The Diocesan Museum of Santo Stefano al Ponte is housed in an annex of the church of Santo Stefano al Ponte. There has been a church on this site since Medieval times, although the current church was rebuilt in the late-Renaissance and again in the eighteenth century in order to safeguard the many precious works of art from around the diocese which are on display here.The church of Santo Stefano al Ponte has been collecting and housing historic works of art since 1981.
