valuable twentieth-century collection.
