San Pietro in Bossolo Sacred Art Museum
CULTURE / HISTORY/ MUSEUM
The Sacred Art Museum of Tavarnelle Val di Pesa is located within the rectory of the parish church of San Pietro in Bossolo. This church probably dates back to the second half of the 11th century and has preserved its original appearance until today, thanks also to the restoration work carried out in 1946-1947.
Today, the museum collects artworks, precious objects, and documents from the churches that were under the jurisdiction of two parishes: San Pietro in Bossolo and San Donato in Poggio.
The prestigious collection includes several ancient paintings, such as the “Madonna and Child” by Meliore and the “Madonna delle Grazie” by Rossello di Jacopo Franchi, as well as panels executed by Neri di Bicci for Niccolò Sernigi and works by Lorenzo di Bicci and Jacopo da Empoli. Of particular interest are some pieces of sacred silverware, including two processional crosses from the 13th century and the ostensorium by Nicola de Angelis from 1706.
In the rooms dedicated to the territory of the parish of San Donato in Poggio, visitors can admire important paintings such as the triptych attributed to Ugolino of Nerio and the Madonna by the Master of Marradi, as well as sixteenth and seventeenth-century works and furnishings made in the workshops of Florentine silversmiths such as Zanobi Biagioni and Vittorio Querci.
