Camaiore
The Sacred Art Museum in Camaiore is housed in the headquarters of the Confraternity of the Santissimo Sacramento, a building from the 17th century, and was founded to collect and conserve paintings, furnishings and sacred vestments that date to between the 14th and 16th centuries.

Amongst the works on display, there’s a large Flemish tapestry from 1516 with scenes of the Passion of Christ by Peter de Pannemaker, as well as a small, wooden Madonna and Child from the 1200s, the Anguilla Polyptych (15th century) and a polychrome wooden Virgin Annunciate by Matteo Civitali (15th century), each of which attest to the widespread influence of Lucca’s artistic culture throughout the territory.

There are also enamelled chalices from the Siena school, the embossed processional cross from the Church of Santa Maria Albiano dating to the early 1300s, a wooden St. Anthony the Abbot and the 15th-century altarpiece also coming from the Church of Santa Maria Albiano depicting theMadonna and Child Enthroned with Saints.
