In the Parish Church of San Pietro in Bossolo, a collection of artworks and artefacts from the territory are on display

The Museum of Sacred Art in Tavarnelle Val di Pesa is housed in the rectory of San Pietro in Bossolo and has a collection of artworks, relics and documents coming from the churches that were under the jurisdiction of two parish churches: San Pietro in Bossolo and San Donato in Poggio.

Of particular interest are some pieces of sacred silverware, among which two 12th-century processional crosses and the monstrance by Nicola de Angelis from 1706.

In the rooms dedicated to the territory of the Parish Church of San Donato in Poggio, you can admire paintings of importance, such as the Triptych attributed to Ugolino di Nerio and the Madonna by the Maestro di Marradi, as well as 17th and 18th-century works and furnishings made in the workshops of Florentine silversmith like Zanobi Biagioni and Vittorio Querci.
