Founded in 1923 and located in the cloister of St. Lorenzo Cathedral, the Capitular Museum assembles various types of artworks, which attest the intense artistic activity carried out in Perugia for the City’s Cathedral. Most interesting are: the painting by Luca Signorelli (1484) representing “The Virgin and Child with Saints”, the reconstruction of “Altar of Mercy” by Agostino di Duccio (1473), wooden sculptures, a rare display of illuminated manuscripts and two sections dedicated to ecclesiastic furnishings and liturgical paraments.
